Chris Algieri will be facing the WBO welterweight champion, Manny Pacquiao, on Sunday 23rd of November. Knowing that Algieri is holding a nutrition degree it was expected from him to make weight on Saturday morning at the Cotai Arena in Macau but he exceeded the agreed catchweight of 144lbs by 0.2lbs in his first attempt. After facing Manny Pacquiao he came back again to the empty arena later on and successfully scaled 143.6lbs to make this fight happen.
