WBC featherweight champion Gary Russell Jr has compiled an impressive professional record of 28-1 throughout his eight year career, with his sole loss coming as a majority decision at the hands of boxing phenom Vasyl Lomachenko back in 2014. In his most recent fight, Russell Jr defended his featherweight title in Maryland against Oscar Escandon as he picked up a 7th round TKO win to pick up his 2nd straight title defense.
