I am starting to feel it. The juices are now starting to flow for next week. It's going to be a great night for boxing, a great night for Team Algieri and a great night for Long Island.

For Manny Pacquiao, he will lose nothing in defeat. I am sure he will go out on his shield. If he so desires, he can even call upon his rematch clause.

Losing to the superbly-conditioned, tireless, tenacious and talented Algieri will be nothing for Team Pacquiao or his supporters to be ashamed of.

Fight Week is just about here.

I'm starting to feel it too. Feeling how silly C-Al is going to be looking after talking so big, and believing in one too many fairy tales. Anybody who told him what he claims is full of syet. No karate-mill dude, Kickboxing dude or MMA dude can hang with any elite boxers in a straight-pure-boksing sparring session or a fight.

Wow! Go and look at the who's who in C-Al's record. He has beat one B- pug and got a home-cooking gift over a B+ pug. He is going to be in vicious storm in six days. Holla!

More like sparring session RG, but the fight has to hyped some kind of way. Algieri can box, but has no power to keep Pac from eventually catching him. No power, and in there faster fighter (feet and hands) = long night or short night depending on how you look at it

I have to say Commish, I don't see it. But then again, I didn't think Algieiri would be that competitive with Provodnikov and he proved me wrong in that fight.

The only way I see Pacquiao having issues in this fight is if he is too focused on getting the ko. If he fights his fight, he can dominate every round and win easy. But if he starts searching for one punch, Algieiri could out hustle him in spots.

However, I think Freddie Roach has Pacquiao well prepared and won't let him fall into a trap of just seeking a knockout. Yes they may say in the build up that is what they want and expect. But that's fight build up. In the ring, Roach knows how to set up a winning game plan and will be pushing Pac early to work behind the jab and showcase his speed (and not necessarily power) early to try to show Algieiri that he is not in Pac's class. Pac will try to hand flashy combinations, similar to what he did against Rios, with not necessarily the power behind them but instead showing the speed to keep Algieri at bay.

I think Algieri will have some spots and fight better than a lot of others think he will. But in the end, Pac fights smart and uses his speed to control the fight. That's the big difference between the two and as long as he does not fall into a trap seeking a ko with one big shot should control the majority of the fight en route to a wide decision win.

22nd. Nov would be a great day for Manny and Algieri fans. Some good fight is expected from these two.
