Middleweight Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46KOs) can't wait to get his hands on WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs). They clash on February 4th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Rubio wants Chavez Jr. to take good care of the belt because it's going to be the last fight where he owns the respected title. Rubio is focused on closing the fight strong with a knockout.
"I will do my job, and give the public a great fight, and for me, that's getting a knockout. On that day, there will be a new champion. There is no going back, the fight is done and we are coming with everything to win the world title. I feel like a more mature fighter, with a lot of experience. I've learned a lot in the last few years - so its going to help me raise my arm that day. We are one month away from the fight and we are preparing to train very hard to be 100% in every aspect," Rubio said.
