    Somebody in Reddit just leaked it. Venue will be at Barclays center.

    This would make it the 2nd biggest PBC card ever besides their first one in NBC.

    I know its competing with a stacked UFC 209, but if this card does bad ratings, I dont think boxing is ready for American Broadcast TV

    Tough fight for Algieri considering he is 1-3 in his last 4. Should be good though.

    Wasn't Algeri moving back to kickboxing?

    They're about the same level. Good fight for both. One stays relevant while the other one fades

    I've been saying this is a fun fight since mid-2015. Maybe Al Haymon is reading my posts?

    if it wasn't for power the same level. I think Berto is a step ahead. don't judge his loss vs soto karass he had one arm since early on.
    I think algerei should fight someone like malignaggi next

    Algeiri-Malinaggi would be a interesting clash of styles for hardcore fans. Both former World Champions, solid scrap

    What the hell is he fighting in? Is that a boxing match without a ring?

    The Olympics were smart piggy backing of Errols Spences great ratings on NBC.
    How is it not ready?
