Tim Lane, the trainer of 140lb champion Chris Algieri, has no doubts his fighter can pull off a shock victory over Manny Pacquiao on November 22 and add another big scalp to his record.
Algieri, 30, has already defeat world-renowned puncher Ruslan Provodnikov on his way to sealing a clash with the ‘Pacman’ and Lane believes another jaw-dropping performance is on the cards in Macau.
“Over the past 14 years I have trained and watched Chris become a Master of the Art of Boxing,” said Lane.
“His hard work ethic, discipline and dedication are second to none. Chris has been in the gym after only one week off from his last bout with New York trainers Keith Trimble, Dr. Mike Camp and Tony Ricci who have kept him in great shape through the years and continue to help him get stronger and faster between and during all camps.
“Training camp will officially start in late September in New York and finish in Las Vegas before leaving for China. Let it be known, there is a new era in the world of boxing and on November 22, Chris Algieri will once again shock the world and become the new WBO welterweight champion!”
Pacquiao is back at the top of his game following his one-sided revenge win over Tim Bradley earlier this year and Algieri would have to fight way above any level he has done before to put another dent in the Filipino Congressman’s record.
