Rubio: Chavez Jr. looks for excuses

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC’s mandatory middleweight world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio has expressed amazement at the cancellation of the WBC world title defense of his compatriot Julio Cesar Chavez Jr against Ronald Hearns scheduled for September 17 in Mexico. “I heard that he suffered a laceration on his right hand and has an alleged injury,” said Rubio. “Personally I think it’s an excuse. I don’t think Chavez Jr. is in good condition or has had good training. I understood that it may be a weight problem. Julio is a man who likes to eat but he must understand that as a world champion he must dedicate more time to the gym because he has obligations to defend his world crown. There’s already a precedent in 2009 when he tested positive for the diuretic furosemide to lose weight in Las Vegas for the fight against Troy Rowland.” Rubio trains daily at the Gold Boxing Gym with trainer Jorge “Mapimi” Rodriguez in Torreon. On September 3 he will facing Mohammed Akrong from Ghana in San Luis Potosi at an event organized by Promociones del Pueblo.
