NEW YORK: Errol Spence Jr. did something Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan failed to do against Chris Algieri.Spence capped a dominating performance by stopping Algieri with 48 seconds remaining in the fifth round in a welterweight fight Saturday night at Barclays Center in the main event of the Premier Boxing Champions card.Spence (20-0) had his seventh straight knockout and 17th overall and did so against an opponent who went the distance against Pacquiao and Khan. For Algieri (21-3) it was his third loss in four fights since winning a split decision from Ruslan Provodikov for the WBO junior welterweight championship on June 14, 2013, in Brooklyn. He withstood getting knocked down six times by Pacquiao and went the distance against Khan but facing Spence, Algieri had few answers.
