Two-time middleweight world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio (55-6-1, 48KOs) will return to the ring on December 22nd at Auditorio Bincentenario in Morelia, Mexico. “El Veneno” will face his countryman Michel Rosales (32-5, 26 KO). The bout is scheduled for 12 rounds with Rubio’s WBF super middleweight belt on the line.
It’s going to be a fourth Rubio’s fight of the year. The Mexican lost a twelve round decision to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in February, and then came back to stop unbeaten Jorge Cota in June and Carlos Baldomir in September. 29-years old Rosales is coming back to the ring after a 5th round TKO loss to Daniel Sandoval in April.
