With the fight, set to take place in Manau China, now just over two months away and the welterweight title on the line Algieri spoke of his excitement at finally going up against one of the world’s best.

The American boasts a perfect 20-0 professional record, including eight wins by KO, but the November 22 fight against Pacquiao is certainly his biggest to date.

As for Manny Pacquiao, the veteran Filipino laughed of concerns that he will struggle against the 5ft 10 American insisting that he has plenty of experience fighting against boxers who hold a height advantage.

Speaking to reporters gathered at the NYC venue the legend of the sport fielded inevitable questions about whether a fight with long-time nemesis Floyd Mayweather could finally happen in the near future.
