By Miguel Rivera

Promoter Reginaldo Kuchle of Promociones del Pueblo, who handle Marco Antonio Rubio, is willing to take part in a mandatory purse bid for a shot at WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Rubio is the mandatory challenger for the title, but WBC Diamond champion Sergio Martinez was granted the first available opportunity to face Chavez. The fight between Martinez and Chavez was ordered to take place in the first quarter of 2012.

Martinez will face Darren Barker on October 1, while Chavez has two scheduled dates, with Ronald Hearns on September 17 in Mexico and Peter Manfredo Jr. on November 19 in Texas.

If Chavez fails to face Martinez by the WBC's deadline, and the title becomes vacant, then Rubio is willing to face Martinez for the vacant belt.

Rubio's victory over Lemeiux showed that he can take a punch, has defense, can devise an effective strategy, put that strategy into action, and carry a deadly punch. Though he was beaten by Pavlik, Rubio is no joke and would be a tough fight for anyone. In my opinion, Rubio defeats Junior and...

[QUOTE=teddycanyon]Arum will delay delay delay and then when he sees Martinez is aging and has a bad performance, he puts Chavez in the ring against him and JCC Jr. undeservedly adds a name to his resume.[/QUOTE] Martinez is looking better with every performance. 50 year old Martinez still kic...

okay, but what is rubio doing for the remainder of the year? martinez has barker, and chavez has 2 fights. hopefully rubio doesn't sit out for the rest of the year. that would be great though, rubio/martinez for the vacant belt. hopefully chavez takes on martinez, at least he can say he stepped up.
