Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions, who co-promotes WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs), has confirmed to that a deal was reached with Bob Arum of Top Rank for his boxer to challenge Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) for the WBO welterweight crown on November 22nd at the Venetian in Macau, China. HBO Pay-Per-View will carry the fight.

Algieri became a frontrunner for Pacquiao when he scored an unexpected twelve round split decision victory over the heavily favored Ruslan Provodnikov last month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Against Provodnikov, Algieri went down twice in the first and his right eye was rapidly swelling shut by the midway point, but he slowly found a rhythm and used his boxing ability to keep the hard punching Siberian at bay. Against Pacquiao, Algieri will once again play the role of heavy underdog.

Initially, Algieri had issues with amount of money being offered for the fight (or at least his split of the overall package), reportedly around $1.5 million dollars. Those issues have been worked out, confirms Pelullo, who spent most of his Tuesday finalizing the deal in New York with co-promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing and Algieri.

As part of his deal with DeGuardia for the Provodnikov bout, Pelullo received three promotional options on Algieri. Pelullo and DeGuardia also co-promote WBO junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade.

"Everything is a go. The financial end has been worked out. Chris got more than he wanted. Everything is a go. We made the deal with Arum. We made the deal with Chris. On November 22nd, Chris Algieri is going to challenge Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight championship. All of the paperwork will be signed in the next couple of days, but we agreed on everything with Arum. Everthing is a go," Pelullo told 

"Joe did a great job with this kid and because of our personal relationship, and our relationship with Andrade, [Algieri] got a fight with Ruslan ahead of other people. Chris Algieri is going to do just fine against Manny Pacquiao. He is going to give him the same trouble that he gave to Ruslan Provodnikov. I think the fight is going to be life and death because of the style [of Algieri]."

Arum was delighted that Algieri was able to reach a deal with is promoters.

“They sweetened the deal for him. I offered an amount that I thought was fair and the question was how they were going to divide it up,” Arum said.

A source told BoxingScene that a multi-country press tour is already being worked out for the last week of August, and there will be press conferences in China and the United States.

pacquiao decision, pac is not knocking anyone out anymore lol algieri will be on his backfoot all night. pac UD 118-110 ,, in a relatively boring fight where pac is chasing him landing the meaningful shots where algeiri just pumping a jab and moving but not landing anything hard and overall in...

a theory... i'm going to wait till i see the over/under odds on this fight. then bet accordingly. i figure if pac bets on himself and he sees its favored for him to win early, then he'll play the odds and bet that he will win late. and make more money on higher odds. just a theory. :angel:

[QUOTE=WWEwhcHHHsuKJar]if pac doesnt stop algeri in the early rounds then he should no longer be considered an elite[/QUOTE] I think I sort of agree with this. Maybe not in the early rounds since Pacquiao's power seems to have faded some, however, I do expect him to stop him somewhere between th...
