NEW YORK CITY – People's champ Manny Pacquiao rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, the first Filipino boxer to do so.

"It’s a good experience," Pacquiao said.

Pacquiao is on a six-city tour to promote his bout with American Chris Algieri in Macau on November 22.

Pacquiao was joined in the event by Algieri.

"That was awesome! Of all things we've done on tour, that was my favorite," Algieri said.

Dozens of fans waited outside the exchange to meet the two boxers.

"Pacquiao, goodluck! Bugbugin mo si Algieri," said fan Lawrence Bautista.

Pacquiao, the winner of world titles in eight different weight divisions, will fight Algieri to keep his WBO Welterweight crown.
