Morelia Public Workout

By Gabriel F. Cordero

On Wednesday at the Plaza Morelos in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico, WBF super middleweight beltholder Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio and his challenger Michel “Bravo” Rosales did a public workout before Saturday’s showdown in the modern Morelia Bicentennial Auditorium. “I come very motivated to Michoacán and the affection that the fans have shown me drives me to do my best. I have no doubt that this Saturday will be a big win,” said Rubio.

Former world champions Samuel “Sammy Guty” Gutierrez and Raul “Rayito” Garcia hope their fourth fight will be just as intense and emotional as their previous clashes. This one is for the WBO Latino flyweight title. “Not me, the fans saw that I won the earlier bouts, not to mention the way things are in boxing, but I will take revenge on Saturday night and make it clear that I am better,” said Gutierrez.

The card will be the 2012 season finale of Promociones del Pueblo’s popular Saturday fight series on Mexico’s Televisa network.
