Ireland's Andy Lee ready for title fight with Marco Antonio Rubio

The Irish fighter is also eager to take on WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez

IRISH BOXER ANDY Lee says he is ready to fight Mexico’s Marco Antonio Rubio for the WBC interim middleweight title.

Lee is also eager to fight WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, who is currently recovering from injury.

Speaking about the prospective fight, Lee said:

“If the WBC were to order a fight between me and Marco Antonio Rubio for the WBC interim middleweight title I would certainly be up for the fight. We are both experienced fighters and have maintained our top 10 world rankings over the last few years. I think it would make a great fight.”

The Irish boxer had been set to fight Italy’s Domenico Spada for the WBC Silver Belt as part of the David Haye-Tyson Fury undercard, however the event was cancelled after the British boxer suffered a cut above his eye while sparring.
