CHRIS ALGIERI HEADLINES ON LONG ISLAND SATURDAY NIGHT

BRONX, NY (March 28, 2012) “The Fighting Pride of Huntington, Long Island”, Chris Algieri has returned home to headline ROCKIN’ FIGHTS 3, a world class professional boxing card presented by Star Boxing this Saturday night, March 31st at The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island.
 
The undefeated Algieri, 13-0-0 (6KO’s), will battle Rochester, New York’s Winston Mathis, 7-4-1 (2KO’s), in the junior welterweight main event.
 
Although future plans for Algieri include medical school as well as pursuing a world title, he recently returned from his first training camp, joining numerous world champions and contenders in Oxnard, California, under the watchful eye of noted trainer and former lightweight world champion Robert Garcia.
 
“I went for three weeks and the training was terrific. It seemed like the whole gym had fights coming up this Saturday as do I so we were all on the same schedule” said Algieri.
 
“The gym has a very electric atmosphere. Most of my sparring came against Brandon Rios and Rolando Reyes. Training alongside world-class fighters like Rios and Kelly Pavlik was a great experience. Kelly and I worked out together and ran every morning and he really pushed me.”
 
About returning to Oxnard, Algieri stated, “Next time I’ll go back for a longer period. Although Robert won’t be in my corner, his guidance while training out there was a perfect compliment to my trainers, Keith Trimble and Tim Lane.”
 
In regards to fighting at The Paramount for the third straight fight and facing Mathis, Algieri said, “The Paramount is perfect, I’ve been home for just a couple days and my phone hasn’t stopped ringing with people wanting to buy tickets. We’ve sold it out the last two times and should again this Saturday night.”
 
“I’ve seen some tapes of Mathis’ fights. He’s an aggressive boxer who I’m sure is coming to win. But my team has put together a game plan and it’s my job to execute it.”
 
The Algieri/Mathis bout headlines the sensational seven bout ROCKIN’ FIGHTS 3 card.
