Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri Highlights

Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri Highlights. Full Fight Highlights.

“He’s in great shape. We used a lot of strength work and a lot of heavy bag work. He’s punching better than ever and him coming back down to a better weight for him; instead of 147, he’s fighting at 144 this fight. He’s a better puncher at that weight and we’re going to have our first knockout in awhile,” stated Freddie Roach, world-class trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, who is adamant about his fighter scoring a knockout victory over undefeated jr. welterweight champion Chris Algieri this Saturday. According to Roach, Pacquiao himself told him that he’ll deliver a knockout victory.

“He hasn’t knocked anyone lately and he wants to get that fire back and he wants a knockout, and [this is] the first time he’s ever told me that he will knock this guy out. I mean, that’s motivation because the press is saying he’s lost his punch because he hasn’t knocked anyone out in awhile. At 144, the punch is coming back,” Roach explained during a recent conference call to promote the bout. “It’s something that Manny wants. The thing is, we know that you can’t go out there looking for a knockout and you just gotta set up and let it happen, to be honest with you. And with his speed and power, the way he’s punching, I believe it will happen, but we’re not going out there looking just to get an early KO. We will set it up and it’ll be by design and not by luck. I’m absolutely expecting a KO.”


Fabricio Werdum VS Mark Hunt Highlights

Fabricio Werdum VS Mark Hunt Highlights

After a shaky first round, Fabricio Werdum managed to right the ship and stop Mark Hunt in Round 2 to lift the interim heavyweight title at UFC 180 in Mexico City on Saturday night.

Werdum survived a Hunt barrage in the first round, including an overhand right and a monstrous uppercut that staggered the Brazilian. Werdum came back in the second round and landed a picture-perfect flying knee that connected flush with Hunt’s left temple, knocking the New Zealander to the mat where Werdum punished him with hammer fists until referee Herb Dean stopped the fight at 2:27 in the second round.

In the crowd, injured heavyweight titlist Cain Velasquez watched intently as Hunt swung mercilessly and appeared one clean punch away from a knockout. Hunt swung with reckless abandon, not caring that he was telegraphing his punches — nor that Werdum was connecting to Hunt’s body with vicious kicks.

Hunt plodded forward to begin Round 2, until he walked into a flying knee. A followup flurry of punches on the ground eventually forced Dean to intervene.

Werdum now will face Velasquez in a unification bout when the American is fully recovered from a knee injury.

After offering respect to Velasquez, Werdum (19-5-1) said he wants their fight to happen in either Mexico City or Brazil.

Much has been made of Werdum’s run to the top of the UFC’s heavyweight division. Despite his world-class jiu-jitsu skills, Werdum was somewhat of a washout in his first run in the UFC during the mid-2000s. The main reason: He was essentially a one-trick pony.

Werdum has returned with a vengeance with massively improved stand-up skills and he showed that in his recent wins over Travis Brown, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Roy Nelson.

He can now count Hunt among those victims.
