Pacquiao on Algieri win: “I didn’t want to be careless”

Pacquiao wins

Following his win over Chris Algieri in Macau last night, Manny Pacquiao spoke to media members about why he was unable to put Algieri away, despite knocking the American down 6 times throughout the bout.

“He didn’t want to engage. He only engaged during the start of the first round. I didn’t really have a hard time against him. I also just didn’t want to be careless. In the past, I’ve gotten a loss because I got careless. I dropped him many times, but Algieri is just really tough.”
