All-Brooklyn World Title Bout Between Daniel Jacobs & Peter Quillin Headlines SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING ® Live on SHOWTIME®
 
BROOKLYN (Oct. 28, 2015) – Former world champion and Long Island-native Chris Algieri (20-2, 8 KOs) returns to Barclays Center in Brooklyn to take on Ecuador’s Erick Bone (16-2, 8 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight bout on Saturday, Dec. 5.
The Algieri vs. Bone fight is promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and will be part of a stacked undercard featuring top regional talent that will be announced in its entirety soon. The undercard supports the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event headlined by the all-Brooklyn battle between middleweight world champion Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) and former world champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KOs).  In the co-feature, WBA Featherweight World Champion Jesus Cuellar (27-1, 21 KOs) will face exciting Puerto Rican contender Jonathan “Polvo” Oquendo(26-4, 16 KOs).
“I am very excited to return to Barclays Center, where I have had some of my best showings,” said Algieri. “On Dec. 5, I am looking forward to having my best performance yet.”
“This is a huge fight for me,” said Bone. “I know Algieri well and I know that he is going to bring it. I am fighting a great fighter and after my performance on Dec. 5, the world will know my name.”
Tickets for the live event start at $50, not including applicable fees, and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.ticketmaster.com,www.barclayscenter.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center.
Algieri rose to fame in June 2014 at Barclays Center when he upset Ruslan Provodnikov for a super lightweight world title. The 31-year-old returns to Brooklyn after dropping a narrow and disputed decision to Amir Khan in May. The former kickboxing champion from Huntington, N.Y., built his boxing record on the strength of his excellent movement and skill with the jab. His victory over Provodnikov earned him a shot at Manny Pacquiao in Nov. 2014, a bout that Algieri lost.  He had previously defeated strong contenders Mike Arnaoutis and Emanuel Taylor on the way to his world title.
The 26-year-old Bone has fought in the U.S. since 2014 and began his career stateside with victories over Francisco Figueroa, Mahonri Montes and Peter Oluoch. Born in Manabi, Ecuador, Bone won the first 12 bouts of his career. Most recently he lost to former world champion Shawn Porter after taking over as a late replacement for Porter’s opponent.
