I'm the biggest Gary Russell Jr fan, I think he'll be a future star. But Russell hasn't fought anyone of note and is still at 126. Broner has 1-2 fights left at 135 probably. Russell may then just be fighting Ponce for a title at 126 by the time Broner goes to 140.
You make perfect sense, but I still rather see Broner clean out 135 and Gamboa clean out 130. They aren't in the same lane and don't need each other. Only if Yuri beats the winner of Vasquez/Gesta should he be in the discussion. Until then, the only guys that Broner should be fighting are Burns, Abril/Bogere and Vasquez/Gesta.
