Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach is not overly concerned with the biggest weapon in the arsenal of Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs). Algieri has a very good jab, but Roach believes WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) will have very few issues dealing with it. Algieri, the WBO's champion at 140-pounds, will challenge Pacquiao on November 22nd in an HBO Pay-Per-View headliner from Macau, China.

Roach indicates that Ruslan Provodnikov was able to bypass Algieri's jab in the first round, but then abandoned his entire game plan once he dropped Algieri twice.

"Taking away some of his jab is not the hardest thing in the world to do. Manny knows how to do it well. He did it with Oscar [De La Hoya]," Roach told BoxingScene.com.

"Ruslan got past it in the first round, it's not hard to do. He just wasn't consistent with it. He was just looking for a one punch knockout and that's something you can't do with a guy like this. You're not going to hit him with one punch and knock him out. Ruslan had success early and then got carried away with it. I still thought Ruslan won the fight. I didn't think [Algieri] did enough to take the title, but that's my opinion."
