Rubio: No Fear, I Have Just as Much Power as Golovkin!

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican veteran Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs) is not intimidated by the feared punching power of WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs). The possible fight is targeted for October 18th on HBO, with Los Angeles as the city of choice. Rubio is the mandatory challenger to WBC champion Miguel Cotto, but he doesn't expect the Puerto Rican star to face him and views Golovkin as the next best thing out there.

"I would have had to wait several months until the WBC convention in December in Las Vegas, [to get an order] for the [mandatory] position to Cotto, so it's better for me take this fight, which does not scare me at all. If Gennady has power, then I have just as much or more power in my fists," said Rubio said to Fox Deportes.

"We must train and stay fit. I never stopped training, but it's different when you're in the gym [in Oxnard] with so many champions in different divisions because you get motivated when you arrive."

"[I have] a great team led by Robert [Garcia], Marco Contreras, who is my physical trainer. I think all of us together can overcome Golovkin."

Im not sure if rubio gets steamrolled he has been in with some big punchers ie pavlik and lemieux, I think I spelled that right, but neither was able to ko him. I think lemieux is an even bigger puncher…

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;14870080]I like that Rubio is up for the challenge. When you have no confidence you better just stay at home. Rubio will give a good fight and maybe it will be the toughest fight for Golovkin so far but at…
