  • Comments Thread For: Magsayo: If I Have The Opportunity To Fight Gary Russell, My Dream Fight Would Come True

    LAS VEGAS - Mark Magsayo is open to fighting any of boxing's featherweight champions. His preference, however, is to test himself against Gary Russell Jr., the long-reigning WBC 126-pound champion. Magsayo's spectacular knockout of Julio Ceja last month at T-Mobile Arena improved his status with the WBC because their scheduled 12-round fight was a WBC elimination match.

    Excellent matchup. This would be perfect for FOX but unfortunately they only seem interested in big ppvs

      Having the same style as last fight, Russell beat Magsayo easily...

          He needs at least 2-3 more fights against decent people before he steps up that much.

            He's not ready for GRJ! I STILL want Tank vs. GRJ, even @ 135! Valdez vs. GRJ would be excellent for Crawford vs. Porter PPV too! I know it's a dream, but I would love it!

              You could be right! I think inactivity hurt Pacquiao, more than his age!

                  DID the WBC order him to fight Rey Vargas? I saw articles saying they did, but that was in January!!!

                  WBC Orders Gary Russell Jr Vs. Rey Vargas

                  By Jeff Aronow: Gary Russell Jr has been ordered to defend his WBC featherweight title against Rey Vargas by the World Boxing Council. WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman says the unbeaten Vargas (34-0, 22 KOs) moves up in eight to challenge Russell Jr (31-1, 18 KOs) for his belt.

                  Vargas, 30, still holds the WBC super bantamweight, but his last defense of the belt was a year and a half ago against Tamoki Kameda in July 2019. That’s a long time to go between title defenses for a champion in the lighter weight classes. Vargas vs. Kamedia was a war from start to finish.

                  I also remember this:

                  Gary Russell Jr and Rey Vargas come to terms for mandatory title defense

                  WBC featherweight champion Gary Russell Jr, one of the rare few fighters whose schedule saw no impact whatsoever from the COVID pandemic, is nearly set for his annual appearance. The sanctioning body revealed yesterday evening that he successfully came to terms with mandatory challenger Rey Vargas and that TGB Promotions would “announce the date and place for this attractive bout shortly.”

                  "Shortly???" The last article is from March!!!
