Former champion Brandon Rios, and his trainer Robert Garcia, tell BoxingScene.com that undefeated Chris Algieri is more than capable of outboxing WBO 140-pound titleholder Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) on June 14th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Algieri's challenge of Provodnikov will be televised in a main event position on HBO.

Garcia stated - "don't be surprised [if he wins], he trained with us for three fights [in Oxnard, California."

Rios, who tried his best to get a fight with Provodnikov, says Algieri's superior boxing ability will outweigh his lack of punching power.

"Look at what happened with Mauricio [Herrera when he faced Danny Garcia]. Mauricio is not a puncher and I think he won that fight. [Algieri] doesn't have a lot of power but he boxes very well. He is a skillful boxer. Don't be surprised if Algieri ouboxes him," Rios told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=hectari]I was saying this before, Algieri is a pretty good boxer from what I seen, he is long and rangy, and he will always pop his jab while circling, this fight will go the distance and be controversial in Ruslans favor but people will say he was robbed. Algieri can box he is like a n...
