Manila - Manny Pacquiao will return to China for his next fight, taking on Chris Algieri in the gambling enclave of Macau.

The scheduled 22 November fight for the piece of the welterweight title held by Pacquiao comes a year after the Filipino first fought in Macau, beating Brandon Rios on a decision that snapped a two-fight losing streak.

Pacquiao last fought in April when he defeated Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas.

A relative unknown, Algieri got the fight with Pacquiao by winning a split decision last month over Ruslan Provodnikov in a light welterweight title fight.

Algieri, a former kick boxer, is 20-0 with eight knockouts, while Pacquiao is 56-5-3 (38 Kos).
