Pacquiao threw Algieri in a halfway boxing court with the power of his left hand. The American boxer, appearing seriously injured continued his fight until the 12 round that led to Algieri's sixth knockdown during the Pacquiao Algieri fight, Saturday night.

"I came and did my best and that was good enough," Pacquiao stated. "I was trying to knock him out but he was fast and moving so it was hard to get the K.O."
