Let the talk begin. There is conversation starting among fans and the media for a potential matchup between WBC Featherweight champion Gary Russell, Jr. and 122-pound WBC titleholder Leo Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz defeated Abner Mares at 126 pounds on August 29 in Los Angeles, CA. Both boxers are advised by Al Haymon.
In his weekly Boxing Scene column "Fighting Words," author and columnist David Greisman talks about the options Santa Cruz has going forward and how a bout with Russell would be the best choice.
