    MARK Magsayo said he is ready to defend his belt against anybody, while Gary Russell is eager to get a shot to reclaim the title.

    A rematch isn’t likely to happen soon, though.

    Russell needs to recover from a shoulder injury. He admitted suffering a torn tendon in training camp two weeks before the fight, but refused to have the title bout postponed.
