Rubio Explains Why He Needs To Knock Chavez Jr. Out

By Miguel Rivera

Middleweight Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs) does not see another other option. To beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-01, 31KOs) on February 4th in San Antonio, a knockout is needed, says Rubio. Rubio gets his chance to challenge Chavez for the WBC middleweight crown. HBO will televise the fight. Rubio, explaining his fear of the judges being influenced by outside sources, will do everything to secure a knockout victory. Rubio has won his last ten fights, nine of them by knockout.

"The knockout is needed. We all know that Chavez has a lot going for him...television and [he's with] the promoter of show, so we're going to look for a knockout from the first round. There is a strong favoritism with him in boxing because of his father. He has the [Chavez] name and he has the backing of the promoter, so obviously they will not want his fighter to lose and that is why we we're forced to look for the knockout. Julio is a magnet at the box office and we will take advantage of that to try and build our name," Rubio said.
