Whoaa! Mr. Gary Russell JR Speaks Out After Tank's Big KO of Santa Cruz!!
Article by Rick Mohamed
My My My! “Mr.” Gary Russell Jr. speaks after Gervonta “Tank” Davis KO’d Leo Santa Cruz this past weekend in their lightweight world title fight. Gary Russell says he hopes that Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Tank’s mentor and promoter, grows a pair and accepts a Tank vs Russell match soon.
Russell states he has taken somewhat of an hiatus from social media and needed a break from all the BS in boxing. Russell says Mayweather was worried before the 6 round KO came along because Santa Cruz did start out with a decent fight plan to beat Tank!
However, Russell says, Santa Cruz just isn’t a sound defensive fighter and just got caught in the mix, was exchanging punches, then got caught. It’s obvious that Russell wants this fight bad: he’s itching like a street corner junkie for this fight, if you will. Is it fair to say that since both fighters fall under Al Haymon and PBC: that Floyd may prolong putting Tank in front of the true 135 guys like Russell, Teofimo Cruz, Stevenson, and Devin Haney?
Boxing minds would call this nothing more than cherry picking Tank’s fights.
We shall see how Team Davis and promoter Mayweather clap back at Russell’s response to the annihilation of Santa Cruz. Hmmmm, interesting… Well, it’s becoming crazy now.
