Ortiz vs Collazo results: Gary Russell Jr cruises again, stops Miguel Tamayo in four

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, top prospect Gary Russell Jr faced little resistance tonight, knocking out Miguel Tamayo in four rounds.

Gary Russell Jr had another layoff and another tune-up fight, and did what he's always done against the same level of competition, as he knocked out a game but grossly outclassed Miguel Tamayo in the fourth round in tonight's Golden Boy Live! opener from Brooklyn.

Russell (24-0, 14 KO) had recently battled the flu and was just getting over the illness, according to commentator Paulie Malignaggi, and reportedly said before the fight he was looking to get this one out of the way. He did eat a couple right hooks from fellow southpaw Tamayo (15-8-2, 13 KO) in the opening round, but after that he started to find his rhythm and took over with his speed and superior skill.

When he put Tamayo down early in the fourth, the Mexican fighter's corner was looking to stop the fight there, but Tamayo willingly stayed down for the ten count in a seated position anyway, ruling it officially a KO at 1:04 of the fourth round.
