Jr welterweight contender Chris Algieri (16-0, 7 KOs) won a harder than anticipated 10-round unanimous decision against “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (24-9-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Algieri was outworked early on and had some difficulty with Arnaoutis’ southpaw style. But as the bout progressed, Algieri became more active, busting up Arnaoutis’ nose before cutting Arnaoutis on the right eyebrow in the eighth round. Scores were 99-91 and 98-92 (twice) for the still unbeaten Algieri.
