Gary Russell Jr. is a heavy favorite to win again. As previously mentioned, he's already defended his title five times already and he's held it for seven years now. In his career, Russell Jr. holds a 31-1 record with 18 knockouts. His one loss came in 2014 to Vasyl Lomachenko, who was the holder of the featherweight belt at the time. Just two fights after, Gary Russell Jr became a champion when he beat Jhonny Gonzalez to win his first WBC title.

Mark Magsayo is certainly no slouch. He's a worthy opponent to take on Gary Russell Jr. He is 23-0 with 16 knockouts in his career. Magsayo is promoted by boxing legend Manny Pacquiao who like Magsayo is Filipino. For Magsayo he hopes to pull the upset on the veteran boxer, who is seven years older than he is, with his pure power. It won't be easy though.

As Gary Russell Jr has aged, he's learned that he doesn't always need to throw with 100 percent power. He's been a much more technical fighter which has played to his advantage.

Gary is normally trained by his father but due to illness, he hasn't been able to train with him so he's done a lot of work on his own. It's been 23-months since his last fight, which was against Tugstsogt Nyambayar in February of 2020. We should be in for a good one on Saturday in Atlantic City.
