Rubio Vows: Chavez Jr. Will Not Withstand My Onslaught!

By Harry Ruiz, notifight.com

After he received confirmation that WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. signed a contract for February 4, top ranked Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio and his team returned to the gym to prepare towards the fight that had so expected. Despite having only 40 days of camp, Rubio is confident that he will be 100% for his match against the Chavez.

"We started to get ready on Monday. We rested just a week after the fight with Matt Vanda. We start with conditioning and tactics," Rubio said. "We are returning from a long training camp for the fight with Matt and the best thing that could have happened was that we finished him early and walked away without an injury.

The stats are clear, 86% of Rubio's wins have come by knockout (46 of 53). Rubio is paranoid of being robbed by the judges and he wants to put Chavez to sleep as early as possible.

"My power, my punch, will benefit us a lot and it's going to play a role in the fight. We know he is a fighter that gets hit with everything you throw. We do not believe that Chavez will be able to withstand the onslaught that I'm going to give him."

"We know that Zbik won the fight but they gave it to Chavez. He's lost at least three times but the judges always favor him, so we do not want to give the judges the opportunity to decide the winner. If he ends the fight standing up, he is almost certain to win. We're going for the knockout from the opening bell and I'm sure I'll succeed."

If Rubio pulls off the upset, would be hella awesome. To get a decision against JR, he'd have to win 8 rounds to 4....any less he won't get the nod.

[QUOTE=StrangerInTown;11627961]All of the Chavez Jr. haters should consider his attributes as well as the flaws he displays. This is the toughest solo sport in the world and some guys are very good at making a good living without cashing out…

I'm not saying Chavez is great, but this Rubio cat sure talks a lot of smack for a club fighter. We have a saying Mexico "Cae primero un hablador que un cojo" which means, talkers faller faster than cripples

I just hope Jr. gets koed fast, I don´t want him taking Rubio´s hard punches all night... his career would be over.

Poor Rubio better KO him to get a victory, he won't get one if it goes to decision. JCC Jr. is another Pac....Arum & TR make sure their fighter gets the nod. JCC Jr. lost to Zbik and Vanda in…
