Wilson (10-1, 7KO), 6th WBO Superperweight, will face Rued (37-1, 32KO) on Wednesday night at the Brisbane Convention Center for the WBO International Superperweight title in a duel that both win so much, but even more to lose.

The Argentine, who is in 8th place in the WBO rankings, is undeniably the most difficult challenge yet for Wilson and unlike anyone Queenslander has ever fought before.

To begin with, Rued’s record speaks for itself.

In 38 professional matches, the 34-year-old has only beaten Oscar once against Oscar Valdez for titles in the super featherweight of WBO, WBC and The Ring.

This defeat was also six years ago, and since then Rueda has continued to beat his opponents and knocked them out from the left, right and center.

It’s Rued’s ability to finish the fight – and finish it quickly – is fully realized by CEO of No Limit Boxing George Rose’s “dangerous” evening awaiting Wilson.

“He can end the fight with one blow,” Rose said foxsports.com.au.

“He has that knockout power.” You look at his record and it supports the power he has.

His only loss came in the title of world champion against Oscar Valdez, who is one of the best in the division.

“Rueda, 37 victories and 32 knockouts, can end the fight very quickly. If Liam doesn’t play 100 percent, it’s a very dangerous fight for Liam.

“When you reach this standard, it is a very dangerous time. It really shows you where you are as a warrior. “

Main Event main player Ben Damon also acknowledged Rued’s stunning ability to take a break and noted how difficult it is to become the best candidate in the weight division in Argentina, a country stocked with quality boxers.

“Matias Rueda knocked out 32 opponents in his 37 victories – the 85 percent KO ratio is an intimidating thing and it is clear that his strength is his power,” said Damon.

“With the WBO, one of the most respected organizations, you can’t get to number eight in the world for no reason.

“He is also number one in the super spring weight in Argentina and the division has more than sixty active fighters, so he is not a guy who will travel overseas for a beating – he will believe that he will win this match and jump even further in the rankings. and finally he gets a second attempt at the title of world champion. “

Indeed, Rueda is not fighting outside of North and South America for the first time, only to walk the South Bank and soak up the scenery of Brisbane.

He came with evil intentions, and when asked why he fought deep in enemy territory, Rued’s answer was simple: “Because I know I will win.”

Getting to where she is now was not an easy way for Rueda.

Rueda was born and raised in Tandila, a city of about 140,000 inhabitants and in the same place that Argentine tennis star Juan Martin Del Potro calls home. Rueda’s first language was to speak with his feet, not his hands.

“I was a football player at first,” Rueda said.

“When I stopped playing it, I entered a boxing gym and gradually realized that I had good skills for the sport and that’s how it all started.

As an amateur, I lost only one match out of about 40 matches and was a provincial champion.

Against Wilson, Rueda takes on a fighter who has only 11 professional matches.

But don’t think for a second that a 34-year-old left a stone unturned in preparation.

“I had enough time to be alerted so I could plan a good training camp,” Rueda said.

“I trained very hard because it’s a very important match for my career.

“He (Wilson) is a good boxer, he has good prospects, he has good leg movement.

“Not many videos of his matches were available on the Internet, but we analyzed him as best we could.”

Time will tell if Rued’s game plan is designed to follow as much Wilson as he can, he will play as he expects, but with the duo’s combined record of top knockouts on the reels, sparks will no doubt fly on Wednesday night.
