This Saturday night in Chihuahua, Mexico, longtime middleweight contender Marco Antonio Rubio faces off with Italian journeyman Domenico Spada. The WBC is recognizing this as a fight for the "interim" 160-pound title, but how they arrived at that decision when Sergio Martinez is about to defend the belt against Miguel Cotto in June is a mystery to me.
Either way, this has the makings of an entertaining scrap. Rubio and Spada are both talented fighters with world-class experience.
They have both consistently failed to break through to the top level in the world, but the winner will be in good position to make another run.
