Richar Abril defended his WBA lightweight title with a unanimous decision against Sharif Bogere on Saturday.
Rau'shee Warren has no regrets. He waited through a decade in amateur boxing and a U.S.-record three Olympics to fight for a gold medal, only to lose his first fights in Athens, Beijing and London.
"I'm not sure if I broke it," Russell said. "I know I was in a lot of pain. Great fighters are willing to make necessary adjustments in the ring."
"If this was the Olympic trials, I would keep fighting," Russell said. "But it'd be silly to keep fighting here and risk further injury when I don't need to. See, I can bend it, but I can't totally ball my fist. See how that knuckle slides to the side when I try to make a fist? It'd be nice to win here, but I can't risk it."
