Manny Pacquiao retained his WBO welterweight title by knocking Chris Algieri down six times en route to his lopsided points victory over the American, and was quick to call out Floyd Mayweather after the win.

"It's been a long time since I've been wanting this fight, it has to happen," said the eight-weight world champion.

"The fans deserve it. It's a good thing that we talk about that fight. It's time to say yes."

Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum claimed that there is now "no excuses" for the unbeaten Mayweather not to take the fight.

"No excuses. Manny knocked Algieri down six times in one fight. That's twice as many knockdowns as Mayweather has had in all his fights in the last 12 years," the 82-year-old said.

"All they have to do to is pick up the telephone. I'll be at the phone. Manny will be at his phone," Arum added.

 

Pacquiao has now won his last three fights, after battling back from back-to-back defeats. Against Algieri in Macau he looked more dominant than he has in years, beating the previously unbeaten 30-year-old to every punch.

The Filipino won by a unanimous decision after the judges scored it 119-103, 119-103 and 120-102.
