Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs) is pushing to get his "mandatory fight" against WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs). The World Boxing Council ordered then champion Sergio Martinez to faces Rubio, but they allowed Martinez to make a defense against Cotto last month in New York. Cotto stopped Martinez to capture the belt. Rubio holds the WBC's interim-title.

With veteran trainer Robert Garcia in his corner, Rubio is even more confident that he can overcome the popular Puerto Rico.

"We are awaiting a response from Cotto. My handlers have already spoken to him, but Cotto has not ruled on the matter. He's mentioned other names, but it is time that he decides to fight me. The fight is mandated by the World Boxing Council and we expect a positive response to unify the titles. We will fight Cotto wherever he wants. We want the big fights, we are willing to take the risk and fight him wherever he says and go for the overall title," Rubio said.

[QUOTE=icha]if you consider cotto a MW champion then rubio is a legit MW challenger, let andrade fight for jmw titles, the guy needs to earn his shot adding more names to his resume, but def there is many MW fighters that deserve a MW title shot over andrade.. if cotto vacates then he should be...

[QUOTE=jcj0427]Lol, probably, and the Cottos fans will erupt after hearing that the fight is made cause it gives him a shot into beating mediocrity at its finest. Great case for being 100% back! Even a fight with Andrade is 10x better then Rubio. Beating a young talented fighter proves more then ...
