Colombian middleweight Dionisio "Mister Knockout" Miranda (22-8, 19KOs) was offended when reading the statements of his upcoming opponent Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio (57-6-1, 49KOs), who is already looking ahead to WBC mandated rematch with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Miranda will face Rubio on July 27th at the Palenque de la Feria in Chihuahua, Mexico. Taking no chances with the local judges, Miranda will go for the knockout in the early rounds.
"I'm fighting him in his hometown, I have to and I will knock him out. I have the punch to knock him out. I can't take the risk of allowing this to reach a decision. People should not think that I'm just a stepping stone for him, as I will be an obstacle that he won't overcome. I find it disrespectful that he is already planning a rematch with Chavez Jr., when he won't even reach him after the beating that I'm going to give. For him to make plans before fighting me, I laughed, I laughed a lot" Miranda said.
