    Manny Pacquiao faces Chris Algieri tomorrow night.

    I know some people are complaining about Algieri as an opponent but he earned this fight by winning a championship belt in a fight he was a major underdog in. He has skill and good technique but is lacking in power. Anyways, its always fun watching Pacquiao fight and I hope this goes more than a couple rounds.

    If Pacquiao wins it could finally lead to the fight everyone wants to see. Both Mayweather and Pacquiao have publicly stated they want the fight.

    I agree Pacquiao is not the fighter he once was but he is still very good. I remember when he burst onto the scene against Barrera in 03. Barrera was a Mexican icon and Pacquiao was unknown. Pacquiao absolutely destroyed him. Pacquiao would throw 3-4 punch combos while moving forward. He's not the same guy he once was but he can still put on a show.

    Hi Gwarn! I'll know who won, but I still want to see the fight. I just watched Algieri's fight where his eye closed, but he won. He's tough. Manny is too, but I think his best boxing days are behind him.

    That's what I say! I would like to not know, but there will be too much reporting about it.

    God I love those "changing of the guard" fights.
