It was an “off day” of sorts here during Manny Pacquiao vs. Chris Algieri fight week, with no major obligations from the main event fighters between yesterday’s press conference and tomorrow’s weigh-in. We still have a huge collection of updates for you though. Right here, you’ll find a whole series of Pacquiao vs. Algieri’s videos, highlighted by Al Bernstein’s Keys to Victory.
In Bernstein’s Pacquiao vs. Algieri analysis, he takes a look at the circumstances of the fight and how each man might be able to win the fight.
For Algieri, Bernstein says he needs to establish his jab, and use it to control distance and use his height and reach advantage. He also needs to avoid trouble by staying off the ropes, and counter effectively, to take advantage of openings and perhaps keep Pacquiao from opening up.
For Pacquiao, he needs to use feints instead of just coming straight inside againt the taller, rangier fighter. He needs to let his hands go and throw combinations, staying busy and making Algieri work. And he needs to land his big straight left hand.
Below, you’ll also find the HBO Boxing news updates and interviews directly with Pacquiao and Algieri. You’ll also find the complete video from the press conference held earlier in the week. Plus, there’s a look back at the Algieri vs. Provodnikov fight.
Tomorrow is the weigh-in, so be sure to check back with us then and hang out with us on Saturday for our live Pacquiao vs. Algieri round by round results.
