Marco Antonio Rubio: Chavez Jr. Can Not Get Away Now

By Joaquin Trejo

Middleweight Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs) can't wait to get his hands on WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs). They clash on February 4th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Rubio wants Chavez Jr. to take good care of the belt because it's going to be the last fight where he owns the respected title. Rubio is focused on closing the fight strong with a knockout.

"I will do my job, and give the public a great fight, and for me, that's getting a knockout. On that day, there will be a new champion. There is no going back, the fight is done and we are coming with everything to win the world title. I feel like a more mature fighter, with a lot of experience. I've learned a lot in the last few years - so its going to help me raise my arm that day. We are one month away from the fight and we are preparing to train very hard to be 100% in every aspect," Rubio said.

If it took Pavlik 9 rounds to stop Rubio and Rubio could not be stopped by David Lemieux, there is no way in hell JCC Jr. is stopping Rubio. Rubio however better KO JCC jr. because no way they will…

The hate jr gets around here is amazing. Yeah man lets throw jr into the wolves against martinez one of the best if not the best in the world even though jr is just getting into his own.

I have a 50 million wager going around that JCC jr will win... any takers?

With all of this talk. I got a feeling that Rubio is not going to beat Chavez Jr.
