He was also granted a wild card nomination to compete in the High School National Championships, but Algieri was unable to participate due to a knee injury. Algieri spent three seasons as assistant coach to the St. Anthony's Friar Wrestling team after high school. Algieri attended Stony Brook University and honed his athletic skills to Full-Contact Kickboxing. Under Tim "Bring the Pain" Lane's watchful eye of Mauro, he began sparring and training. Algieri, 29, decided to turn professional after an undefeated amateur career that culminated in a USKBA Northeast Championship.

Kickboxing career

Algieri won the US Northeast Championship as an amateur, defeating Kyle Murray. Algieri later became a professional and won the International Sport Karate Association Welterweight and World Kickboxing Association Super Welterweight Championships, a 20–0 record as a world kickboxing champion. He played in the World Combat League before retiring to become a professional boxer.

Professional boxing career

Algieri became a professional in 2008 and put together a record of 18–0 with eight knockouts. In the majority of fights, he switched between light welterweight and welterweight. At the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York, Algieri defeated Emmanuel Taylor, an IBF number four ranked contender, in a unanimous ten-round vote on February 14, 2014, placing the ten-round winner in the world rankings.

Algieri had won over top prospect Jose Jo, the son of former United States Boxing Association (USBA), before the tournament, and he defeated Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing hired him.

Algieri had the opportunity of a lifetime on June 14, 2014 as he met and defeated Ruslan Provodnikov, the recently crowned WBO junior welterweight champion, headlining on HBO's "Boxing After Dark" card in Brooklyn, New York. Provodnikov was seen as a warm-up fight early on Algieri, who appeared to have been down and injured twice, but it was far from over. Algieri fought back and settled for the remainder of the fight, avoiding his Russian counterparts' big looping shots. Algieri took the first 12 rounds of the WBO, and the current WBO junior welterweight champion was crowned by a split decision. Algieri claimed his first money at the time, $100,000 for the bout. 288 of 993 punches (29%), 177 of 427 (41%) power shots, Algieri landing 288 of 993 (49%). Provodnikov produced 205 of his 776 punches (26%), which included 164 of 434 power shots (38%). Many television networks had Provodnikov winning wide or Algieri winning a close contest. The show attracted record audiences for Algieri's debut on HBO, averaging 1.046 million viewers and peaking at 1.1 million viewers.

Algieri was given a big shot in fighting legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao in Macau on November 23, 2014, in Algieri's first fight outside of New York, after proving himself in the Provodnikov fight. At 140, Algieri was booted out of his belt as a result of WBO rules. A fighter of their own will only hold belts in one division at a time. Algieri was a strong underdog, and Pacquiao knocked Algieri down six times and made him tumble repeatedly en route to defeating him by a one-sided unanimous decision, snapping Algieri's undefeated streak.

Amir Khan revealed that he had agreed to a welterweight fight with Algieri in New York on May 3, 2015. The match was later fought on April 15, and then moved to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on May 29. Many people think going off the Pacquiao loss was a good thing for Khan. But Algieri, his new manager, John David Jackson, hatched a fight strategy to be more offensive and apply pressure in the match, even though he normally fights on the outside with a thick jab. He weighed more than Khan, and many commentators expressed how much Algieri had improved since the Pacquiao fight and that he looked the most fit and healthy of the two fighters. Algieri was able to get Khan backing up quickly and was unable to land his quick combinations. Algieri, a man who is not well known as a puncher, was able to shock Khan early in the evening, and Algieri pursued Khan the entire night, scoring big punches in every round and ending the night strongly. Khan advanced to win the tournament after 12 rounds of boxing, with many predicting him to win a large number of rounds in the last ten seconds as he was able to steal many of the rounds in the last ten seconds. Algieri, on the other hand, believed he had won the fight in fact. Khan made $1.5 million while Algieri earned $500,000. The battle, which took place on Spike, attracted 1 million viewers and hit 1.2 million.

