Rubio Starts The Hard Work For Chavez Jr. Title Clash
By Miguel Rivera
Middleweight contender Marco Antonio Rubio has started his training camp at Mexico's Otomi Ceremonial Center, as he prepares for his upcoming fight with WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on February 4th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Together with his team, Rubio arrived on Friday to the area, where the cold mountains and icy weather is being reporting as being two degrees below freezing, with snow-water visible everywhere in the high altitude camp.
Rubio will train there for three weeks to aquire the proper conditioning to beat Chavez.
"At Otomi, the weather is cold. In the afternoon it improves a bit, but it does not become a hot climate. It is important that we feel good running at a high altitude, especially with the desire to arrive in perfect condition for the fight," Rubio said. "Altitude training is beneficial for many reasons. The intention is to acquire a better condition than we had for the last fight with Matt Vanda, so here we are - stepping up preparations to reach 100%."
