The enclosed picture is photographic proof of what happens to Chris Algieri’s face when he hasn’t done his daily avocado treatments, presumably (via).

This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor welcome to the show Brin-Jonathan Butler, author, filmmaker and BWAA member. Some specific attention will likely be paid to Mr. Butler’s interview with Mike Tyson, and his book about Guillermo Rigondeaux.
Because the calendar demands it of us, we hope to cover the following: the entire Pacquiao-Algieri HBO pay-per-view card, which also features Jessie Vargas vs. Antonio DeMarco, and Vasyl Lomachenko and Zou Shiming in separate bouts, the semi-surprising Wladimir Klitschko vs. Kubrat Pulev clash, Nathan Cleverly vs. Tony Bellew and more.
