Marco Antonio Rubio Eyes Martinez-Murray Winner

By Miguel Rivera

Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio (57-6-1, 49 KOs) captured the WBC Continental Americas middleweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Marcus Upshaw (15-9-2, 7 KOs) before 5,000 screaming fans in the La Macarena Center in Uruapan, Mexico. The scores were 120-107 and 117-110 twice. Rubio pressed the attack and had the fans screaming "Mexico, Mexico" in several of the rounds.

After the match, Rubio, who earlier this week was named the mandatory challenger for the WBC title, said he was ready to face the winner of Sergio Martinez vs. Martin Murray, taking place for the WBC crown on April 27th.

Also on the card, junior welterweight Jose “Piston” Lopez stopped Mahonri Montes in eight rounds and flyweight contender Arely Mucino won a ten round unanimous decision over Sury Tapia.

This is probably just an excuse for Sergio to get stripped again, the same thing will happen if he tries to unify belts.

Can't wait to hear how that scumbag Suliaman justifies a WBC #1 rating for Rubio

I definitely don't want to see Rubio/Martinez, that would be a huge waste of time. Rubio loses to Chavez last year, goes on to beat Baldomir and he's back with a title shot, WTF?

[QUOTE=M4RK;13179004]Martinez has the current best 'last 5' opponent combined record. Its not his fault that there was no one to challenge him. Williams, Pavlik, dzinziruk, etc.. All tough opponents, the best at MW besides GGG and maybe Pirog.[/QUOTE] :lol1: That's…

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;13178706]Despite Martinez' very questionable choice of opponents at times, I do doubt he fights Rubio. Especially coming off a fight with Murray. He tends to have a good fight followed by a poor one. That said, it wouldn't surprise me.[/QUOTE]…
