Greenlawn's Chris Algieri, a former WBO junior welterweight champion, returns to the Barclays Center ring for the first time since losing to Amir Khan in May when he takes on Ecuador's Erick Bone in a fight on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Brooklyn natives Daniel Jacobs and Peter Quillin headline the card in their hometown.

Algieri is 20-2 with eight knockouts in his career.

"I am very excited to return to Barclays Center, where I have had some of my best showings," Algieri said Wednesday. "On Dec. 5, I am looking forward to having my best performance yet."

Algieri, 31, defeated Mike Arnaoutis and Emmanuel Taylor en route to his upset title win over Ruslan Provodnikov in June 2014 when he rose to fame. The win over Provodnikov landed him a fight against Manny Pacquiao last November, but the 36-year-old was too much for him to handle.

Bone began his career in the U.S. in 2014 and won the first 12 bouts of his career. In his most recent fight, he lost to world champion Shawn Porter on March 13.

"This is a huge fight for me," said Bone (16-2, 8 KO). "I know Algieri well and I know that he is going to bring it. I am fighting a great fighter and after my performance on Dec. 5, the world will know my name."
