With Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. looming, Marco Antonio Rubio knocked Dionisio Miranda onto Queer Street in the second round Saturday night at the Palenque de la Feria in Chihuahua, Mexico.
 
After flooring “Mister Nocaut” in the first, the 33-year-old Rubio (58-6-1, 50 KOs) finished Miranda (22-9-2, 19 KOs) at 2:44 of the following round. 
 
Earlier this month, the WBC ordered a rematch between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Rubio for the interim middleweight title.
 
In their initial bout in February 2012, the 27-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) earned a unanimous decision triumph over the veteran bruiser. 
 
Chavez most recently exited the squared circle in September as a unanimous decision loser to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight king Sergio Martinez.
 
Roughly 11 months after getting snagged with dirty urine, Chavez is set to battle American Brian Vera on August 3 in Mexico City.
 
Provided Chavez defeats Vera (23-6, 14 KOs), the two prizefighters should clash in the early wintertime.
 
Born into wealth, Chavez was pinched juicing in November 2009, arrested driving shitfaced in January 2012, and suspended for a positive marijuana test following the Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KOs) tussle.
 
Despite possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s, expect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. to again overcome Rubio whenever they ultimately meet.
