The Commish says:

Marco Antoniop Rubio is a game warrior. You'll see just how game, willing and able he is on fight night.

I give him credit for actually wanting to fight GGG. Yes, it's for as world title, but deep inside, Rubio must know he is just another opponent.

Yet, the Rubio power is what makes this a compelling fight. If Rubio throws the right punch as GGG moves the wrong way…

stormcentre says:

Rubio is a lucky boy then.

As he gets to have just what he requested.

Rubio is a pretty tough hombre though, so hopefully this will be a real firecracker whilst it lasts.
