Life Comes Next Moment: Pacquiao: 'It is a fight I want'
Sunday November 23rd, 2014

MACAU (AP) -- Manny Pacquiao got the big knockdowns he desperately craved, battering Chris Algieri around the ring Sunday on his way to a decision win in a lopsided welterweight title fight.

Pacquiao chased Algieri from the opening bell, knocking him down repeatedly and dominating from the opening bell. About the only thing Pacquiao didn't get was his first knockout in five years, settling instead for a lopsided 12-round decision against an opponent who seemed unwilling to engage.

By the time it was over, Algieri had gone down six times. And Pacquiao had a signature win that should put to rest the idea he's declining and maybe even set up a fight next year with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
