MANILA, Philippines—Emmanuel “Jimuel” Pacquiao Jr. lost his first amateur fight on United States soil over the weekend.

Pacquiao gained learning experience from American Chris Smith, who won on points.

Pacquiao and Smith figured in a slugfest in the first two rounds to the delight of a raucous crowd at United Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco.

Smith, however, appeared to have more left in his tank while Pacquiao slowed down in the third and final round.

FEATURED STORIES

A relentless Smith caught Pacquiao against the ropes and scored a standing eight-count late in the round.

The 21-year-old Pacquiao, who was gracious in defeat, failed to make it 3-0 since starting his amateur career in the US earlier this year.

Pacquiao, the firstborn of boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, earned a couple of unanimous decision victories over Andres Rosales in March in his US debut and Jonathan Barajas two months later.
