Russell Wins Rematch At US Olympic Trials; Faces Ennis In Winner-Take-All Bout Sunday!

For Gary Antuanne Russell, it comes down to one more bout.  Russell, of Capitol Heights, MD, won a 3-0 decision over Jaron Ennis of Philadelphia, PA Saturday in a 141-pound rematch of their first-round bout in Reno, NV.

Russell meets Ennis on Sunday in the rubber match.  The bout will take place at three PM ET.  Should Russell win, he would duplicate the path that his brother took to make the 2008 Olympic team.

All of the winners at the trials must qualify internationally to earn berths on the US Olympic team.
