Rubio, As Promised, To Get Quillin-Guerrero Winner

By Miguel Rivera

BoxingScene.com reported a few weeks ago that former champion Marco Antonio Rubio (56-6-1, 49KOs) would receive the WBO's number one ranking at middleweight. Rubio's camp has confirmed that he indeed received the WBO's top position at 160, with former champion Dmitry Pirog getting the number two spot.

In February, he challenged Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for the WBC middleweight crown and lost a twelve round decision. He returned to the ring three more times in 2012 and won all three fights by knockout.

At the moment the WBO champion is undefeated Peter Quillin (28-0, 20KOs). He defends the title against Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19KOs) on February 9th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Rubio is now the first in line for the WBO middleweight crown and his team is already making plans to pursue the winner of February's match.

I guess Golovkin will have to wait.... for now GB will "build" a fight between these two first

He'll probably fight Jermain Taylor after that. Rubio did nothing against Chavez, nothing against Pavlik, and is another carefully chosen opponent. Murray, Mundine, Soliman, Rosado, Guerrero, Rubio. These guys shouldn't be getting title shots and I'm not sure if any…

[QUOTE=chiguy91;12914847]although it isn't the best fight that can be made, it's an alright fight for kid chocolate. rubio's a good test for him. every round quillin didn't knock n'damn down, he lost. so we'll see how this one goes. obviously…
