Chris Algieri returns to Oxnard, resumes training with Robert Garcia

RETURNS TO OXNARD TO TRAIN WITH ROBERT GARCIA

June 6, 2012 - New York's undefeated Junior Welterweight sensation, Chris Algieri (14-0, 7 KOs), has returned to Oxnard, Calif., where he will resume training with Robert Garcia at his academy. After a successful outing in his last fight where he scored a third-round knockout against Winston Mathis, Algieri feels working with Garcia prepares him for the elite level of competition.

"Today was my first day back in the gym and it was nice to see everyone," said Algieri. "Brandon Rios, Kelly Pavlik, Cecilio Flores and Robert Garcia welcomed me with open arms. The gym atmosphere alone is worth the trip."

"The sparring I got last time I was here was second to none. Everyone is on a different level out here and it makes for great training. I want to be the best and this is where I need to be if I want to become a world champion. I'm excited to keep improving and show progress in my next fight. It feels good to be back."

Humberto Romero, who co-manages Algieri with Damian Ramirez, said, "When you have a fighter willing to travel across the country to train with the best, it's obvious that you have something special on your hands. Damian and I knew when Chris said he wanted to go out to California and train with Garcia that he was serious about taking his career to the next level. I can't wait to see how he develops out there."

Chris Algieri is anticipating a big announcement from his promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing regarding his next bout. A possible TV date could be in the works. For more information please visit www.chrisalgieri.com.
