Chris Algieri: I will win at all cost, that’s what this is about, winning at all cost!

By Jerry Glick
Photos: Peter Frutkoff/PeterFrutkoff.com

When they announce the main event this Friday in the ring at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, it will be an opportunity for the once beaten, former WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri to demonstrate his confidence. Algieri, who is coming off a loss against Manny Pacquiao, will be going against the highly regarded Amir Khan, another former 140 pound champion, for Khan’s WBC Silver welterweight title. Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs) suffered his first defeat in his last fight (November 23, 2014) when he challenged the PacMan for his WBO welterweight belt. Pacquiao scored six knockdowns and a lopsided decision over Algieri however “The Pride of Huntington” never lost his confidence!

He believes that he learned things in his defeat with Pacman.

Did he come out a better fighter?

“Absolutely,” he responded. “As I said in the post fight press conference, I’m a confident guy. To tell the truth, I am now more confident than ever. Once you’ve been in with the best, everyone else, is just everyone else.” (more…)

Brook: Gavin is getting nowhere near my belt

Kell Brook defends his IBF World Welterweight title against Frankie Gavin on Saturday night at The O2 in London and the champion has no intention of relinquishing his status in boxing’s money-division. Brook demolished his mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan in devastating fashion in March in his hometown of Sheffield in a long-awaited return to the ring. The Special One had to wait over seven months for that first defense of the belt he ripped from Shawn Porter in August after a horrific stabbing incident on holiday threatened his life and career. Brook made a full recovery and shone on his comeback and now he faces former world amateur champion Gavin in his second defense – and Brook is in no mood to see his reign end. Frankie is getting nowhere near my belt,” said Brook. “He can look at it, I might even let him touch it, but he’s not taking it from me. It’s my belt, it took me a long time to get it and there’s no way he’s getting it. I’ve done the hard work and now it’s time to have fun. (more…)

Tanaka to make history in fifth pro bout

Report and Photo by Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten 19-year-old Japanese prospect Kosei Tanaka (4-0, 2 KOs) will attempt to make history by winning the vacant WBO 105-pound belt against more experienced Mexican Julian Yedras (24-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday in Nagoya, Japan. The current Japanese record to win a world throne in a shortest career is held by WBO junior bantam ruler Naoya Inoue who acquired it in his sixth pro outing last December.

Tanaka, formerly a national high school champion, acquired the OPBF minimum belt–in his fourth pro bout–by halting undefeated defending titlist Ryuji Hara, then ranked #2 by the WBO, last October. Tanaka, as an amateur, had a grudge rival named Takuma Inoue, the younger brother of the aforementioned Naoya, but Tanaka scored three victories to two for Takuma in their five amateur competitions. Takuma Inoue entered the world ratings thanks to his upset triumph over Thailand’s Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr. by a lopsided decision in his second pro bout. Takuma, 19, will dispute the vacant OPBF super-fly belt against Filipino Mark Anthony Gerald on July 6. But this is a story on Tanaka, not Takuma. (more…)

Seconds Out Promotions inks Oliveira

Nearly 18 months after suffering his only loss against Juergen Braehmer in a WBA title fight, former light heavyweight world title challenger Marcus Oliveira (25-1-1, 20 KOs) is finally taking steps to return to the ring. The 36-year-old Oliviera has signed with Tony Grygelko’s Minneapolis-based Seconds Out Promotions. The promotional agreement is a reunion of sorts, as Grygelko was Oliveira’s promoter for much of his early professional career.

“I used to promote Marcus, prior to him signing with Don King, and it’s truly an honor to be able to promote him again and help position him for another world title shot,” said Tony Grygelko. “It seems that with his previous promoter not actively seeking fights, and his loss to Jurgen Brähmer, that Marcus has been written off, but the truth is he is extremely focused and has a burning desire to show all his fans that he has the talent to win a World Championship! He plans to shake off some ring rust off with a couple fights and then he’ll be looking to go after some of the big names in the division, such as Andrezj Fonfara, Sergey Kovalev, Bernard Hopkins, and a rematch with Braehmer.” (more…)

Khan-Algieri press conference quotes

Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

Fight week activities for Premier Boxing Champions on Spike continued Wednesday as fighters participated in the final press conference and media workouts at Barclays Center before they enter the ring on Friday. Here is what the participants had to say Wednesday:

Amir Khan: “I really believe that I have the movement, the skills and the technique to beat Chris Algieri and look spectacular doing it. Algieri has been in the ring with big names before so we know that’s not going to scare him and he won’t get nervous. I’m going to be ready for anything he brings to the table. This is going to be an entertaining fight because of our styles. We both like to throw a lot of punches and there will be a lot of movement. This will be a more skillful fight and I think the fans will enjoy what they see.

“Virgil Hunter has been great for me as a fighter and he’s helped me really understand the sport of boxing. I’ve worked on my technique and my defense and really just everything. Training camp for me has been really good. I’m focused on my opponent and I’m not going to make any mistakes. It’s going to be a great performance from me on Friday.”

Chris Algieri: “This is going to be a great fight with two fast-paced boxers. It’s going to be very exciting for everyone watching. Working down in Florida with John David Jackson really refreshed a lot of things in boxing for me. I got to see new things and try new things. I learned a lot. The only thing that matters is proving something to myself and I do feel like I have to prove something. I wasn’t happy with my last performance at all. I know I belong here at the elite level and it’s time for me to prove it.

“I like to challenge myself and this is a great opportunity. I’m ready for this, I will challenge anybody in the welterweight division.”

The New Kronk Gym opens

After countless stops and starts, the new Kronk has finally opened. The latest incarnation (#4) of the world renowned boxing gym had an official opening on Memorial Day amid folks in a celebratory mood made notable by Kronk’s most famous boxer, multiple champion Thomas Hearns.

Located in the basement of the Body of Christ International Church on Metteal, the west side gym is notably larger than the original on Junction and McGraw. The success of the original Kronk was singularly due neither to Hearns nor manager-trainer Emanuel Steward; rather, it was due to a combination of the two. One without the other would have meant obscurity for both, just as Joe Louis would have never made it out of Detroit had it not been for John Roxborough and the team he assembled. (more…)
