Scheduled to fight soon. Sometime in November, I believe.

Headlining a card that will include some of the Olympic team members turned pro.

Card will be televised on Showtime Extreme channel(cable tv, premium subscription channel).

Unlike Broner, Gary Russell Jnr has T-Rex arms and this will badly limit what he can achieve in the sport.

I'll mark this for a bump, for when he wins his first world title, which will be within a year.

Winning a title these days ain't that hard considering all the alphabet organizations and their multiple champions among the same division.

He's on the Al Haymon "fight no-hopers once-a-year for lots of money" schedule.

YUP!!!! I've been saying this for awhile now. With those T-Rex arms he has no choice but to fight inside which doesn't equate with a long career, especially when moving up in weight which his body will force him to do eventually.

Ward too, compared to most of the other tops in the class. Still beats them all. Easily.

Yes he is still good enough that he might be able to be a good champion in his current weight division, but don't expect him to be doing what Floyd and Pac have done and taken over various divisions.

Ward ain't T-Rexed to the same degree as Gary Russell Jr.
