SAN DIEGO, November 18, 2014 – Days before one of the biggest bouts of the fall 2014 boxing season, events are ramping up for the fight between Manny Pacquiao versus Chris Algieri in Macau, China on Saturday, November 22.
Eight division champion Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) and breakout challenger Algieri of New York (20-0, 8 KOs) meet at the Venetian Macau’s Cotai Arena. The fight will be shown on HBO pay per view on Saturday, November 22, at 9 p.m. ET. Communities Digital News will host a live online chat starting with the televised undercard fights.
Short of hopping on a trans Pacific flight in the next few days and snagging one of the last remaining ringside seats, there will be plenty of ways for fight fans to enjoy the action from afar.
All times are Eastern Time.
