  • Comments Thread For: Russell: The Pound-For-Pound List Is A Popularity Contest, It's Not Based Upon Skill

    Gary Russell Jr. is content with the self-awareness that he is among the most talented boxers in the world today. The hope is that his latest WBC featherweight title defense versus mandatory challenger Mark Magsayo (23-0, 16KOs) will serve as an industry-wide reminder of what he specifically brings to the ring.

    It's a mix of both. SO no, Russell isn't popular, thus not on the P4P lol

          It's irrelevant. A hypothetical what if with everybody having a slightly different opinion of what it's based on.

          In my case, it's entirely resume based with bonus credit given to those who risk taking difficult fights.

          I couldn't care less about who thinks they're more skilled if they're not willing to prove it by facing elite competition

              If Russell beats Magsayo, there's only 3 fights I want to see: Colbert vs. Russell @ 130, Stevenson vs. Russell @ 130, or Tank vs. Russell @ 135! The LSC fight is worthless now!

                  Now I dont know if I can agree with Gary on this one, for example Josh Taylor is a nobody yet hes rated pretty high on most P4P list. The last time I checked Gary Russell jr. was also more popular than Taylor, and arguably more skilled ; I dont know who would win if these two fought.

                    Russell should sue Haymon over racial bias.
