Gonzalez-Russell Jr, Charlo-Martirosyan press conference quotes

Two days before their important fights live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT), this Saturday, March 28, hard-hitting WBC Featherweight World Champion Jhonny Gonzalez, 2008 U.S. Olympian and former world title challenger Gary Russell Jr., undefeated super welterweight Jermell Charlo and once-beaten super welterweight Vanes Martirosyan participated in the final press conference at The Pearl Theater at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

In the second half of a SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® doubleheader, the hard-hitting Gonzalez (57-8, 48 KOs), of Mexico City, will defend his WBC Featherweight World Title against talented once-beaten Russell (25-1, 14 KOs), of Capitol Heights, Md.

The telecast opener will match undefeated rising star Jermell \”Iron Man\” Charlo (25-0, 11 KOs), of Houston, against the battle-tested Martirosyan(35-1-1, 21 KOs), of Glendale, Calif., in a 10-rounder for the WBO Intercontinental 154-pound championship.

Tracking Greatness: Lomachenko

Back in October 2013, I wrote (on another site) the following about Vasyl Anatoliyovich Lomachenko and his upcoming fight with Jose Ramirez

‘‘He reminds me of the Olympians from the ‘76 and ‘84 (American) teams, like (Sugar Ray) Leonard, (Leon and Michael) Spinks, (Evander) Holyfield, (Pernell) Whitaker, (Mark) Breland. They were ready to face established pros from Day One.’’—Carl Moretti (Yahoo Sports)

“Jose “Negro” Ramirez (25-3) recently shocked Filipino Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista (34-2) in an ugly and sometimes dirty brawl featuring head butts and elbows to win the WBO International featherweight title and he did it in Davao City, Philippines, no less. “Negro” has been flying under the radar as most of his work has been done south of the border in and around Mexicali. In fact, his astonishing win over Bautista was his very first bout outside of Mexico where he won his first 20 professional fights out of the gate.
