About a week from now Gary Russell Jr., supposedly one of the hottest fighters in the game, will fight some scrub called Juan Ruiz, whose record is a lofty 23-11 with 7 KO's.
Alright. Enough. The bullshit has got to stop.
This is a supremely talented fighter who has arguably the fastest hands in the sport but they keep putting him in these bullshit ass fights. Dude 25 years old and has over 20 fights.
He NEEDS to be put in there with some good competition. Also, why the fuck is he still fighting 10 round fights ?
If dudes in his division ain't shit and won't fight, then move up to Lightweight and keep it moving.
