Was looking forward to GRjr being a new somebody to root for.
He's still looked pretty good...It's just that his level of competition has plateaued ever since he waxed Heriberto Ruiz in one. He's still managed to take the two opponents he's faced within three rounds on each occasion...But since he hasn't stepped up in class, it's not drawing the same positive reviews that it did previously.
Gusev is pretty durable, it should be noted...if GRJ stops him early, it will still be a feather in his cap.
