Pacquiao retains WBO welterweight title, hands Algieri first loss


Filipino pound-for-pound king Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has dealt American Chris Algieri his first career loss, winning via unanimous decision to successfully defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight crown at the packed Cotai Arena of The Venetian Macau.

Throughout the bout, the eight-division Filipino world champion floored the challenger 6 times, including twice both in the sixth and ninth rounds. Pacquiao clearly outclassed the taller Algieri by showcasing his improved boxing skills that matched his warrior’s heart and incredible fighting form.

The people’s champ prepared intensely for the match at the Wildcard Gym in General Santos City by sparring with three tall welterweight boxers who fit the style of Algieri. At one point, he even broke the nose of a top Ukrainian fighter.

To help him overcome pain especially through punishing sparring sessions and training, Pacquiao relied on Alaxan FR. “Sa ganitong laban, bukod sa pusong palaban na walang inuurungan, kailangan din ng katawang Alaxan na kakayanin ang sakit ng bawat suntok,” said the Pambansang Kamao.

Following Pacquiao’s example, Filipinos have overcome different kinds of body pain in going about their everyday tasks with Alaxan FR. Compared to other solutions, the pain reliever is the best for body aches with its muscle penetrating action that attacks the root cause of pain and inflammation. So whether it’s heavy physical work, stressful long office hours or intense workout sessions, Alaxan FR backs up the Pinoy’s fighting heart and spirit with the much-needed fighting body to make every goal within their reach.

The 12-round WBO 147-pound title-fight was viewed live for free at Alaxan FR Courts of Inspiration in Barangay Mabanogbog, Urdaneta City; Barangay Libjo, Batangas City; and Barangay Caibaan 95-A, Tacloban City.
