Highlights

  • - Chris Algieri began the fight with a bang, buzzing Amir Khan in Round 1.

  • - In a back-and-forth fight with more action than some might have expected, Khan won a unanimous decision.

Amir Khan used his superior speed to continually frustrate Chris Algieri over 12 rounds.

Chris Algieri didn’t fight like the 10-1 underdog he was heading into his showdown with Amir Khan, acquitting himself well by pressing the action throughout the bout.

Nevertheless, Algieri could only land one punch at a time much of the night, as he was never able to pin Khan down and hit him with combinations.

For his part, Khan’s vaunted hand speed was on display, but in only places, such as in Round 10, when he blitzed Algieri with combinations.

In the end, it was enough for him to earn a victory by unanimous decision.
