Former two-time world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs) feels confident that he has the power, and the skills, to stop the deadly run of WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs). The fight is being targeted for October 18th on HBO.

Rubio, the WBC's interim champion and mandatory challenger to full champion Miguel Cotto, is not expecting to face the Puerto Rican star any time soon, so he's going after the next best opportunity out there.

"I've always said it, for me it's about pride to fight with the best, so I look for the biggest and toughest challenges. I see boxing as a sport of competition. Why should you be in boxing if you're not going to fight with the best. I know that I'm [ranked at] number one and I'm eager to train to go out there and win," Rubio said.

"I think Golovkin is very good. We have seen him [fight], but I believe that I have the strength to give a good fight, to go [out there and] knock him out - and I'm going to prepare for that. The fight is hard but I am here. I want to give as much [of myself as possible]."

Rubio is a durable fighter but I see him getting stopped in the lately rounds by GGG. This fight will be similar with the Stevens fight. Anyway , it will be a good action packed fight.

So will this be another GGG opponent where people say he is durable and last to the mid rounds. And once GGG kos him early then we will have people saying that rubio is a bum etc.

comment by Golovkin, on 08-16-2014
[QUOTE=Tyler_Durden]Apparently Deontay Wilder said that he's taking a big risk against the joe he's facing Saturday night and I posted in the thread that I wonder if he was able to keep a straight face when he made that statement. Well now I'm wondering if Rubio was able to keep a straight face w...
