Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KO) has arrived in Macau for Saturday night's PPV fight with Manny Pacquiao, and the 30-year-old WBO welterweight title challenger delivered some high-end plugs for the Venetian upon his arrival.
"With one million square feet of retail space and over 350 stores at the Shoppes at Venetian I think I can get in my daily roadwork and my Christmas shopping, all at the same time," said Algieri to the delight of fans and shop owners alike. "I love Macao. It was great during my last visit on the promotional tour and it is even better this time. I am glad to be able to spend more time here. "
More relevant for boxing fans, Algieri said he's ready for the fight with Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KO), saying he's done his homework and had great sparring in camp:
"I worked hard for over 10 weeks in the most strenuous and productive training camp of my career. I had a lot of different sparring partners, including Zab Judah, giving me different looks to prepare me for anything Pacquiao decides to throw at me. I am 110% prepared for our fight."
Then ladies laughed and shrieked:
When asked how a fighter could be so handsome, Algieri responded, "Every time I enter the ring I look to improve and perfect my master-boxer style of fighting - utilizing the space inside the ring to my advantage. Good defense is the key to preserving my handsomeness," Algieri continued to the laughter and shrieks from his female fans."
