Chris will be fighting Ruslan Provodnikov for the World Title this weekend.
Chris has always been a fighter. Growing up in Huntington, Long Island (New York), Chris played every sport in the book but always found himself gravitating to the fight game.
“I hated winning when I played poorly, I hated losing when I played well; I just wanted to be #1.”
After completing an undefeated amateur career that culminated with a USKBA Northeast Championship, Algieri went on to win both the WKA Super Welterweight World Championship and the ISKA World Welterweight Championship.
“You step through the doors, and it’s right then that the emotion builds. Your name is announced, you touch gloves and then from there … it’s a blink.”
Algieri finished his kickboxing career undefeated and as the undisputed world champion in two weight divisions and two different organizations.
Never one to settle, Algieri decided it was time to move on to a new arena and transitioned his skills to Professional Boxing. Algieri has since then dominated the field, earning an unblemished record of 19-0 and a world title shot at the Barclay’s Center.
There is no more complete fighter, inside or outside the ring, than Chris Algieri. His time is now and there is nothing that will prevent him from reaching his ultimate goal: To become World Champion.
But Chris isn’t a just a fighter. He graduated from Stony Brook University with a Bachelors of Science (B.S.) degree in Healthcare Science. After earning his undergraduate degree, he went on to receive his Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition (M.S.) at New York Institute of Technology.
Chris is a Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN) by the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) and a NESTA Certified Fitness Nutrition Coach.
