This was a one sided fight, the bad part was Lomachenko injuried his right hand in the 7th round & still dominated this fight, Priryapinyo had more fights, but clearly the former Olympic Lomachenko showed true metal last night, Lomachenko knocks down Piriyapingo in the 4th round & never let up.

(c) Manny Pacquiao(57-5-2 with 38 KOs) def Chris Algieri(20-1 with 8 KO’s), 12 rounds, for the WBO welterweight title in a unanimous decision
The Plan for Chris Algieri & his camp mainly from Trainer Tim Lane proved to be more terrible as the night went on, quotes from Lane during the rounds ending from dailymail.co.uk website
End of round three, after first knock downs: ‘You’re doing beautiful man. Keep it up.’
End of round seven, following another knock-down: ‘This is where we want to be.’
During round nine, seconds before the heaviest knock down: ‘Chris is going to put him to sleep in a few minutes.’
End of round nine: ‘We are exactly where we need to be.’ (Presumably flat on his back.)
End of round 10: ‘Chris, I’m letting you out of the cage.’
End of round 11, at 17 points behind with one round to go: ‘Hit him in the body and stay on his a**. This is The Chris Algieri Show.’
The worse was Lane being interviewed by HBO’s Max Kellerman & told Kellerman in the 9th round that Algieri is going to knock Pacquiao out in the 10th round & right he said that Pacquiao knocked down Algieri for the heaviest knock down in the fight. Clearly Algieri & his camp got overwhelmed by the moment & just got beat by a great fighter in Pacquiao.
Pacquiao 229/669 34%
Algieri 108/469 23%
