January 16, 2012 – Huntington, New York – Star Boxing’s light welterweight sensation, Chris Algieri (12-0, 6 KO’s) looks to remain undefeated when he returns to the ring, January 28, 2010 against Atlanta’s Curtis Smith (10-5, 5 KO’s). The fight takes place in Algieri’s hometown at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York.
When asked about his training camp Algieri stated, “Training camp has been fantastic. I’ve been sparring with Ajose Olusegun (30-0, 14 KO’s) who’s one of the best fighters in the world. He’s a southpaw just like Smith so I couldn’t ask for a better sparring partner. My trainer Keith Trimble has come up with a few different game plans being that we don’t know too much about Smith. Come fight night I’m going to listen to my corner and execute those game plans. We are about two weeks away from fight night and I’m feeling great.”
A sellout crowd is expected when Algieri faces Smith in his hometown of Huntington, New York. The rising star Algieri continued, “The Paramount Theater is right in my back yard and it was a great success when I fought there last time. Joe DeGuardia is a great promoter and I’m please with his decision to bring me back to Huntington. I’m looking to put on a great show for my fans who’ll be there supporting me.”
