Algieri: After I Beat Pacquiao, He Can Fight Mayweather

By Rick Reeno

WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) is fully focused on the biggest fight of his career, when he challenges Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title on November 22nd in Macau, China.

Algieri tells BoxingScene.com that he's not bothered by the recent comments from Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) and his trainer, Freddie Roach, who are already discussing a mega-match next year with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs), who himself is scheduled to face Marcos Maidana in a rematch on September 13th.

Mayweather-Pacquiao can happen, says Algieri, but he predicts the Filipino star will enter that fight with another loss on his record.

When Algieri entered the ring for his June fight with Ruslan Provodnikov - the pre-fight talk centered around a fight between Pacquiao and Provodnikov. Algieri killed that plan with an unexpected twelve round split decision victory to grab away Provodnikov's junior welterweight title. Algieri expects the same scenario to play out in November.

"They did the same thing with the Ruslan fight. They talked about Ruslan's next fight being Manny Pacquiao. I gave the answer 'sure, after I beat him he can go fight Manny Pacquiao.' These guys all have losses, they can go fight each other after I beat them anyway. Mayweather and Pacquiao can go fight after I beat Pacquiao - but after I beat Pacquiao he's going to have to fight me again anyway [because of the rematch clause]," Algieri told BoxingScene.com.
