Rubio: I'm Working Very Hard To Beat David Lemieux!

By Joaquin Trejo

Mexico's Marco Antonio "Poison" Rubio stares intently at the horizon, trying to picture the upcoming eliminator on April 8 in Montreal, Canada, against knockout artist David Lemieux. The winner will receive the right to challenge for the World Boxing Council (WBC) title, which is going to be the winner of the June 4 bout between Sebastian Zbik and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Admittedly, Rubio will be cautious in the ring as the Canadian has a vicious knockout record with 25-0 tally, with 24 knockouts, and Rubio can also punch with a record of 49-5, with 42 knockouts.

"It's a turning point in my boxing career, I know this for sure. I am working very hard to beat Lemieux, and this is my only desire at this time. The fight will be extremely complicated, but I have to exercise my experience and power of my fists," Rubio said. "I want to thank my promoters who put in a great effort to get me placed as the #2 in the world. I am a fighter who has been in boxing for many years and I have a job, which is to come to fight."

Lemieux is dropping this guy in the first 6 rounds. He's a machine.

I hope Lemieux stops him faster than Pavlik did.
