Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will be defending his WBO (World Boxing Organization) welterweight title against American boxer Christopher Algieri late Sunday morning (Manila time). The fight will be held at the Cotai Arena inside The Venetian Macao in Macau, China.

Pacquiao is coming from wins over Brandon Rios and Timothy Bradley. Algieri on the other hand is also coming from a victory over Russian fighter Ruslan Provodnikov last June, which earned him the WBO light welterweight belt.

Pacquiao’s professional record stands at 56 wins (38 via knockout), 5 losses, and two draws.  Aligieri, on the other hand, remains unbeaten in his twenty fights.

Despite his unblemished record, the photogenic American boxer isn’t being given much of a chance to beat Pacquiao. For the bettors in Las Vegas, the Filipino congressman is the clear favorite in the fight.

According to SBNation.com, “Pacquiao is currently a -700 favorite (risk $700 to win $100) to pick up the win while Algieri is a +450 underdog (risk $100 to win $450),” with a lot predicting him to win via knockout.

Knocking out an opponent, however, is something Pacquiao hasn’t accomplished since mid-2009. And while some boxing experts argue that this is proof of Pacquiao’s declining performance, his trainer Freddie Roach pointed out that his fighter is just being “too compassionate” to his opponents.

Those who wish to watch the fight as it happens have limited options to do so. One is to go to malls where the fight will be shown, like in SM Cinemas (click here to reserve tickets) and Robinsons MovieWorld (click here).
