One’s out to prove that he belongs in the upper echelon of the sport. The other is looking to demonstrate that he’s not leaving said echelon any time soon.
When Amir Khan and Chris Algieri clash on May 29 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, which will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, they will be barreling down the same road with different destinations in mind.
For the former, it’s to get another step closer to the kind of mega-fight that he’s long been pursuing.
For the latter, it’s for a measure of redemption after his six-knockdown loss to Manny Pacquiao last November.
In the latest episode of Lights Out, which premieres on Spike TV at 11 p.m. Friday, get an inside look at Khan and Algieri as they prepare to fight not just each other, but for their place at the top of boxing’s pecking order.
