San Luis Potosi - Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio put on a punishing display at the Convention Center, as he stopped African challenger Mohammed in the fifth round, which improved his record to 57-4, 48KOs. Fighting with the WBC International title at stake, Rubio continued to stake his claim as the official challenger to the World Boxing Council's full champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Rubio earned his position earlier this year with a knockout victory over previously undefeated David Lemieux in a WBC eliminator.

"Julio Cesar Chavez continues to state that he wants to fight the best in the [middleweight] division. Once again, I'm here to say - here I am. The victory [over Akrong] was important because I wanted to let him know that our fight is what the fans want to see. I won the fight strong, and won the [international] title because I want to be world champion," Rubio said.

I just watched Rubio's last fight against tomato can ( let's be real) Mohammed Akrong and I noted the following: Rubio has a great shoulder roll. It's a subtle move that doesn't look like much but he's able to avoid alot of shots that way.. He fights flat footed and doesn't waste a lot of m...
