Algieri Responds To Roach Chops-Bust

So, Chris Algieri, you beat his guy Ruslan Provodnikov on June 14, showing a lion’s heart enroute to getting the UD12 and winning the WBO junior welter crown. So what do you think of Provodnikov’s trainer, Freddie Roach, who also trains Manny Pacquiao, saying he thinks that some of Manny’s SPARRING PARTNERS are better quality fighters than you?

Here’s what Roach said during a Thursday conference call: “We have had a great start, probably the best start we have ever had and sparring has been going very well – we have over 35 rounds of sparring in so far and we have some great sparring partners (Viktor) Postol the number one contender in the world, Mike Jones who is a big 147-pounder and Stan Martyniouk, from San Francisco.  All the guys are tall and I think some guys are better than our opponent, but we will see very soon.”

Thoughts, Chris?

“OK, let him say that,” said Algieri (20-0 with 8 KOs) to me, from Las Vegas, where he’s knee deep in camp. “What’s the point trying to be made, exactly? I mean, that’s sparring. On fight night, I’m there to win, I’m no partner! I’m a competitor.”

I took it to mean that Dedham Freddie thinks Viktor Postol, especially, who is giving Manny looks in camp, along with Mike Jones and Stan Martyiniouk, is a top-grade pugilist. I communicated as much to Algieri, the 30-year-old Long Islander who today drew raves from promoter Bob Arum, for being a constant and effective media presence on mainstream outlets, like CNBC and such.

“There are plenty of talented fighters who never win championships,” Algieri said, in closing. “Champions arise from intangibles.”

Basically, put that in your pipe and smoke it, Dedham Freddie!

Roach is right. This kid is in way over his head.


-Radam G :

After Da Manny kayos C-Al, C-Al can defend his light welterweight title against Viktor Pistol. And find out how tough Da Manny/3m's sparringmates are. The undefeated, well-skilled, Pistol would kayo him and take his title. If C-Al stays at welterweight, the now well-nourish Mike Jones would put him to sleep. Even the lighter weight Martyiniouk would give C-Al problems. Holla!

Could happen. Then again, a bored dude who gets punched in the head for too many years can imagine all kinds of whacky things. Let?s not forget that bimbubble like this is why Radam exists on this site - big whacky predictions, conspiracy theories, and the occasional Pinoy snack food. In the meantime, C-Al remains the holder of one of the savviest, bravest wins in recent boxing history, never lost a fight, and is going to give us an actual result against Pacquaio soon so we can go back to talking about boxing instead of Radam?s Lambanog blackout dreams.


-Kid Blast :

Dedham Freddie has made more money than most and he came out of the projects in Dedham and he came from a dysfunctional family. Naw, Dedham Freddie usually gets the last laugh and is a master con artist who know how to play mind games with the best. This time, he is putting the finishing touches on College Kid Chris who will be slaughtered like a Kosher Butcher slaughters a chicken. Too much power, too much speed, too much movement, and way too much ring savvy. Looking forward to this one because I am honored to be involved in a major production project associated with it. Let's get it on.

I'm interested in hearing more about your project, Kid Blast.

Hehehehe! Actually, he lost his last fight. And look at the types of pugs who he's undefeated against: eight cadavers -- six of them with none winning records, 10 tomato cans and marshmallows, and two warm bodies, in which he got a BIG gift against one. Sorry, but C-Al is going to pay to the piper. No more freebies. He is going to get slaughtered. Not because of what Radam G says, but because he has been perpetrating a ridiculous FRAUD. His con game is up. No optical illusions. Holla!


-thegreyman :

It was an SD not a UD. One of the results was 117-109. The only meaningful scorecard that night.

Keep your eyes on C-Al, Radam. Stop looking past him. As it is, if Da' Manny concentrates and focuses on Algieri, he will have problems. If he is thinking Postol and $$$May and a bunch of others, he is going to feel as if he's in with all of them on the 22nd. Relax. I sense your blood pressure is going a bit too high. You need a shot of that oub or whatever that awful-sounding stuff you suggested we try, the stuff you said Mike Jones is now devouring. Mmm-mmm. If you want, I'll have Algieri sign a photo and I'll send it to you. -Randy G.

