Algieri Vows Not To Make Ruslan Mistake With Pacquiao
By Edward Chaykovsky
WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) is not going to make the same mistake twice. This past June at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Ruslan Provodnikov caught Algieri with a huge shot the first round and it led to two knockdowns and Algieri suffering a severely damaged eye. Algieri's eye was practically swollen shut by the second round.
"First round I made a mistake. I paid for it for the next eleven and a half rounds. Got a little too aggressive too early against a very dangerous guy," Algieri said.
Algieri will be far more alert, and cautious, when he moves up in weight on November 22nd to challenge Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight championship at the Cotai Arena in the Venetian of Macau, China.
