Amir Khan vs. Chris Algieri full fight video highlights

Check out the full fight video highlights from last night’s PBC on Spike main event between Amir Khan and Chris Algieri.

Another entertaining night of boxing was capped off by a PBC main event between Amir Khan and Chris Algieri. While Khan was a heavy favourite ahead of the bout, it turned out to be a far more competitive affair than many anticipated, which eventually led to an entertaining decision.

Here is a quick recap by Mookie Alexander:

In the end, Khan deserved the decision (117-111, 117-111, 115-113), although the two 117-111 scorecards don't really reflect how closely contested this fight was. Algieri looked a different fighter with his new trainer, and absolutely nothing Khan did tonight that really should make anyone believe he can be in the same competitive field as Floyd Mayweather. The win alone is likely to be enough to actually get him the big fight, but his defensive liabilities were still there, particularly that right hand over the top. Mayweather isn't going to be nearly as aggressive as Algieri, but he's a far better boxer (obviously) and would surely dominate Khan as he's dominated virtually everyone else.
