Joe DeGuardia Says It’s “Deja Vu All Over Again” for Chris Algieri

For Release: Immediate

New York, May 21-To quote a Yogi Berra-ism, Bronx-based promoter Joe DeGuardia says it will be “deja vu all over again” when Star Boxing’s, Chris Algieri, squares off against Amir Khan at the Barclays Center on Friday night, May 29. In other words, the underdog Algieri will pull off the upset just as he did against Ruslan Provodnikov last year at the same Brooklyn venue.

“I’m thrilled to be back at the Barclays Center with Chris Algieri, which is the same arena where he shocked the world winning the World Championship with his upset over Ruslan Provodnikov,” said DeGuardia.  “Now, we are here again, in the same underdog position, against Amir Khan.  Once again I fully expect Chris to walk out of the Barclays Center ring with his hand raised in victory.”

The Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs) vs. Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) 12-round welterweight affair will headline the Premier Boxing Champions series card from Barclays on Spike TV, air time is at 9:00 PM.

Star Boxing’s 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 the scene of his greatest triumph on May 29 to take on the British superstar Khan. The former kickboxing champion from Huntington, New York, built his undefeated 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 ultimately lost. He had previously defeated strong contenders Mike Arnaoutis and Emanuel Taylor on the way to his world title.
