Gary Russell Jr.: I won 10 rounds to 2, 9 rounds to 3, I outclassed (Mark Magsayo)


Gary Russell Jr. believes he completely outboxed and outclassed Mark Magsayo with one arm and is disappointed in the majority decision that went against him on January 22 in Atlantic City. The former WBC featherweight titleholder told media after the fight that his injured right shoulder, which kept him from jabbing over the second half of the Showtime-televised main event, is something he’s dealt with his entire career, but he claims he aggravated it two weeks before camp for Magsayo.

“(When I’m) healthy, I’m going to beat that ass worse than I did tonight,” Russell said. “I definitely want a rematch.”
