Former WBO World super lightweight champion Chris Algieri talks about the fight coming up this Friday, May 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY when he will take on former WBC Silver welterweight champion Amir Khan.
Algieri is currently trained by John David Jackson.
Algieri rose to fame in June 2014 at Barclays Center when he upset Ruslan Provodnikov for a super lightweight world title. The 31-year-old returns to the scene of his greatest triumph on May 29 to take on the British superstar Khan.
The former kickboxing champion from Huntington, New York, built his undefeated boxing record on the strength of his excellent movement and skill with the jab.
His victory over Provodnikov earned him a shot at Manny Pacquiao in Nov. 2014, a bout that Algieri ultimately lost.
He had previously defeated strong contenders Mike Arnaoutis and Emanuel Taylor on the way to his world title.
