Right before the main event, undefeated American light welterweight prospect Gary Antuanne Russell will faced former world champion Viktor Postol of Ukraine, in a 10-round attraction.
Russell (14-0, 14 KOs) comes from a fighting family, with his older brother Gary Russell Jr. being a former world champion at featherweight, the younger and bigger Russell wants to follow in his footsteps and win a world title as well.
Russell is a hard hitting with all 14 of his wins coming by way of knockout, he believes his boxing skills are superior to Postol and he is ready to come out and show the world he is a force in the 140-pound division.
The 38-year-old Postol (31-3, 12 KOs), is heading into tonight’s fight with a lot on his mind after the tragic times going in his native Ukraine.
He hasn’t seen his family in weeks and flew to Los Angeles to train under the legendary coach Freddie Roach, then news broke recently of the Russian invasion, he thought of his wife and twin sons still there.
He is told that his family is safe, but he must remain focused tonight and will fight in the ring for Ukraine and for his family.
