Gary Antuanne Russell Says Ryan Garcia is an Easy Fight!

One of the most talented young fighters in boxing today is unbeaten 140-pound contender Gary Antuanne Russell (15-0, 15KOs). Russell, ranked #11 (IBF, WBA) and #7 (WBC), will face former IBF 130 and 135-pound champion Rances Barthelemy (29-1-1, 15KOs) on July 30. This will be Russell’s second consecutive step-up fight. In his last fight, he stopped former WBC 140-pound champion Viktor Postol in ten rounds.

There’s no secret that Russell is as confident as any fighter in the sport. He has the makings of a future world champion and is willing and ready to face the best fighters his division and surrounding divisions have to offer. However, that doesn’t mean he thinks highly of every possible opponent.


Recently, the junior welterweight division gained the talents of former Interim WBC 135-pound champion Ryan “King Ry” Garcia (23-0, 19KOs). Another talented fighter with power, Garcia, like Russell, still has to prove he’s every bit of the best he claims he is. While talking to reporters, he was asked whether or not he felt Garcia would be a tough fight for him.

“Hell to the no! “Nah! Easy money!”

If you know Gary Antuanne’s older brother, former WBC 126-pound champion Gary Russell Jr., then you know that confidence runs in the family. A matchup between Russell and Garcia would be interesting as both are explosive punchers.
