Russell bumped up on Cuellar-Tamayo card

There's been a little bit of a change of plans for the Goossen Promotions card on Saturday night (Showtime Extreme, 9 ET/PT) at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington.

Interim featherweight titlist Jesus Cuellar (25-1, 19 KOs) still faces Ruben Tamayo (25-4-4, 17 KOs) in the main event but there is a new co-feature and a change to one of the other bouts.

Anthony Peterson was slated to face Yakubu Amidu in the junior welterweight co-feature, but Amidu dropped out of the fight. So according to Goossen Promotions’ Tom Brown and Showtime, the featherweight bout between Gary Russell Jr. (24-1, 14 KOs) and Christopher Martin (28-4-3, 9 KOs), originally not scheduled for the broadcast, is moving into the co-feature slot.

Russell will be fighting for the first time since he was schooled by Vasyl Lomachenko in a vacant featherweight world title bout on June 21. Martin has lost two of his last three fights.

Peterson (34-1, 22 KOs), the younger brother of junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson, will remain on the card but his fight against replacement Hector Velasquez (56-24-3, 38 KOs) won't be televised.

Junior middleweight prospect Julian Williams (17-0-1, 10 KOs) will be part of the broadcast but his original opponent, Edgar Ortega, dropped out and Williams will instead face Jamar Freeman (13-3-2, 6 KOs).

The opener of the quadrupleheader remains intact as super middleweight Julius Jackson (18-0, 14 KOs), son of former junior middleweight and middleweight titleholder Julian Jackson, will fight Jonathan Nelson (19-1, 9 KOs).
