Echoing those sentiments, Chris Algieri addressed the crowd, “I got nothing bad to say about Manny. He’s an eight-division world champion. You can’t say anything more about anyone in this sport today. It’s absolutely an honor to share this space with him and to share that ring on November 22. I’m very much looking forward to that night.”

After their public appearance in the Waterfall Atrium, Pacquiao and Algieri made their way to Lagasse’s Stadium, surprising guests that were there to watch football. Pacquaio and Algieri spoke with Yahoo! Sports Radio’s Ken Thomson to close out the night.
