I'm not advocating for young Gary Russell Jr. I think he has super fast hands, great boxing technique, and the ability to be a PROBLEM in the featherweight division. I do think an 8 round fight with an over matched opponent is a stretch. Bob Arum always has something negative to say about fighters that are not in his stable. If he thinks that HBO and Al Haymon are doing the fans some kind of injustice, then maybe he should do more than talk down. Maybe he should bring his fighters to the table and test these kids if they're 'protected' or 'overhyped' by Haymon and HBO. He's speaking of Andre Berto as if he's fought no one at all. Andre Berto has defeated more former world champions than Mike Jones has. When Andre Berto was defending his title, Mike Jones was fighting a guy with 19 losses. It's easy to find these things out. All you have to do is look the fighter up on BoxRec and cross-reference their dates, with the film. Anyway, if Bob Arum sees something flawed within the sport of boxing, maybe he should be more active in bringing the fans the fights he claims that Haymon and HBO are not bringing. Do we think that Al Haymon and HBO would turn down a fight with one of Bob Arum's fighters? No we do not. We think that Gary Russell and Andre Berto would jump at the opputunity to face one of Arum's top fighters. Uncle Bob, stop being a hater. Stop talking down on the fighters, their handlers, and the network they fight on. Stop giving the fans catchweight fights with in-house fighters. Lou DiBella and Richard Schaefer put on one of the most memorable fights in recent memory this past April. We know that Haymon's fighters will step up to the plate. We ALSO know that Bob Arum will NOT bring his fighters to the dance. He'll keep his fighters, fighting his fighters and talking about everyone else like they're the ones doing something wrong. Here's my perspective as a boxing fan. Yuriorkis Gamboa is one of the best featherweights in the world. Make the fight between he and Gary Russell Jr. Happen. Andre Berto has bounced back from the loss. Make the fight between he and Mike Jones happen. The old saying goes: 'If you're not a part of the solution, you're part of the problem'. Check yourself Uncle Bob because you're killing your own credibility.
