Algieri is hoping for the Pac Man next. I don't see it happening but not out of the realm of possibilities either. If he doesn't get that fight, still a lot of options for Algieri.

He has a belt and that may make him a target for a lot of fighters. Terrence Crawford may soon be headed to 140 and he could be a future option for Algieri. Its a tough matchup for Algieri though and one his people may steer clear from unless the payday blows them away.

I think a guy like Thomas Dulorme may be next for Algieri. HBO likes Dulorme a lot and have been trying to steer him into bigger fights.

Dulorme style suits well for Algieiri and Dulorme has his share of questions/flaws. So Algieri's people may jump all over the opportunity.

To me, its a good matchup for the fans as well and the winner would be in really good shape for the future. Personally, I hope the Pac fight for Algieri does not happen (not a good fight in my opinion) and instead the Dulorme fight for Algieri gets made.