Hehehe! My blood pleasure is 92/54. I'm fine. I'm one of the most relax, grinning dude on the planet. Your homeboy C-Al will not be much of a challenge. Sorry, but you and your other homeboy Doc M-Cola have 'em "High Hopes." C-Al fights low. The whole show, he is going to blow. He moves as if he is stuck in some snow. Maybe he is waiting for another early Christmas gift, you know. It ain't happening in Macau, bro! I sense your Cholesterol and Triglyceride are a bit high. High hoping will have you eating empty-calories celebratory, processed foods. That is junk -- the junk of nutrition. Don't get depressed and holla at any lambanog products like Doc M-Cola is probably doing, though. Hehe! The fixer up for you is a red pepper watermelon drink. Throw into a blender some watermelon chucks, a tablespoon of concetrated black cherry juice, a half of teaspoon of red pepper chrushed and at least 16oz of pure -- unalcoholic -- coconut water. Let it blend, BABBBBEEE! A minute or two will be grand. Then get laaaaaaiiiiidddd back and sip it down. But don't be eating any organic, unsalted almonds with the sipping. Because this drink will clean blockages going to your Johnshun [$??]. And with almonds, you will get a longer stretch and mad bulk that night. You will almost be the man you used to be. Hehehe! Your wifey will go: "Oh, Randal! STOP IT!" Meanwhile: Tell Doc M-Cola that too much lambanog will make him a mess. Get himself some dark chocolate organic eggnog. Holla!

DDV. holla at your Message box. Giggles is bugging me. Holla!

Rad, your diastolic is very low. You might be dehydrated. Please get it checked.


-Radam G :

Rad, your diastolic is very low. You might be dehydrated. Please get it checked.
Hehehe! An in-shape human is amazing. Again, I am near-perfectly fine. Even my body temperature ranges from 94.2 to 96.4 -- not 98.6. Inexperienced medical employees always had to call the top guns when examining me and /or family members like me. "A normal diastolic blood pressure is 80 or less." I am just a lot less. EGFR ranges are 94-140. I'm 84. So the inexperienced health worker would believe as you did. That "might be dehydrated." I'm perfectly watered/liquefied Lab scientists and doktors have called me one of the "super humans and/or amazing" -- no internet jive. Matter of fact, for the sake of science research, I'm in a few studies, where I'm being paid big bucks. My "Common Chemistry Labs" are off the charts with positivities. I'm not being boastful or bragging, but I've never been the norm in body or brain. Hehehe! I have a near-perfect body and brain. I syet you not. No sarcism needed. Holla!


-mortcola :

Rad, you typed 54, not 84. But If you?re solid that?s all that counts. I just want to make sure you?re OK, you?re important here. It?s just that the compulsive punning might suggest delirium due to an electrolyte imbalance, and I don?t like to laugh at the afflicted. But If you?re OK, I?m OK.

Yes, 54 is right for my diastolic. Eighty four is for my EGFR. Which according to the chart's norm should not be less than 94. But what people get mixed up about is that they are talking about averages, mediums and norms, not super. Holla!


-Radam G :

My electrolytes are astounding. So you may laugh away. Sorry, but your homeboy C-Al is going to be Pac-smacked away. In about round four to six, out he will lay [$??]. Hehehe! But you and the Commish keep "High Hopes" alive. Holla!


-stormcentre :

Sometimes I feel like I am on another planet when I drop in on this forum. But then I realise it's OK, cause the Alien is fighting soon.


-Radam G :

My electrolytes are intense. And that's no pretense. You and Commish just keep "High Hopes" alive. Your homeboy will be napping in round five. Da Manny's shots, missiles and nukes are going to be on Empire State C-Al like a Thousand-and-One delirious Killa' bees from a Macau Island's beehive. Holla!

