Gary Russel really needs to step up his competition levelComment by ddangerous on 03-02-2013
I'm picking Bogere to take it. I think his speed and awkward timing will confuse Abril.Comment by mathed on 03-02-2013
I think Abril wins this one in a rough fight. Gary Russell Jr is a 50:1 favorite in his fight....lmaoComment by el_mas_chingon on 03-01-2013