Algieri defeated Ecuadorian Erick Bone (16–2, 8 KOs) in the 8th round, winning by unanimous decision on December 5, 2015. Bone was coming off a 5th-round knockout loss to Shawn Porter.

On February 23, 2016, Algieri will face welterweights hottest prospects, Errol Spence Jr. (19-0, 16 KOs), against opponents. Both Algieri, who had to resurrect himself in the division after losing to Khan and Pacquiao, was crucial to Spence as a rising star fighting a former champion. Spence dominated the competition with jabs in center ring and won every round. Algieri was able to strike both land jabs and counter, and he did a good job. In the fourth round and twice in the fifth round, Algieri was disqualified twice. Spence brought him to a halt. In round 5, the time of stoppage was 0:48. It was the first time Algieri had been barred within the distance. Algieri received a $325,000 purse, despite being dissatisfied. Spence received $225,000.

Algieri, who had been in the ring for about two-and-a-half years, mainly working as a nutritionist for several boxers, announced on October 30, 2018. Algieri, a poster boy for The Paramount Theatre, appeared in eight straight fights there between 2011 and 2014. Algieri re-signed with former promoter Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing. It was announced that he would face Angel Hernandez (14-11–2, 9 KOs), but that a catchweight was not confirmed. Algieri defeated Hernandez after ten rounds by unanimous decision in front of a sold-out crowd. Algieri took over from the opening bell using a high work rate. For the first time under Andre Rozier's leadership, Algieri demonstrated a high hand speed. Hernandez attempted to advance forward, but he was unable to keep up with Algieri's boxing skills. The match was scored 100–90, 100–90, and 99–91 for Algieri after ten rounds.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn had been announced in early December 2018 that he was aiming to face WBO light welterweight champion Maurice Hooker (25-0-1, 19 KOs) with more recognizable opponents in 2019. On his January 18, 2019 DAZN card, Hearn planned for Algieri and Jorge Linares to fight in separate bouts. Boxing Scene announced Algieri would face Danny Gonzalez, 28, (17–1–1, 7 KOs), who was on a 3-fight winning streak after losing his sole battle earlier this month. The former sparring partners, Gonzalez and Algieri, were former sparring partners. The card will be held at the Hulu Theater in New York City. Algieri defeated Gonzalez after a unanimous decision after ten rounds in what was considered a close match. The three judges rated the match 98–92, 97–93, and 96–94 in favor of Algieri. The decision was met with boos from the audience, who felt that the numbers did not reflect the actual battle. Algieri launched the fight with his jab, holding Gonzalez at a distance, but Gonzalez came through and caused a cut under Algieri's left eye. Gonzalez tried to pile on pressure by seeing this as encouragement, but he was only able to land no more than two shots at a time. Gonzalez managed to trap Algieri in round 10, but no clean shots were fired until Algieri was able to break free. Algieri said, "I am my biggest critic, and this wasn't my best work," he told DAZN. I won the game and am moving forward [...] I was a little late today. You go back to the drawing board and hope to return healthier.

On May 3, 2019, it was announced that Algieri would face British boxer Tommy Coyle (25–4, 12 KOs) on the Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. at Madison Square Garden in New York. Algieri said a victory over Coyle would bring him one step closer to a new world championship challenge. “I'd like to thank my entire team for making this possible and for their complete support of my quest to become a world champion,” Algieri said, adding that he did not lose the belt in the wrestling.


Conor Benn 'more than' holding his own vs bigger sparring partners ahead of Chris Eubank Jr clash, October 4, 2022
EXCLUSIVE: Mike Costello (inset) has seen Conor Benn (top left) in sparring, heard whispers of 'The Destroyer's pre-fight form, and claims that the difference between the 26-year-old and Chis Eubank Jr. (right) will not be so apparent in their 157lb catchweight clash, which may not be so pronounced. Benn is forgoing height, reach, body, and knowledge as he prepares to become the first Benn to win over a Eubank after his legendary father, who suffered only a loss and a draw against Snr in the early '90s double-header.
