Topic - Gary Russell Jr.
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.
"Man, can't nothing keep me from boxing," Russell said. "This is the calling and purpose on my life. If God wants me to do this, he'll enable me to do it. I know I'm gonna fight in the Olympics, continue in boxing and bring my family financial happiness. This can't get me down."
"I hit him somewhere on his face, felt the pain and was like, 'Dang! I did it again.' " Russell said an hour after the fight. "It's like a sore or something. Draw contact and it busts back open. But I had to keep fighting. Boxing's a violent sport. You've gotta suck it up and deal with the pain. Gotta keep your poker face."
