Promoter Osvaldo Kuchle has promised to do everything in his power to ensure that Marco Antonio Rubio will receive his mandatory shot at WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. Back in March, Kuchle was victorious before the Court for Arbitration in Sport (CAS), who issued a Consent Award for Rubio to secure his mandatory postion to the WBC title at 160-pounds.
Martinez suffered injuries during his April victory over Martin Murray and won't fight until the first half of 2014.
Kuchle can no longer sit quiet as stories continue to circulate that Martinez will face Miguel Cotto or another possible opponent when he returns.
"We have to order an international court where it states that the champion, Sergio Martinez, can not defend the world title unless its against Rubio," said Küchle. "What is going to happen is that we're going to oppose Martinez defending his title against Cotto or whoever else. He can defend against Rubio or vacate the title, because we do not want the interim-championship."Tags: Sergio Martinez , Miguel Cotto , Marco Antonio Rubio , Cotto-Martinez , Cotto vs. Martinez
