He's been calling out the other top dogs for many years and even threatened to leave Al Haymon over it. He claims he's being frozen out from those fights. Fighting once a year would still leave him with one opportunity per year to secure a big fight. The guys I mentioned earlier, Frampton, LSC, etc, it's not hard to believe they're ducking Gary when they ducked a smaller Rigondeaux. In Gary's last few fights he's done decent though, he beat Nyambayar in his last fight, who was an undefeated 2012 Olympic silver medalist. A couple fights before that he beat JoJo Diaz who was also undefeated at the time and not long after losing to Gary he moved up to Super Featherweight and took Tevin Farmer's belt off him. These other Featherweights are in no hurry at all to fight Russell and they haven't been for 5 years. Look at their track records and how they've had a half decade to sign to fight the guy and challenge him for his WBC title. They always seem to have some excuse or another not to get in the ring with him.
