Chris Algieri made life very difficult for Amir Khan with some quality power shots but in the end Khan had little too much for him with his speed and movement. A unanimous decision with all three judges scoring 117-111 for Khan.
Amir Khan knew he was in the fight straight from the round 1 when Algieri relentlessly moved forward and put Khan under pressure. Khans hand speed was always going to be factor and winning a points decision against him is pretty difficult so Chris Algieri seemed to had his tactics spot on for the fight.
He caught Khan almost in every round with good power shots some of them really sting him up but Khans experience and speed got him through the difficult rounds. All three judges scored the fight same with 117-111 to Amir Khan.

Amir Khan needs to up his game against Algieri and score a dominant win over him just like Manny Pacquiao did last november to stand a chance of getting a fight against Mayweather or event Manny Pacquiao later in the year of early 2016. Since his two back to back defeats against Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson several years ago, Amir Khan has been on the road of recovery for quite some time now and has not fought a top notch fighter but still keep mentioning his name alongside the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao which kind of annoy boxing fans but this is his chance to get and impressive win and stake a claim for fighting Mayweather and of course the bigger payday.
