Quillin To Open Up Alexander-Bailey Card, Against Rubio?

By Ernest Gabion

BoxingScene.com was advised that middleweight contender Peter Quillin (27-0, 20KOs) is likely to open up the Showtime broadcast on September 8th. One potential opponent mentioned in passing is Mexican veteran Marco Antonio Rubio (54-6-1, 47KOs), who got back to his winning ways on Saturday in Mexico with a seventh round stoppage of unbeaten Jorge Cota. Quillin comes off a lopsided ten round decision victory over Winky Wright, which took place on June 2.

The televised main event will feature an IBF welterweight title fight between champion Randall Bailey and once-beaten contender Devon Alexander.

For a guy who's basically a solidly skilled but aging junior-middle, who was never particular quick & certainly not getting any quicker, Rubio has had a pretty remarkable career & is still a very solid threat. Rubio's a guy I…
