WBC Middleweight Title Eliminator Bout (12 Rds)

Marco Antonio Rubio (50-5-1, 43 KOs) wins by TKO, 2:36, 7th rd over David Lemieux (25-1, 24 KOs)

In the seventh round, after weathering Lemieux's storm in the early rounds, Rubio wore down Lemieux -

catching Lemieux with an overhand right that sent Lemieux down into the corner (holding onto the ropes so

he wouldn't hit the canvas) - got a standing eight. The fight resumed and Rubio was just peppering Lemieux

with hard shots causing Lemieux's corners to step onto the ring to stop the bout.
