Rubio files official protest

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican boxer Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio has filed a formal protest to the WBC citing numerous violations of WBC rules in the period before, during and after his February 4 title fight against WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Among the issues are the lack of drug testing, Chavez’ massive weight fluctuations and “various breaches that occurred at ringside during the fight.” Rubio wants the result of the fight changed to no-decision and a rematch ordered.

Interview

Maidana: “I feel that I have to knock Alexander out!”

Interview by Mariano A. Agmi

On Saturday, February 25th at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, two time WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (31-2, 28 KOs) faces former unified WBC/IBF junior welterweight titlist Devon “The Great” Alexander (22-1, 13 KOs) in a 10 round welterweight bout.

The HBO-televised bout is a move up to the welterweight limit for both pugilists, who have each spent practically their entire careers successfully campaigning in the 140lb weight class. While the power-punching Maidana enters the bout having decisioned the legendary Erik Morales and knocking out the unknown Petr Petrov in 2011 after losing a close decision to Amir Khan, it is the talented southpaw Alexander who must show the world that he is still a rising star in the sport after sub-par performances against Andriy Kotelnik (W12), junior welterweight king Timothy Bradley (L10) and Lucas Matthysse (W10).

Ismayl Sillakh (17-0, 14 KO), a young, 26-year old Ukrainian making his home in Los Angeles, California just wants to fight. The negotiations for the second World Boxing Council ordered fight with Jean Pascal ended the same way that the first one did – with Pascal’s promoters deciding that they are not interested in fighting the most talked about contender in the light heavyweight division. It was a surprise, because it looked like both sides were close to making a deal and puts Pascal in an uncomfortable position because there are reports that his preferred option – fighting the 37- year old Zsolt Erdei – has been rejected by Showtime.
