World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman has confirmed that Marco Antonio Rubio's WBC interim-middleweight title will be at stake when he faces on WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs) on October 18th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs) is the mandatory challenger to full champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs), who captured the belt in June with ten round TKO win over Sergio Martinez. Sulaiman says the winner of Golovkin-Rubio would become the mandatory for Cotto.

"We have decided that the fight between Golovkin and Rubio will be a unification, both are world champions and the council decided that it's a title unification bout," said Sulaiman. "The winner of this fight would go against Cotto, who could make a [voluntary] defense [of his title] at the end of the year, which is still undetermined."

"It will be a great fight and it's very good for the division which has excellent world champions. Rubio is our champion, he is a great fighter and he will face another very prominent world champion, which speaks volumes about the high level of this division."

Miguel won't fight GGG. There are more lucrative and winnable fights available to him.

[QUOTE=oc9979]Could Cotto make $10 millions vs GGG?[/QUOTE] No but he can make that against Canelo easily.Cotto should just drop the belt.
