Light-welterweight World champion (WBO) in June 2014, thanks to his victory over Russian Provodnikov, Chris Algieri (21-3) then tried his luck in the welterweight division.
Last February, the US champion announced that he was moving back down to the 140 pounds division after 3 losses over 4 fights, 2 of them against… Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan (!).
Member of the Daniel Jacobs’ Team for his fight against Golovkin mid-March, Chris Algieri trained very hard meanwhile. He is ready to fight !
