Weights From Torreon, MX: Rubio 159.5, Cota 158.75

By Jake Donovan

Marco Antonio Rubio and Jorge Cota both weighed in under the middleweight limit for their 12-round main event, which airs live from Auditorio Centenario in Torreon, Mexico.

Rubio came in at 159.5 lb., slightly heavier than Cota, who came in at 158.75 lb.

Little more than bragging rights and a regional title is at stake in the crossroads bout between the cagey veteran and the rising unbeaten prospect.

Rubio (53-6-1, 46KO) fights for the first time since his failed bid against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. earlier this year. With that fight coming in front of a pro-Chavez Jr. crowd (and commission, given the post-fight follies), Rubio embraces his first homecoming fight in nearly 18 months.

Cota (12-0, 11KO) grabbed headlines with a stoppage win over Yori Boy Campas last November, leaving the 24-year old to believe that now is the time to fast track to contender status. 

The bout will air live on Televisa.

[QUOTE=hougigo;12292986]Rubio should handle him. He's a little wild, stands straight up while throwing looping punches. IMO, Rubio should handle him, he's undefeated, but quality of opposition is crap-ola[/QUOTE] yeah cota sucks. Looks like a bum with power. Keeps his hands…

[QUOTE=taansend;12292979]Will Rubio upset another undefeated KO specialist or is Cota the real deal? Never seen him fight but the stoppage of Yori Boy looks a decent result on paper. Is this fight on anywhere? I mean tv. I know it's…
