Promoter: Rubio is Catching Golovkin at The Right Time!

by Miguel Rivera

Promoter Oswaldo Küchle feels confident that his boxer, WBC interim-middleweight champion Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs) of Mexico is catching IBO/WBA champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27KOs) of Kazakhstan at the right time. Their fight takes place on October 18, in Carson, California.

Rubio has not been stopped since a ninth round TKO defeat to then middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik in 2009. Since then, Rubio went 16-1, winning most of those bouts by knockout and losing a close twelve round decision to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in 2012.

"We, as his representatives, Rubio was asking us for big fights, to get him good economic purses. But above everything, he wants to prove that he is in that league of elite fighters. Among them being Miguel Cotto, or Golovkin or Andre Ward. We were negotiating for a fight against Golovkin and without hesitation we grabbed the fight," said Küchle

"It's a big fight. Golovkin is in a great moment in his career. However, he has not been tested against elite fighters. We believe that Rubio is arriving in the prime of his career, with the best coach in the world in Robert Garcia and he is, above everything, full of encouragement and has a lot of motivation after forcefully knocking out [Domineco Spada]."

This will be GGG's finest hour to date. Which is why Cotto wants no part of Gennady.

As long as Golovkin doesn't run into something he doesn't see coming he'll be alright. For Rubio this is about the money at this point, hell they kinda led off their statement with it.

[QUOTE=Giacomo;15023048]If I was really this confident in my fighter to win, then why not make a wager of $100K on Rubio? The last time I checked Rubio was a 17-1 underdog, so if you put 100k on him you win…
