Rubio: I Will Punish Akrong, My Message To Chavez

By Joaquin Trejo

The mandatory challenger for the middleweight title of World Boxing Council, Mexico's Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio, has promised to punish his next opponent, Ghanaian boxer Mohammed Akrong, to send a clear message regarding his anger to champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Rubio won a WBC title eliminator in April by knocking out David Lemieux. But the Mexican boxer is being overlooked as Chavez will face Ronald Hearns on September 17 and already has a date of November 19 against Peter Manfredo Jr.

The fight against Akrong will take place on September 3 in San Luis Potosi and Televisa will carry the card.

"The African boxer will pay the piper. I'm going to send a warning message to my next opponent [Chavez] by knocking out [Akrong] because I'm sure he will watch my fight. The African boxer will have to absord all of my courage and all my anger. He will pay the piper, because with every single punch I will be sending a message to Jr. Again, he can run all he wants, but sooner or later he will have to face me," said Rubio, who has a record of 51 victories, 44 before the limit, 5 losses and 1 draw.

Son, 43 better fighters than you have tried and 43 better fighters than you have failed. Tired of these bums like Rubio and Martinez trying to make themselves famous by having Chavez say their name.

Why is he still calling out Chavez? By the time Rubio is next in line, Martinez will have taken the belt from Chavez.
