Press Release

Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing presents the third installment of their new series "Boxeo Azteca" televised live on the Azteca America network as undefeated Jr. Welterweight Chris Algieri (11-0 6KO Huntington, NY) takes a big step up in class when he takes on hard hitting Bayan Jargal (15-2-3 10KO Arlington, VA) in the 10 round main Jr. Welterweight main event November 19th, at The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island, NY.

Algieri, whose mother is from Argentina, will be fighting in his hometown of Huntington for only the second time in his career and first time as a main event fighter. In his last fight Algieri disposed of tough Philly fighter Julius Edmonds in 4 rounds on March 17th of this year. Chris has battled numerous hand injuries which has slowed his progress down but now feels his hands are one hundred percent and is raring to climb up the Jr. Welterweight ladder. He faces a tough task on November 19th when he steps into the ring with Jargal.

Jargal, who represented his native Mongolia in the 2003 and 2005 World Championships as an amateur, has been called the Mongolian version of Manny Pacquiao for his relentless style. In his last fight Jargal took on world rated Breidis Prescott, a bout televised as part of ESPN2 "Friday Night Fight" series on April 22nd of this year. Jargal put forth a game effort as he hung with Prescott for the full 10 rounds, having strong moments in the latter part of the fight. Jargal is a hard puncher and is known for his fan friendly style. Bayan has promised to ruin Algieri's homecoming party.

Five additional bouts are planned for the card. The card will be aired on Azteca America with the telecast set to begin at 10pm EST.
