Pacquiao retains WBO welterweight title

<p>Manny Pacquiao retained his <span class="caps">WBO</span> welterweight title with a one-sided points win over Chris Algieri in Macau on Sunday.</p> <p>The 35-year-old scored six knockdowns and dominated every round to secure a unanimous decision win in front of a packed Cotai Arena.</p> <p>The first knockdown, in the second round, was a combination of a Pacquiao punch and Algieri slipping on the canvas but in the sixth round the American tumbled head over heels and went down again in the same round from a right hook.</p> <p>Three more knockdowns followed as Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division titleholder, continued to assert his domination over Algieri, en route to his 57th win.</p>
