Algieri of nearby Huntington, Long Island is ranked number thirteen by the WBO.  He will be making his 1st attempt at a world title and earned this opportunity with wins over Bayan Jargal (15-2-3), Jose Peralta (10-1) and Emanuel Taylor (17-1).

The first press conference will take place at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 15th at The Nassau Coliseum to formally announce the fight.
  
The very next day at 1 PM, Provodnikov &  Algieri will be at Tatiana Restaurant / Nightclub in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn.
