Rubio Hopes WBC Replaces Chavez With New Challenger

By Miguel Rivera

A few weeks ago the World Boxing Council ordered Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to fight in a rematch for the WBC's interim-title at middleweight. The WBC's full champion, Sergio Martinez, is recovering from several injuries and won't fight again until early 2014. Rubio and his team are asking the WBC to replace Chavez as the co-challenger, because Julio is moving up super middleweight to fight Brian Vera on September 7 in Los Angeles. Chavez won a twelve round decision over Rubio in early 2012.

"I'm leaving everything up to my promoters, because they have always managed my career and cared for my interests. Hopefully the WBC designates another challenger, because it is no secret that Chavez Jr. can no longer make the middleweight limit and there are many fighters with sufficient merit to compete for the championship," Rubio said.

Why is JR still trying to fight at this weight, I think he's scared of people his own size.
