Recommended Posts

BRONX, NEW YORK (January 29, 2012) On Saturday night, January 28th at the Paramount in Huntington, Long Island, junior welterweight prospect Chris Algieri stayed undefeated at Star Boxing's ROCKIN' FIGHTS with an eight round decision over Atlanta's Curtis Smith in front of a sold out crowd of hometown fans.


Displaying excellent boxing skills throughout the fight with a piston like jab and crunching body shots, coupled with devastating overhand right hands, Algieri had the fans on their feet from the opening bell as he dominated the game Smith by scores of 80 x 72 (twice) and 78-74.


The victory raised Algieri's record to 13-0 (6KO's), while Smith moved to 10-6 (5KO's).


Said Star Boxing President Joe DeGuardia, "Chris gained some good experience tonight, and he capped off a fantastic card. This was our second straight sold out event at the Paramount and we'll definitely be back. From top to bottom the fights were great and that's our commitment to the fans at each of our shows."


"I am pleased that the fans had such a terrific night and they saw evenly matched bouts featuring the area's finest prospects and newcomers. We are excited to come back to the Paramount in the near future."


In the co-main, Bronx's Issouf Kinda also stayed undefeated with an eight round decision over Angel Rios in an entertaining cross-town junior welterweight showdown. The win improved the 23 year old Kinda's record to 12-0-0 (5KO's), while valiant Rios headed to 9-10 (6KO's). Scores were 79-73 (twice) and 78-73.
