Chris Algieri Eager To Fight, Aims To Win Another World Title

By Radio Rahim

New York City - Former WBO welterweight champion Chris Algieri (21-3, 8 KOs), 33 years old, is eager to get back in the mix for another world title run.

Algieri has been out of the ring since getting stopped in five rounds last April when he faced undefeated Olympian Errol Spence at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The New York fighter has been busy lately, working as a nutritionist and adviser to Daniel Jacobs, who challenges IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Algieri burst on the scene in June 2014, when as a heavy underdog got off the floor to win a twelve round split decision over Ruslan Provodnikov. It was one of the biggest upsets of that entire year.

That victory allowed him to land a lucrative fight with Manny Pacquiao that November in Macau. He was dropped six times, but still made it to the final bell to lose a decision.

He came right back the following May in another major fight, against Amir Khan at Barclays Center. The British boxer had all he could handle in winning a unanimous decision. Algieri bounced back that December, also at Barclays, to win a decision over the tough Erick Bone.

After his assignment this weekend, as part of Team Jacobs, he wants to get back in the ring. Algieri started training a few fights ago with veteran John David Jackson, who is helping the boxer develop his power and combination punching.

"I need to get right back in the mix. I need to get some wins under my belt, to get some momentum, get things rolling again and work towards getting another world title. If I didn't think that I could be world champion again, I wouldn't box again," Algieri told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=rrayvez;17503919]Yeah, khan outboxed him for 2 whole rounds before getting punched out of his shoes. As far as a Thurman schooling, not sure what schooling you saw. I saw Thurman take an early lead by fighting aggressively and then go…

[QUOTE=revelated;17503138]Not a "couple" of good shots. Besides, all you're doing is trying to punish Thurman for rounds 10-12. Ignoring rounds 1-8 where Garcia was treated like a sparring partner. Garcia is only good when he can counter you. Khan was…
