Gary Russell Jr.: Me and Haymon 'had a plan all along'

By Mike Coppinger

Gary Russell Jr. has been of the most tantalizing prospects since he represented the U.S. at the 2008 Olympic Games, but he's been moved as a pro at glacial pace.

Russell said he's "not at all" bothered by the constant criticism, and he feels Al Haymon's plan played out perfectly.

"You know it comes with the territory," Russell told BoxingScene.com. "We played our cards the way we wanted to play them. We wanted to get to 23-, 24-0 before we competed for a world title and this is where we’re at. We definitely had a plan all along and (the critics) are going to see the benefits of our plan on June 21."

Russell has a point: many fighters are moved far too quickly, their careers ruined. If Russell beats Vasyl Lomachenko on Saturday, his detractors will have nothing more to say -- Russell will be a world champion.

[QUOTE=vman075]Is he the worst kind of hypocrite bc he's not a hypocrite at all? A hypocrite is if he criticized Russell and praised another guy who followed the same career path. Loma is the complete opposite. One guy fought a contender in his first fight and for a title in his second, the ot...

[QUOTE=DempseyRollin]They are gonna be sick come fight night. Bahahaha. Gonna be very enjoyable.[/QUOTE] Doubt it... As someone already pointed out it's a lose-lose situation for him. If he wins it's basically a win over a 1-1 prospect who's not even ranked in the top 20 by boxrec. If he lose...

Yeah. The plan is continue to fight bums to build up your record and take a title shot with a guy with barely any pro experience. Out of all the fights you had, you barely fought anyone with a pulse.
