Chris Algeri Returns July 20th Against Mike Arnaoutis


Chris Algieri, the “Pride of Huntington,” will fight at the Paramount Saturday, July 20, when Star Boxing’s “Rockin Fights 9” returns with a full card of professional boxing.

The undefeated 16-0 (7 KO) Junior Welterweight will step in the ring with his most experienced opponent to date, Mighty Mike Arnaoutis, who is 24-8-2 (11 KO) and the former USBA Junior Welterweight Champion.


“Boxing is my passion,” said the black belt who turned down a Mixed Martial Arts career to pursue his dream of a boxing world championship. “I’m here because I want to fight.” A graduate of Stony Brook University, Algieri put his medical school studies on hold to pursue the world title.

Standing in Algieri’s way at the wildly popular “Rockin Fights” will be Arnaoutis, a native of Greece now living in Astoria who’s been involved in several notable fights.

Algieri brought down the house at the Paramount in February when he defeated Jersey City prospect Jose Peralta Alejo in a brawl that was broadcast live on NBC’s Fight Night.

“Boxing fans will not want to miss Algieri vs. Arnaoutis at the Paramount,” said Star Boxing’s Joe DeGuardia. “Algieri always brings a great crowd and this time so will his opponent. The Paramount is always great place to watch the fights and have good time.”


Joining Algieri on the “Rockin Fights” card will be Huntington’s Alan Gotay, 5-0 (3 KO) and Anthony “Showtime” Karperis, 4-0-1 (2 KO) of Hicksville. Gotay’s last bout at the Paramount on May 15 was a sensational last round knockout over Bryan Acaba, while Karperis is coming off a Paramount win over Carlos Nieves.

The Saturday night “Rockin Fights 9” card will also feature the professional debuts of Golden Gloves champ Vincenzo D’Angelo of Glen Cove and Wendy Tousant of Huntington.
