Chris Algeri: My Goal is To Be The Best Jr. Welterweight in The World


Bronx, NY (July 20, 2013) Undefeated junior welterweight contender Chris Algieri returns to action this Saturday night, JULY 20 at The Paramount in his hometown of Huntington, New York.


Regarded as ‘The Fighting Pride of Huntington”, Algieri will face off against former champion Mike Arnaoutis in the main event of Star Boxing’s “Rockin Fights 9″ event.


Speaking after one of his last training sessions prior to the fight Algieri touched on a number of topics including his most recent victory, a ten round unanimous decision over Jose Peralta on FEBRUARY 23.


‘The win over Jose Peralta was my biggest in many ways. He was my toughest opponent and it was broadcast on NBC. SN where I had the opportunity to show all the different aspects of my game to a larger audience. I went ten rounds against a real tough fighter, he brought the fight to me and I felt great getting the win.”


“As far as Arnaoutis, I’ve obviously seen him fight numerous times. He’s very experienced but I’m confident that no matter what he does I’ll be ready for. It’s a battle of my ring intelligence versus his experience.”


About the 140-pound division, Algieri was quick to point comment, “There’s no one specific I want to fight but I’m very familiar with the landscape and I’m confident I can compete with anyone in the division. My goal is to be the best junior welterweight in the world and I want the opportunity to prove that I am.”


“Sparring for this fight was fantastic, I worked with Luis Collazo quite a bit, it was a terrific camp and I’m ready to fight.”


When asked about his walk-in music, Algieri stated, “Don’t Sweat The Technique by Eric B and Rakim, as always.”
