Rubio: If I Tied One Hand, Chavez Still Couldn't KO Me

By Joaquin Trejo

Middleweight contender Marco Antonio Rubio has had a good laugh at some of the recent comments that were made by WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. During a discussions regarding a possible fight with Rubio, Chavez was confident of winning the contest by knockout. In April of this year, Rubio knocked out David Lemieux to become the mandatory to Chavez's title.

The WBC told Chavez that he must defend his title against Rubio inside a year's time. Chavez will first face Ronald Hearns on September 17, then return on November 19, and finally he must face Sergio Martinez by March 2012.

"Chavez couldn't knock me out even - if I tie one hand [behind my back]. I'm better than him and I'll show it. I respect the rules of the World Boxing Council, who gave him one year to make voluntary defenses of his title before exposing his heart to me," said Rubio. "Julio can say many things, it is very easy to talk, but you have to hold the words inside the ring, and he will see the power of punches I have. I would like to knock him out."

Rubio is not impressed with Chavez's list of opponents.

"Chavez's opponents have been super lightweights and welterweights who were made to gain weight to fight him at his division, 160-pounds, and you see how easy it is to win against easy opponents. Check my record and see the types of opponents that I've faced," Rubio said.

Rubio is crude, strong, and a touch old w/ a vg punch, w/no quit, and for that JR avoids him even for big $$$...

hed probably prefer getting his title stripped than dropped cold.

Can't believe Rubio beat Lemiuex for the mandatory and JCC Jr's team completely ducked Rubio to fight Hearns, a guy who didnt deserve 1 title fight, let alone 2 in a row. Sad. If JCC Jr doesnt fight Rubio, Martinez,…

Rubio knocks Julio out in less than 8 rounds. He has no chance.

The worst part about that statement is that it's true. I'd pick a 1 armed Rubio to beat Chavez Jr.
