Gary Russell Jr. Faces Castaneda on ShoBox, Gusev Out
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

LOS ANGELES - Due to a broken rib, Russia's Vyacheslav Gusev has been forced out of his November 9 fight against unbeaten featherweight contender Gary Russell Jr. and Mexicali's Roberto Castaneda will be stepping in to face Russell Jr. in the main event of ShoBox: The Next Generation from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

The 10 round main event will be preceded by the professional debuts of five members of the 2012 United States Olympic Boxing team: Dominic Breazeale, Marcus Browne, Terrell Gausha, Errol Spence and Rau'shee Warren.

As a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, top featherweight contender Gary Russell Jr. (20-0, 12 KO's) knows what it's like to be in the shoes of the 2012 Olympians and he's a shining example of what talent, desire and determination can achieve once you enter the professional game. Unbeaten and one of the premier 126-pound fighters in the game, the 24-year-old southpaw from Capitol Heights, Maryland was in top form in his last fight, a June stoppage of Christopher Perez. Now, he is closing in on a world title shot and looking to join the impressive fraternity of boxers, some 44 and counting, who have appeared on ShoBox and advanced to win world titles.

21-year-old Roberto Castaneda (20-2-1, 15 KO's) Mexicali, Mexico has won two of his last three fights, with the only defeat coming against highly-regarded Christopher Martin in June. The Mexicali, Mexico native has been fighting professionally since the age of 17, making it evident that despite his youth, he has the ring experience boxers his age can only dream of. The hard-hitting prospect aims to show that he belongs among the elite at 126 pounds by upsetting Russell Jr.

"Night Of The Olympians," which is headlined by a ten-round featherweight bout between 2008 United States Olympian Gary Russell Jr. and featherweight prospect Roberto Castaneda and features the professional debuts of 2012 United States Olympians Dominic Breazeale, Marcus Browne, Terrell Gausha, Errol Spence and Rau'Shee Warren, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. PT on fight night with the first at 5:30 p.m. PT. The ShoBox: The New Generation telecast will air live on SHOWTIME beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

Tickets priced at $25, $35 and $45 are available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com .

Well this sucks. Hopefully he ends the guy in the 1st or 2nd.

It is a very late replacement so can't be that mad but Russell will end this fight whenever he pleases. Hopefully the ending is good~
