Round 1- Algieri is feinting and pivoting side to side, hardly throwing or landing anything. As he does this, Pacquiao is able to catch him with some straigh lefts down the middle and cut the ring off at times.

Round 2- Algieri lands a solid check hook early, but Pacquiao responds with a combination. Pacquiao also starts to counter the jab with combinations of left hands and right hooks. After blocking seemingly every shot of a combo that Pacquiao throws his way, Algieri slips on a wet spot near the corner, and the ref poorly rules it a knockdown. Despite not being hurt at all, Algieri decides to stay on the move for the remainder of the round, but Pacquiao is able to catch him with a thudding right hook and starts to put some combinations together in the final minute. This was another Pacquiao-round, and due to the shitty call from the ref, it is a big one in his favor.

Round 3- Algieri gets in a decent left hook and right hand over the top, but Pacquiao is able to move him back any time he lands with his straight left. The straight left to the body followed by the right hook to the head lands a few times for Pacquiao, and he is also showing the superior jab between the two when he uses with it.

Round 4- Algieri picks up the pace early, but he’s unable to land any eye-catching shots whatsoever. Him engaging more allows Pacquiao to capitalize on his right hook and left hand more frequently. Pacquiao starts to dig several right hooks and uppercuts to the body, and an uppercut through the guard seems to have Algieri hurt momentarily, but Pacquiao does not take advantage. Good rounf for Pacquiao, yet this would not even be his most lopsided round in the fight.

Round 5- Now Algieri is finally able to utilize his lead right hand as an actual weapon in this fight. As expected, Pacquiao walks through these powerless blows, but that doesn’t change the fact that Algieri still scored well with the shot. Pacquiao does land some left hands over the top and with greater emphasis as expected, but Algieri edges the round by beating Pacquiao to the punch and by dictating the pace. As it stands, this is the only round in the fight that one can even score for Algieri.

Round 6- As Algieiri is firing with the straight right to the body and jab, Pacquiao is looking to time him. His first moment of success with this strategy comes when he briefly puts Algieri on retreat from a counter right hook. A sharp counter left hand staggers Algieiri. As Algieiri goes in retreat again, Pacquiao follows up with a combination, and a short left hand causes him to hit the deck and do a somersault. Pacquiao hunts down Algieri and drops him again with a 1-2 combo. While Algieri did slip in the same spot once again ironically, the knockdown is legit since punches put him down. Huge round for Pacquiao.

Round 7- They start to trade their respective left and right hands, and as one can expect, Pacquiao has the greater success with his power hand. Whenever he lands his left, he is able to move Algieri back, disrupt his rhythm and make him reset. Algieri is more active with the jab, but Pacquiao is slipping his mostly and landing more accurately with his.

Round 8- Pacquiao is landing consistently with the looping left and counter right hook. Algieri is staying active with the jab, but Pacquiao is able to negate it altogether with his head movement, parry, and counter shots. The few combinations that land in the round expectedly are landed by Pacquiao too. Algieri complains to the ref about a hip shot at one point, which is a bad look.

Round 9- Pacquiao is still putting combinations together, while Algieiri is looking to land one shot at a time. A lull in the action occurs, which follows up with one of the funniest moments in boxing history: Algieri’s trainer in commentary claims Algieri is (somehow) gonna knock Pacquiao out, and infamously says he’s gonna let him out of the box in the next round.. only for Pacquiao to spin his head and send him crashing on his back with a vicious left hand right after he says this nonsense. Algieri barely gets up, and Pacquiao goes for the kill, landing power shots from numerous angles. A pair of left hooks to the head force Algieri to take a knee. Once he takes the count again, Algieri retreats, covers up, and holds, basically anything he can do to survive. This does not prevent Pacquiao from scoring with some more looping lefts and right hooks before the round is up though. Tremendous round for Pacquiao. It is impressive that Algieri even made it out of this round.

Round 10- Pacquiao is merely chasing after Algieri, but is potshotting with the left effectively. Algieri seems to be interested in nothing more than to survive this round, allowing Pacquiao to pick off shots on him with little difficulty. A left hand-right hookercut combination sends Algieri sliding across the ring and into another somersault for what is the sixth knockdown of the fight. Pacquiao does not have time to follow up properly, but puts another lopsided round in the bag.

Round 11- While Pacquiao does not land any virtually damaging blows after smacking Algieri around in the past two rounds, Pacquiao still is able to have his way easily. Algieri shows grit and throws some combinations, but he isn’t landing anything. On the other hand, Pacquiao is throwing his rhythm off with his jab, landing his looping left, right hook, and left uppercut with little difficulty, whether it is thrown as a lead or a counter.

Round 12- Algieri seems content to trade a bit at the start, which causes him to absorb a few left hands and right hooks. This causes Algieri to disengage for the remainder of the round, but Pacquiao is still able to find him with several looping lefts and right hooks, and control with the jab when he lands it. Despite not getting the knockout, Pacquiao wins an obvious and incredibly wide unanimous decision. Pacquiao beat Algieri from pillar to post and literally wiped the floor with him, earning himself a 16-18 point lead through 12 rounds in what may be the most one-sided decision win in boxing history. While Algieri may not necessarily be a world class fighter, this still goes down as another easy and impressive win over a prime, young, and undefeated world champion. Pacquiao’s performance was excellent overall, as his timing was fantastic, his footwork excelled, allowing him to cut the distance more often than not on a mobile-Algieri, and he was able to land consistently with every single shot he had in his arsenal for this bout. Algieri showed heart and determination, but ultimately showed to be levels behind Pacquiao, suffered a lopsided beating, and struggled to win a round, winning no more than one tops. I honestlg believe the Pacquiao that beat Cotto would stop this version of Algieri, and not too far into the fight either. Next, Pacquiao would make history with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in arguably the most anticipated boxing match ever, but he would ultimately come up short.