Shots, missiles and nukes? Don't you know that C-Al is gonna' have his finest anti-missile system employed that night, as well as a phenomenal APRS (Antin-Pacquiao Response System). Four weekends away before this place gets renamed. It's gonna' go from being called "Long Island" to being called "Algieri Island." -Randy G.

-Glass Joe :

Roach is right. This kid is in way over his head.
I totally understand why people are giving Algieri no chance, but I think they are not really looking at the match up clearly. Pacquiao is not the same fighter who KO'd Cotto and Hatton. He's not had a KO in five years and has shown evidence of age. He looked pretty good against Brandon Rios, but Algieri is no Rios. He's also no Rod Salka: Algieri has recently fought (and beaten) legit guys, including a win over a very, very tough Ruslan Provodnikov. He's smart, fit, very tough and can move. OK, so he's got no power so he certainly won't KO Pacquiao or even hurt him. But don't discount his boxing ability and toughness. I think this is a legit match up and the result may surprise us all. Brian

I agree... Algieri is mega intellegent and hyper anaroebic in the ring... He will do probably much better than expected. But let's not forget that Paq is sparring with two guy who could get Paq ready to perform at his best even if he were boxing Mayweather.......and that's Jones and Postol, two guys who would probably beat Algieri without much difficulty. Paq is leaving no stone unturned in his preparations. We may see the best Manny yet.

A competitor of Manny's calibre prepares in such a meticulous manner following a well seasoned regime that it's never a surprise that he comes in not off his best. But what really surprises me is that some of the sites most knowledgeable fans, mort and randy amongst others, put so much belief in Algieri that they make him sound the champion and Pacquiao the phase 2 challenger contender. Algieri may have speed in his punches, he may work his feet well and he has a good engine, but he's up against a hurricane on the 22nd. Manny Pacquiao, the 8 weight, 10 world champion is a different breed. Boxing is a sport of levels, and Pacquiao (may he forever remain blessed) occupies the top most rungs of our sport along with a select few others who can truly call themselves masters. No matter how you try cut it, no matter what holes you think you spy, what new training regime youre employing and how many countless hours you spend watching the marquez punch - on the 22nd of November, the embodiment of a hurricane will be facing you. No more talk, no more smiling and no more Mr nice guy. Pacquiao throws punches from every angle, angles that Algieri doesn't know exist in pugilist, he fires them hard he fires them short he fires them long. There isn't a punch Manny won't throw that doesn't come at you like a bullet, either thudding home hundreds of pounds of force against your cranium or whizzing past your head leaving a whoosh in it's wake. Algieri was a nobody before provodnikov, I don't mean the world champion any disrespect when I say that, certainly not in the sport of boxing. He had a good victory of Emmanuel taylor who may or may not have underestimated the Long Islander, and against Provodnikov he went down twice in the first then proceeded to wear his soles rather than his gloves out to find a dubious W. From this has spawned an egolomaniac who loves the sound of his own voice, who plays down the ability of his foe and although claims to have respect for his achievements, says that his talents in the ring won't pose a problem nor threat. Whilst some of you may say well this isn't the same Pacquiao of 4 years ago (our fighter of the decade no less) who was knocking everyone out and punching them to a pulp in the process, who know has been knocked out is failing to get his opponents out before the final bell, to you i say this. Ask Tim Bradley what he thought of Pacquiao, ask Joel Diaz, Brandon rios, Robert garcia, ask Freddie, ask his sparring partners. If you can't ask then find interviews and segments on social media. Pacquiao is no less of what he used to be, as we grow older we improve, our styles adapt. We humans change and nothing that we do continuously for 20 odd years will ever remain constant in style. But that same fire, that same burning desire to win and to fight, the instincts of the warrior inside Manny still burn bright and it will be Chris Algieri who is scolded by it's heat and who will tell the world next what an all time great Manny Pacquiao truly is.

Skibbz... That was good enough to pass the Sunday morning offering plate. Yep, Paq is so fired up I can feel his professional pride burning all the way in Ohio. I didn't think I'd be buying this fight..... But then again that's what I tell myself every time.
