Gary Antuanne Russell: If Barthelemy Was Allowed To Continue, It Would've Been Same Outcome

Barclays Center, Brooklyn - Unbeaten rising star Gary Antuanne Russell (16-0, 16 KOs) delivered a sixth-round TKO (:50) over former two-division Rances Barthelemy (29-2-1, 15 KOs) in their super lightweight clash to keep his perfect knockout streak intact.
