Chris Algieri Retains The Services of Trainer Robert Garcia

Undefeated Jr. Welterweight contender, Chris Algieri (13-0, 6 KOs), has hired the services of hot young trainer Robert Garcia.  The two will start working together in the upcoming week, as Chris will be flying out to the west coast on Monday. 

When asked about training in Oxnard with Garcia, Algieri state, "Robert Garcia is one of the best trainers in boxing and I'm thrilled that we'll be working together.  He's got a stable of elite fighters and I'm looking to fit in with his program.  Keith Trimble and Tim Lane will remain in my corner and Garcia will be taking over as the lead.   I'll be coming to California with the goal to perfect my craft as a prize fighter, and take my career to the next level." 

Delighted to have another promising fighter on his team, Robert Garcia went on to say, "I made some phone calls and everyone says Algieri is a good fighter that has a big following, so I'm happy to help him.  There's going to be a lot of good work with our guys and its going to be a great training camp.  We are excited to have him here."

Damian Ramirez, who co-manages Algieri with Humberto Romero, added, "I believe this is a great move for Chris as he moves forward with his career.  His current trainers will stay on board and Robert will add to their foundation.  Chris will be seeing different looks in Oxnard and I know Robert Garcia can bring something new to his approach.  I'm working on getting Chris back in the ring by April."
