Algieri Eyes Manny Pacquiao Showdown in November

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Undefeated Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) pulled off the biggest win of his career on Saturday night, when he got up from two knockdowns in the first round and boxed his way to win a twelve round split decision over heavily favored Ruslan Provodnikov to capture the WBO junior welterweight championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Prior to the fight, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum said the winner could very well land a crack at WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao in the fall. Pacquiao is scheduled for a tentative date of November 22nd in Macau, China.

Pacquiao, like Provodnikov, is trained by Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach. Algieri believes that he can pull off yet another upset with Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs).

"[Pacquiao is] a good fight. 'It's a great fight. To be in there with a guy like Manny, definitely a future Hall of Famer, it would be awesome and I think stylistically it could be a good matchup. He's another dangerous guy but I think my style would match up well. That could be a really good possibility but I don't know what happens next," Algieri said.
