In the Showtime televised co-featured bout heralded featherweight contender Gary Russell Jr. (22-0) pitched a shutout against Vyacheslav Gusev (20-3).  

The final tallies read 100-89 on all three cards.

As the fight started Russell took his time and established his jab. Towards the end of the 1st round Russell unloaded a series of power shots to the delight of the crowd.

The difference in hand speed was evident early on as Russell repeatedly landed his jab. Gusev's glove touched the ground after Russell a big right hand midway through the third round. The Russian wasn't too badly hurt and was able to finish the round.

The following rounds all seemed to be a repetition of the previous round. Russell was the superior fighter in all facets of the game.  Gusev was never able to adjust and didn't have the power to make Russell respect his punches.

While Russell dominated the fight he still left something to be desired as he failed to close the show with a knockout.  With Gusev's lack of punching power it seemed as if Russell could have went for and gotten the knockout whenever he wanted. 

To his credit Russell fought a technically sound fight and was never in any danger of losing as much as a single round. Hopefully, he takes a step up in competition in his next fight.

Vyacheslav Gusev should never have had the belt in the first place, Padjai Yongyuthgym got robbed by three Russian judges when they fought for the belt in Russia.

Every Russel fight looks exactly the freaking same. He needs to step up soon.

Russell Jr is ok, but when he fights someone who walks through his boxing, thats when we'll see if he has the mettle. Juanma is a good fight for him, but only if he can hurt him. If you can hurt Juanma, you have a good chance, if not, he'll walk through you.

[QUOTE=PRBOXINGCOTTO]this kid is still green he called out juanma lol like who are you juanma has bigger fights to do[/QUOTE] I find it funny that people say Russel needs to step up, but when he calls out one of the top fighters all of a sudden its "Russel is a nobody to be calling out Juanma".

I love when people lose their minds over one outing. Gary Russell did as good as a man could do vs a fighter who didn't want to fight. Gusev was a stiff who knew he was a stiff after rd 1. It is too early to christen him a legend but u can't say u saw from this fight, or any of his fights that he...
