The Barbershop – November 25th, 2014

By Allan Scotto -

Happy Tuesday fans!


Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute; scroll down and leave your comment below



Now on to today’s question(s):


Well, last Saturday, Manny Pacqiuao put an end to the Cinderella story of Chris Algieri, dropping him 6 times, although in fact, one or two of the knockdowns were slips. Not that it mattered, Algieri was never really in the fight. The buzz really is about Algieri’s corner people, who appeared to have come up with a plan to give away the first four rounds, and then Tim Lane, Algieri’s trainer telling Chris, “this is where we wanted to be” round after disappointing round and then offering some bizarre comment to Max Kellerman, “I’m going to let him out of his cage soon” after the fight was completely out of reach. So, does Algieri stay loyal to his corner people or does he lose them to find a more experienced trainer?


You pay the bills fans, so what do YOU think?


And don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius/XM Sports Zone Channel 92.


We’ll discuss the “Barbershop” question of the week and anything boxing-related you’d like to share or talk about.


The show runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., ET, and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.


We look forward to hearing from you!
