Mark Magsayo Wants Title Shot Against Gary Russell Jr.

It’s been only over a week since Mark Magsayo captured a brutal knockout victory over Julio Ceja, but the rising Filipino star already has his next opponent on his mind.

Magsayo (23-0, 16 KOs) said he wants to be next in line for a shot at the WBC featherweight belt, which Gary Russell Jr. currently holds. And he said he doesn’t see himself losing that matchup.

“Russell fits me because he’s only speed, I can overpower his speed,” Magsayo told Ring TV.

The fight against Ceja was just one of the Filipino boxer’s hurdles to get closer to a world title shot. The August 21 bout was a WBC eliminator with a minor WBO belt at stake.

He knocked Ceja out cold on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas fight – a knockout that’s registered him as a candidate for Knockout of the Year.

President of MP Promotions Sean Gibbons – who represents Magsayo – said they’re aiming for his next fight to be in November.

While that’s in the works, Magsayo will be vacationing with his wife/manager, Frances.
