0

NEW YORK: Britain’s Amir Khan took a unanimous decision victory on Friday (Saturday in Manila) over American Chris Algieri in a welterweight matchup, then called out unbeaten Floyd Mayweather for a world title showdown. Khan improved to 31-3 with his fifth victory in a row, which came by judges’ scores of 117-111, 117-111 and 115-113. Algieri fell to 20-2 with his second defeat in a row, the other coming last November at Macau at the hands of Filipino star Manny Pacquiao—who lost to treble world champion Mayweather in boxing’s richest-ever megafight earlier this month.
