HUNTINGTON - A Huntington boxer is using his brain power as much as his right hook.

Chris Algieri, who recently fought at the town's Paramount theatre, is a Stony Brook University graduate and works as a nutritionist in Bethpage. He has also worked at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

The 29-year-old says he experiments on himself to improve his fighting skills, eating high-glycemic, fast-digesting foods.

He currently boasts a formidable 16-0 match record.
