World ranked Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio (56-6-1, 49 KOs) has joined renowned American trainer Robert Garcia for preparation for his next fight on March 23 at a site yet to be determined. Rubio will fight for the WBC International middleweight championship against American Derrick “Superman” Findley (20-8, 13 KOs). “I’m with Robert Garcia,” said Rubio. “He has good references and I’ve seen his work with great champions. I’m sure that with his knowledge and my desire we’ll go very far,” says Rubio, who has also renounced his WBF belt and has only the middleweight green and gold belt of the World Boxing Council in mind. Rubio said he now begins a new stage in his career, focusing decisively beating his opponents to earn a title shot this year because he believes he’s ready to win the crown now.
