By Gabriel F. Cordero

Middleweight contender Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio conducted ​​his last workout in the Jorge “Mapirri” Rodriguez Gym in Terreon, Mexico for his fight next Saturday against WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. “I closed the sparring with 12 rounds with Alberto Soto and we’re ready to face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. I’ll keep the weight and try to keep calm with this confidence and desire to win that I have deep inside of me. The fight has had a lot of different comments in the media which I am grateful, but I’m another type of person. I concentrated on this fight. I’ve waited a long time and I hope to win. It’s time to be world champ.” Rubio traveled Sunday to Ciudad Acuña to be with his wife and infant daughter Gariel. He is expected to arrive in San Antonio today and begin the week of events for the promotion of the fight.
