Saturday morning in Macau, Manny Pacquiao and Chris Algieri stepped on the scales in front of a large crowd at the the Cotai Arena. The future hall-of-famer in Pacquiao weighed in comfortably at 143.8, while Algieri missed the catchweight mark of 144 lbs on his first attempt.
Algieri needed to shed an extra .2 lbs, and after a couple of minutes, he weighed in at 143.6, making tomorrow’s bout official. According to his coach Tim Lane, Algieri ‘didn’t need exercise‘ to cut the extra weight and make the limit. He also then says that Manny doesn’t belong at this weight class.
“Pacquiao is a 126 lb dude. Pacquiao should never be at this weight,” Tim Lane exclaims, “The guy probably walks around at 142 lbs and probably ate a hamburger right before this weigh in just to get the weight up.”
The rest of the fighters on the undercard all made weight as well.
