Rubio was little more than a punching bag in the fight for the much bigger, stronger and quicker Dirrell.

Rubio was little more than a punching bag in the fight for the much bigger, stronger and quicker Dirrell.

The three judges all scored the fight the same in giving Dirrell every round by the scores of 100-90, 100-90 and 100-90. Dirrell had Rubio slightly hurt on a number of occasions, but he wasn’t able to finish him off due to him throwing only shot at a time. Dirrell’s pot shot style of fighting wasn’t conducive to getting a knockout against a guy with a good chin like Rubio.

Anthony Dirrell: Starting the Rebuilding with Marco Antonio Rubio

Marco Antonio Rubio - Former WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell (27-1-1, 22ko), begins his rebuilding tomorrow afternoon (US time) against fringe-level Mexican veteran and 2x world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio (59-7-1, 51ko) on the PBC on CBS card that comes from the American Bank Centre, Corpus Christi, Texas.

Former WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell (27-1-1, 22ko), begins his rebuilding tomorrow afternoon (US time) against fringe-level Mexican veteran and 2x world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio (59-7-1, 51ko) on the PBC on CBS card that comes from the American Bank Centre, Corpus Christi, Texas.

The fight follows on from Dirrell’s upset defeat at the hands of Sweden’s Badou Jack last April, in which the Michigan man dropped the belt he won against teak-tough veteran Sakio Bika in August 2014. He was taking the voluntary defence instead of fighting Britain’s George Groves, who had stepped aside, and the plan backfired on him when Jack edged a MD, leaving him with no choice but to go on the rebuilding trail.

Michigan’s former WBC 168 lb champion Anthony Dirrell has confirmed that he will return to the ring on September 6th against Mexican veteran Marco Antonio Rubio in Corpus Christi, Texas.

After being upset back in April in a voluntary defence of his title against Sweden’s Badou Jack, it’s expected Dirrell should have too much for the 35 yr old Rubio, who is moving up from 160 lbs following his knockout loss to big-hitting Kazakh knockout artist Gennady Golovkin last October.

GGG puts Rubio down for the count; Donaire flashes briefly then flickers out at hands of Walters

Marco Antonio Rubio - The StubHub Center, Carson City, CA kept adding seating, and the fans gobbled them up.  Fans wanted to see Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire 33-2-0 (21 KO) squash Nicholas Walters 23-0-0 (21 KO) a rising star from Montego Bay, Jamaica, who learned his trade in Panama.  They also eagerly wanted to witness Gennady GGG Golovkin get his 18th straight knockout.  The build up for a Mexican Style battle was nothing more than a promotional tactic.  Not many gave Rubio much of a chance.  They were right.

Not many gave Rubio much of a chance. They were right.

First, what happened to the Flash. He put it best when he said, “He (Walters) beat the [expletive] out of me.” All you had to do was look at his face for convincing evidence. Both eyes were cut and swollen, and the rest of his face was also marked up. Walters was relatively unmarked, and was only in danger once in the second round when Donaire caught him with his vaunted left hook. It happened at the end of the round, and Walters wobbled back to his corner.

Rubio won’t make it past the 5th against Golovkin, says Sanchez

Marco Antonio Rubio - (Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) Some boxing fans feel that Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) has the chin and the toughness to take WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) the distance tonight in their bout at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez doesn’t think Rubio is going to make it past the 5th. Sanchez believes that Rubio will be on the run by the 3rd round just looking to survive in the same manner that Golovkin’s last opponent Daniel Geale was out to survive last July in his fight against Golovkin.
