Chris Algieri (19-0, 8 KOs) is ready for Ruslan Provodnikov, the biggest fight and opportunity in his career as a boxer yet.
Different principles have paved a path of triumph for the 30-year-old Algieri. In February, facing his toughest challenge yet, he picked Emmanuel Taylor and took him apart en route to a unanimous decision. That victory has merited him a shot at Provodnikov's title in his first headlining bout on HBO.
HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: RUSLAN PROVODNIKOV VS. CHRIS ALGIERI AND DEMETRIUS ANDRADE VS. BRIAN ROSE is seen SATURDAY, JUNE 14 at 10:00 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, exclusively on HBO.
