Gary Russell Jr. vs. Vasyl Lomachenko: Preview and Prediction for Title FIght
USA TODAY Sports

This Saturday in Carson, California, undefeated Gary Russell Jr. will face former Olympic star Vasyl Lomachenko for the vacant WBO featherweight belt. Lomachenko came up short in a bid to capture that title last March, when he lost by split decision to Orlando Salido. 

But Salido had already lost the belt on the scales, when he failed to make weight. That left the title vacant, and the winner will take it home on Saturday night. 

Boxing fans have been waiting years now to see Russell step up for a title fight. Lomachenko, meanwhile, will be shooting for a title for the second time in just three professional fights.
