Chris Algieri (19-0, 9 KOs) is a sizable underdog heading into his June 14 HBO fight with Ruslan Provodnikov (23-0, 16 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, but he's not worried.

That's because Algieri has identified some weaknesses in the Siberian Rocky's game from watching tape, and he plans to capitalize on them to take home the WBO 140-pound title.

"Just based on past fights, there is a weakness with dealing with a jab and a boxer and movement, but really those are the things that we've been trying to work most on," Algieri said on a recent conference call. "But, at the end of the day it's a fight. Ruslan is going to press the action. I'm going to have to stand and fight at times. So, we'll be ready for that as well."

The fight was originally set to take place at the Nassau Coliseum in Algieri's hometown of Long Island, but Algieri won't have to travel too far even with the new location.

The former kickboxer has been training in Las Vegas in preparation for his HBO debut in order to get top sparring.

I think if Algieri is able to box and stick to a game plan and keep the fight at distance then he may have a chanc............nahhhhh never mind.

He has no chance, the hype for this fight is dead in the water

This guy will have to box flawlessly and not tire to beat provodnikov. Provos like a shark, once he smells blood or fatigue he goes for the kill.

It does... just try not to get hurt

Algieri is right, but I think his lack of power will be his undoing. Besides a good jab and movement you got to have at least some pop to keep Provo at bay.
