  • —Anthony Dirrell set a violent tone early, hammering Marco Antonio Rubio to the body with fast, fierce combination punching beginning in Round 1.

  • —In Round 4, Rubio landed a hard right hand followed by a powerful left in some of his best action of the fight.

  • —A firefight broke out near the end of Round 10, with both Dirrell and Rubio blasting away at each other, but it wasn’t enough for Rubio to avoid a one-sided drubbing.

Anthony Dirrell looked like a marksman at target practice, but with Marco Antonio Rubio’s face in place of clay pigeons.

With superior hand speed and precise counter-punching, Dirrell continually knocked the steam out of a charging Rubio.

Landing hard right hands at will, Dirrell punished his opponent, who kept coming forward but couldn’t find a way to initiate his offense, eating far more punches than he was able to land.

Rubio did tag Dirrell with a hard right hand in Round 4, following it up with a crisp left, but he was never able to sustain any kind of lasting attack.

Dirrell literally boxed circles around Rubio at times, resulting in a victory by unanimous decision with Dirrell winning 100-90 on all three judges’ scorecards.
