On Saturday night, former junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri defeated a game Erick Bone over the course of ten hard-fought rounds inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. With the win, Aglieri improves to 21-1 with eight knockouts and should be in line for a big fight in 2016, while Bone drops to 16-3 with eight knockouts.

Algieri was coming off of back-to-back defeats to Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan and knew he needed to make a statement against his Ecuadorian foe. A knockdown in the eighth round helped seal the deal for Algieri, as the Huntington, New York native prevailed by scores of 97-92 twice and 95-94.

Algieri is now training under esteemed trainer John David Jackson and has been showing much improvement with his jump to the welterweight ranks. He gave a great effort against Khan this past May and came up just a little short, but made sure to leave no stone left unturned vs. Bone.

“Victory number 21!” Algieri exclaimed following his victory. “Thank you to everyone for their support. I had a very tough and well prepared opponent, in Erick BonĂ©, in front of me and knew that I needed to be in top shape. I trained and fought hard as always.”
