Rubio To Fall in Line For Quillin vs. Guerrero Winner
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.

[QUOTE=BafanaBafana;12863177]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,…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (25)
