Dammn i had a feeling this would happen, Gary Russell jr next fight will either Make or Break his career.
Orlando Salido is fighting Vasyl lomachenko and the winner of this fight is fighting Gary Russell jr. Vasyl Lomachenko the 2-time olympic gold medalist whose first fight was against a champion (or former, not sure but the record was 24-2-2) in a 10 round fight, he showed he has the goods and i think he crushes Salido but in a very entertaining fight.
Assuming Lomachenko wins, Russell jr is in big big trouble. Lomachenko came in the game first fight on PPV undercards against a solid journeyman fighter and still looked elite, compared to Russell jr who might as well have been fighting handicapped people in his 23 fights and the last couple fights i havent even seen because they havent been televised.
Because of Russell jr's lack of opposition thus far, going up against Lomachenko will be a big leap in skill level, he wont be able to make things look as easy as he has before. Someone who actually has the skill, speed, and strength to keep up with him and even outwork him. Dont get me wrong I do believe Russell jr has the talent and skill to be at the top, but i just always had this feeling that fighting nobodies was going to work against him one day.
What do you guys think about Gary Russell Jr's future. Does he beat either of them easily? Thoughts?
