Marco A. Rubio: It's a Pity That I'm Fighting Chavez's Son

By Joaquin Trejo

Middleweight Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs) will attempt to dethrone WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on February 4th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Rubio will arrive ten days early to San Antonio to get adjusted to the climate. For the time being, Rubio is training in Torreon where he plans to conclude his preparation with the help of boxers Marco “Dorado” Reyes and Jose “Piston” Lopez. He spars around eight rounds every day.

Like all Mexican boxers, Rubio respects and admires the boxer that most regard as the greatest fighter in the history of Mexico, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. A small part of Rubio wishes his opponent wasn't the son of a Mexican legend.

“I’ve always have been respectful about the great career of Julio Cesar Chavez. He made history in boxing, and like all boxers I look at him as a role model and it’s a pity that his son is my opponent because my intention is to defeat him and take away his WBC title,” Rubio said.

I remember Rubio calling Chavez J.R a fraud before they signed and lately he said Chavez has inproved over his last few fights and it will be KO or be KO'd. BIG change going from calling him a fraud to praising him and seeing the potential for being knocked out himself. That is what I call strange.

[QUOTE=liraj]Chavez Sr. is the most POPULAR fighter to come out of Mexico. Most boxing historian's in Mexico rate Ruben Olivaras and Ricardo Lopez over Chavez. I think Salvador Sanchez would have went on to be Mexico's G.O.A.T. he was actually planning to move up in weight and fight Alexis Arguel...
