http://www.maxboxing.com/news/main-lead/opposites-attract-gonzalez-meets-russell-jr <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser9" style="float:left;"> By John J. Raspanti: The boxer versus the slugger. It’s a cliché, but in this case it’s accurate. Jhonny Gonzalez (the slugger) defends his WBC world featherweight title against Gary Russell Jr. (the boxer) this Saturday night at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The styles of the two fighters is potentially the most interesting aspect of their bout. Russell Jr., 26, is all about speed. He’s loaded with it, but as he found out against Vasyl Lomachenko, speed can take you only so far. </div> </div> Fri, 27 Mar 2015 16:37:00 +0000 http://www.maxboxing.com/news/main-lead/opposites-attract-gonzalez-meets-russell-jr Joshua Returns Against Jason Gavern http://www.maxboxing.com/news/max-boxing-news/joshua-returns-against-jason-gavern <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ImageThumb10" style="float:left;"><a href="http://www.maxboxing.com/news/max-boxing-news/joshua-returns-against-jason-gavern"><img src="http://www.maxboxing.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/5840/JoshuaFight33crpd.jpg" border="0" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a></div> <div id="ItemTeaser10" style="float:left;"> Anthony Joshua MBE will face Jason Gavern at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle,England on April 4. </div> </div> Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:15:00 +0000 http://www.maxboxing.com/news/max-boxing-news/joshua-returns-against-jason-gavern
