Gary Russell says Gervonta Davis’ time is running short at 130
Gary Russell says he’s coming for Gervonta Davis, but insists that he should keep it professional.
WBC featherweight champion Gary Russell (30-1, 18KOs) has made some noise in calling out Gervonta Davis (21-0, 20KOs); who holds the IBF junior lightweight title. In response, Davis made remarks about wanting to meet without boxing gloves.
The comments didn’t sit too well with the champion fighting out of Washington, D.C.
“Keep it business, cause I’m a monster inside as well as outside of this ring,” said Russell. “You do not wanna make it personal, believe me. Your time is coming. When you see me move up to 130, just know your time is running thin. Your time is running real short, shorty.”
But at the moment, Russell’s priority is landing a bout with WBA (Super) featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (36-1-1, 19KOs). Russell is confident that he will get past Santa Cruz, then take care of business with Davis at junior lightweight.
“Stop playing with me shorty, you a younging,” said Russell. “Stay in your lane. Stay in your lane because when I move up there, you going get ran over anyway.”
