A win over the heavily favored Manny Pacquiao could provide Chris Algieri a breakthrough into the pay-per-view landscape. Algieri, 30, is a promoter’s and TV network’s dream, seemingly delivered from central casting. In addition to his spotless record and world title, Algieri has a bachelor’s degree from Stony Brook University and is considering medical school as a future educational option.
This is a first-person column by WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri of Huntington, Long Island, written as he closed training camp in Las Vegas and headed for Macau, China, where he fights Manny Pacquiao…Being part of a mega-fight like this, there has been a lot of new stuff involved.

Researchers from University College London, Princeton University, and Stony Brook University examined the link between wellbeing and longevity. They reviewed data on three types of wellbeing:

3. Eudemonic wellbeing – judgments about the meaning and purpose of life
It’s a long way from where Chris Algieri started. The 30-year-old grew up in Huntington, Long Island, earned a degree in health sciences from Stony Brook University and a master’s degree in clinical nutrition from New York Institute of Technology. Algieri, who started his fighting career in kickboxing, still works as a certified nutritionist and until his upset win against Provodnikov, he was still taking on clients.
