Re: Gary Russell vs Vyacheslav Gusevin: Showtime March 2
Saw Gusev fight once, last year against a Thai prospect in a fight where he was dropped and fell behind before finding a way to turn it into a mauling, clinch-filled affair. Even then, I still had his opponent up by a point or two when all was said and done.
Anyway, he's a solid but unspectacular guy...much like the caliber of fighter that Russell has faced over the course of his career. GRJ should be able to defeat him without too much difficulty...though I guess it remains to be seen how Mr. Russell will react if Gusev decides to drag him into the mire and make the fight as ugly as possible.
