Algieri Says Taylor is Capable of Shocking Adrien Broner

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri is very familiar with Emmanuel Taylor (18-2, 12KOs). Algieri won a tough ten round decision over Taylor in February. Two fights later, Algieri is a beltholder and challenging WBO 147-pound champion Manny Pacquiao on November 22nd in Macau.

Taylor has been able to position himself for big things as well. He won a ten round decision over once highly regarded Karim Mayfield in July, and now faces one of the most recognizable names in boxing, Adrien Broner (28-1, 22KOs), on September 6th at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Algieri says Taylor is certainly capable of pulling off the upset - if he comes in with the right game plan and sticks to it.

"I'm happy for Manny. I give a lot of props to that kid. He's a hell of a fighter. We took him very, very seriously and I had to have a very strict game plan going into that fight. I thank God it went the way it did and we were able to do what we needed to do. Manny is a great fighter but so is Adrien. Adrien is a hell of a fighter. I think if Manny goes out there and uses his jab, he can make this a very interesting fight. He is that good. If he goes out there and doesn't use his jab, I think Broner could pick him apart. I really think it's a pick'em fight, I could go either way," Algieri told BoxingScene.com.

Taylor is 23 yrs old and there's not much power generated. He will be fighting in Broners home town (Cinn.) and will be at a disadvantage. We will see again what Adrian is about by his conditioning and his performance…

If you are willing to eat one in order to land one when broner lifts his shoulder up his entire jaw is open, it's how Maidana got that first knock down. Right jab to the body to get him to…

I expect him to be competitive. Broner close decision maybe a controversial one.

Taylor to linear for me, but sounds like he plans in grinding broner out and broner isn't exactly fleet of foot

[QUOTE=Corelone;14824253]It wouldn't be a shock to me. Broner usually wins with some skill and some size advantage. Maidana was too big, now Taylor might be too skilled and big enough. Some people hate Broner for his outside ring life, but…
