By Miguel Rivera

According to the camp of Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio (56-6-1, 49KOs), he will receive the WBO's number one ranking, at middleweight, when the organization's new ratings are released. The move to place Rubio at number one has caused a minor stir because the boxer has staged his last two fights above the middleweight limit.

In February, he challenged Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for the WBC middleweight crown and lost a twelve round decision. He returned to the ring three more times in 2012 and won all three fights by knockout.

At the moment the WBO champion is undefeated Peter Quillin (28-0, 20KOs). He defends the title against Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19KOs) on February 9th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

This is a doodoo fight. When is Quillin going to step up and look for a big fight against Golovkin, Pirog, Chavez Jr, or Martinez. Quillin doesn't want it, he even turned down Lucian Bute, and I bet because at the time he didn't feel he could beat him.

[QUOTE=Greg House]That's interesting you know because, when they announced that Chavez was going to fight Rubio, i remember a lot of people here bashing on that fight saying that it was an easy fight for Chavez and that his management was protecting him by puting him against "these easy b level f...

[QUOTE=BafanaBafana]As much as I'd like to see the the titleholders fight each other, Quillin v. Rubio is a good fight. Rubio has really good punching power coupled with hard chin, he will likely test Quillin.[/QUOTE] That's interesting you know because, when they announced that Chavez was going...
