Middleweight contender Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio expects an easy win on Saturday against American Marcus Upshaw when they meet Saturday night at “La Macarena” Center in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico.
Upshaw stirred things up at the press conference when he stated “Rubio will go to sleep because I speak with my fists in the ring.”
Rubio responded, “Upshaw can say whatever he wants. I have no fear. I’m the best middleweight in the world and he’ll respect me.”
The best fight of the night is expected to be a clash between prospects Mahonri “Russian” Montes and Jose “Piston” Lopez in an eliminator for the WBC Silver Championship.
Also former female world champion Arely Muciño returns against Suri “Tsunami” Tapia.
