On San Antonio -
"I won the biggest fight of my career in San Antonio when I beat John Duddy and the fans have always been good to me in Texas. I want to give them a great fight and on that they will enjoy. The fans are expecting a lot of me and I will not disappoint them"

I hope both Jr. and Rubio get the same size gloves, not like in the Manfredo fight where Jr. got to wear smaller gloves.

A vastly improved Jr. better shows that night or else he is gonna get the same treatment Lemieux got.

Comment by Ringlife on 01-21-2012

He is getting better the more he fights he's working on boxing more and the knockouts are coming more easy for him instead of him forcing it all the time and getting hit in the process.
