that would be a good test for Gary Russell Jr

Good fight, it was discussed in the past but I think Russel get injured. Franco is decent, but Russell has more pro-style and generally I think he can do everything Franco can, just better. I heard winner will face Billy…

This is a fight i would fuc.king love to see. Franco's been tested in tough fights but russell's natural athletic ability can even things out. I like russell a lot but would rather see franco take it.
