These two warriors first met on July 18th at The Paramount, aired live as part of the ESPN “Friday Night Fight” series, and waged a high pitched battle that was prematurely stopped due to a severe eye injury by Jargal.

The success of Chris Algieri, who headlined numerous times at The Paramount has only increased the great attention to the venue as the breeding ground of Champions and a place to watch great fights, join a lively and exciting crowd and be part of the tradition of sold out thrilling events.
The co-feature will be The Paramount debut of Mastic Beach Light Heavyweight Joe “The Irish Bomber” Smith Jr., 16-1 13KO’s, taking on dangerous veteran Maxell Taylor, 18-9-1 8KO’s, Baltimore, MD, in an 8 round Light Heavyweight contest.
