Slava who?

I watch shitloads of boxing and don't know this person.

I'm really hoping Mr. Russell improves his caliber of opposition soon. (after this)

Never heard of Gusevin but I see he lost to JC Burgos a couple years ago and to Rahimov a few years before that but outside of that I don't think I recognize anyone on his record.

I don't know anything about Gusevin but I'm skeptical he poses any sort of threat to Russell. Totally agree that he really needs to takes some sort of step up soon.

I think he's closer to 25 or so actually.

Same here.

Losing to MiniBurgos & Ali doesn't necessarily make you bad, but I figure if this Russian was decent enough to be any sort of threat to Gary we probably would've at least heard of him ten years deep into his career.

For a guy as highly rated as Russell he really needs to fight someone with a pulse.

It makes me think the rumors of his brittle hands are what is keeping him from facing a tough journeyman.

If by "30" you mean "Height in inches", then yes.

This is pretty bad when even Intentional Butt doesn't know who GR's opponent is. When is GR going to step up?
