Michael Hunter and Chris Algieri pick up one-sided wins

It didn’t feel look too many people were in the Hulu Theater to see the boxing portion of TrillerVerz, but Michael Hunter and Chris Algieri both took care of business in one-sided fashion as the new series premiered.

Hunter improved to 20-1-1 (14 KO) by dominating Mike Wilson in their heavyweight main event, scoring a knockdown and stoppage in the fourth round. The 33-year-old Hunter was never really tested at all by Wilson (21-2, 10 KO), who was once a top American amateur but is now 38 and has been a club fighter in his professional career, save for a loss to Denis Lebedev in 2018.

This was pretty much the mismatch you’d have expected on paper, as Hunter is a legitimate top 10 heavyweight right now and Wilson isn’t in the top 100. But it does get Hunter fighting again, and it put a regional WBA strap on his shoulder, so he’s got some rankings juice there, too.

Here’s a look at the knockdown that ended the fight:

The co-feature was another mismatch, as former 140 lb titlist Chris Algieri returned from a 26-month inactive spell to dominate Mikkel LesPierre over 10 rounds in a 144 lb catchweight fight.

The 37-year-old Algieri (25-3, 9 KO) could still be a plenty useful fighter at 140/147, not a top guy in either division, but he can still fight, still has a good motor, and has maintained himself physically over the years better than most fighters do. All in all, he’s won four straight since his 2016 loss to Errol Spence Jr, and while the opposition hasn’t been amazing, there have been some decent wins in there.
