This guy ("the hands of Stony Brook") is a walking billboard for SBU. I hope he keeps winning titles. Also like that he's a boxer with smarts.

Talk about putting SBU on the map sports-wise!!  If Algieri can get a high profile date with Pacquaio (one of the most revered fighters on the sport), especially if he can actually beat him, WOW!!! Read this:

It's funny, I've been getting Algieri fighting updates for years or at least since his kickboxing at Sports Plus (now LA Fitness) off 347 in Stony Brook., but I never knew he was a Stony Brook alum. Seems like a good dude. Happy for him and hope he gets that Pacquiao fight.

Stony Brook got some good press on HBO. Ahead of next week's Chris Algieri/Manny Pacquiao championship fight, HBO is running a preview show. Algieri wore his red Stony Brook tee and discussed his Stony Brook experience. The Homecoming game was prominently featured...I even caught a glimpse of me and gf in the stands. I don't think Chris has much of a chance against Pacquiao, but if he wins then he certainly merits a boxing forum on this site

It's a pricey PPV at $60 and I don't think Algieri has much of a chance (it's akin to SB men's hoops playing Duke), but he's getting a seven figure purse from the fight
