By Chris Robinson

On Saturday night, Feb. 8, WBC Featherweight World Champion Gary Russell Jr. successfully defended his title by winning a unanimous decision over mandatory challenger Tugstsogt Nyambayar. The fight aired on SHOWTIME in a Premier Boxing Champions event from PPL Center in Allentown, PA.

Scores reading 118-110, 117-111, and 116-112 went in Russell’s favor, but the contest was far from a walkover. It was the fifth title defense for Russell (31-1, 18 KO’s) and the first loss for the 26-year old Nyambayar (11-1, 9 KO’s).

Gary Russell Jr. will look to break through with his first world title when he faces WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez on March 28.

Russell (25-1, 14 KO’s) gave a very spirited effort vs. reigning champion Vasyl Lomachenko this past June but he came up short by way of majority decision, as the Ukrainian’s speed, power, and accuracy was a bit too much for him.

On Saturday night, inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, featherweight prospect/contender Gary Russell Jr. kept his unbeaten record intact, winning a dominant 10-round decision over Russia’s Vyacheslav Gusev.

Russell’s speed and crisp punching easily carried the day for him, as the 24-yar old Washington, D.C. native now eyes bigger bounty at 126 pounds.

Shortly after the fight, I reached out to recently-crowned WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia, who offered up his assessment of Russell’s performance.
