We know that a lot of fighters have been falling out of shape during this quarantine period, but WBC featherweight titleholder Gary Russell Jr. wants to let the world know that he’s not one of them. So in this video clip below posted to his Instagram Russell shows off his physique as he names some names, calling out some rising stars at 135. Check it out below...

“I don’t really say much but when I talk motherfuckers better listen. Pay attention to me, grinding, I’m telling you. Devin Haney, your father done said something and it might’ve got you in some shit, shorty. ‘35, I’m coming. Lil’ Ryan Garcia, shorty you can get your lil’ ass beat too. You know what I mean? Tank, wassup shorty?

“Like come see me, matter of fact, come follow me, let me show ya’ll something,” Russell said walking over to a scale.

“What’s that say?! [143.4lbs]. Stop playing with me. I’m coming to ‘35. It’s real. Ya’ll better get ya’ll shit together. Quarantine about to be up, ya’ll better hope this quarantine shit keep coming because when I come out, I’m coming out like a fuckin’ monster!”
