Chris Algieri Sued By His Ex-Manager For $350,000

According to the New York Post, junior welterweight contender Chris Algieri has been hit with a $350,000 lawsuit from his former manager, Humberto Romero. Algieri is scheduled to challenge WBO 140-pound champion Ruslan Provodnikov in an HBO televised fight next Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

In the legal complaint, filed in Manhattan, Romero says he was fired in February 2013, but claims he was due an extension because Algieri was injured for a period of 18 months. Romero claims the injury layoff would extend his contract with Algieri until October 2014.

Romero is also looking for a percentage of Algieri’s $250,000 purse for the Provodnikov bout.
