Ramirez Says Rubio Was Cowardly, Calls For Chavez Jr.

By Miguel Rivera

Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramírez (29-0, 23 knockouts), who is preparing in this Los Angeles for the upcoming fight with Colombian contender Fulgencio Zuniga on November 15th in San Antonio, Texas, (27-9-1, 24 knockouts), was ringside last Saturday night at StubHub Center to witness the fight between his compatriot Marco Antonio Rubio "Veneno" and "GGG" Gennady Golovkin.

Ramirez was very disappointed in what he saw from Rubio, who likely obtained his last major chance in boxing.

"Golovkin showed on Saturday that he was the only fighter with a Mexican style inside that ring, because the truth is I didn't see anything from Rubio - who disappointed all of the people who supported him by not wanting to get up in time. That was a very cowardly attitude on his part," Ramirez said.

Ramirez assured that if Top Rank finalizes a fight between himself and countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - they will put on a war for the fans in Los Angeles.

"A fight between Chávez Jr. and myself would be a true Mexican style fight, because both of us are Mexican, we like go in there to punch and we are not used to taking a step back. Chavez and myself are warriors. I know the fans would love that fight," Ramirez said.

Rubio got stopped legit. 99% of boxers who would have got hit with those punches would have took a dirt nap.

He's right. That fool did the one thing he said he wasn't going to. He quit. No interest in seeing Rubio again.
