Gary has loads of talent and blinding speed however until he fights good opponents and demonstrate the same level of ability his just another prospect.

gary is a great fighter

Gary could demolish anyone in the feather or lightweight division imo. Really I’m just glad people are finally seeing what I’m seeing..dude has talent beyond measure

Politics played a role in Lomanchenko getting a shot ahead of Gary Russell jnr, no reason why this great talent shouldn’t be next in line when a 2 fight novice got his much to many who remained silent about this blatant act of corruption, nepotism in boxing. Jnr needs to be afforded an opportunity to showcase his skills against better competition and earn a title.

WBO has Russell ranked six notches above Abner Mares? Russell is ranked #1 featherweight contender by the WBO but Mares is ranked #7?

“Gary Russell Jr. WHODAT?!?!? I know who he is… but has he done anything worth mentioning. His career is slower than mollasses in winter…. talk about ‘careful’ matchmaking…” – Yeah I remember when Russel Jr and Broner were on par as prospects years ago. Then he went into cherry pick mode and slid. I recall he also had some injuries so maybe that’s why they slowed his development. But he still hasn’t really done anything to warrant a title shot.

This kid’s career has not progressed like I thought it would. He’s on the All-Disappointment Team with Yuriorkis Gamboa.

nobody beats russell nobody

I think he waited too long.

Posted March 4, 2014 1:36 pm 


He might not be a bum, per se… but he has only fought bums, so theoretically, that makes him a bum.

It’s about DAMN TIME!!!!! That’s all I can say. Gary Russell Jr. WHODAT?!?!? I know who he is… but has he done anything worth mentioning. His career is slower than mollasses in winter…. talk about ‘careful’ matchmaking… Is Mayweather his promoter??? HAAHAHHA…

Nope Gary hasn’t beaten anybody. But with the fights you eventually get moved up in the rankings. You don’t have to beat rated fighters to be moved up which is terrible. But it is what it is. Not sure who he will be fighting for the title, it will be his normal opponent of TBE. But like it was stated Lomanchenko didn’t deserve to fight for the title and they let him.

Wasn’t Gary Russells last victory against Bernie from weekend at Bernies. Damn Top rank is trying to turn boxing into the UFC, they just give anyone a title shot.

Posted March 4, 2014 6:58 am 


Lomo? At least Gary has had a few pro fights.

Posted March 4, 2014 4:59 am 


If Gary doesn’t deserve it? Who does?

Posted March 4, 2014 4:56 am 


Gary Russell Jr. has done nothing to get any kind of title shot. He’s a nobody that has never beaten anyone regardless of how much potential he has. Potential counts for nothing, but as usual the crooked politics of boxing move the earth and find a way to give this prima dona an undeserving title fight. He looks great against nobodies, and his management is afraid of putting him in with someone of talent. I wonder if Al Haymon is involved in this kid’s boxing management?

He’s a bum!

What did Russel do to become the mandatory? He was a can’t miss prospect years ago but I don’t believe he’s beaten anyone of consequence. His opponent is TBA. Obv it’s not Salido since he’s going up to 147 or 130 or whatever the hell he thinks he can make.

you guys here about that one guy who was pronounced dead, sent to the morg were he then woke up and they noticed him kicking in his body bag?gary russell wants to fight him.

Posted March 3, 2014 9:14 pm 


He is next UP. TOO bad that nobody holds the title now. Damn I wanted to see Russell Jr vs Lomachenko but Loma LOST. Now Russell Jr will get no respect IF he WINS the title because he won’t beat a CHAMP for it….they might let Lomachenko Fight for it again since Salido didn’t make weight. But even IF Russell Jr beats Loma he’ll be beating a NON CHAMP. SO still no respect.

this guy has only fought corpse.

Posted March 3, 2014 8:23 pm 


That’s the problem. He isn’t fighting anybody. When will he actually fight a ranked fighter. Does His handlers know something nobody else does. No doubt he is talented. Really looking forward to him stepping up
