Matthew Macklin sets his sights on world title fight

Matthew Macklin boxes at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on Saturday (May 9) live on Sky Sports for the first time in five years and says he must bounce back in style to land a World title shot.

Macklin returns to action following his defeat against Jorge Sebastian Heiland in Dublin in November, and the 32 year old says he is aiming to prove he still has plenty to offer at the top level and can land World title fights against Irish rival Andy Lee or WBA champion Danny Jacobs.

Macklin: My career is on the line in Dublin

Matthew Macklin says his career is on the line on Saturday night when he faces WBC International Middleweight champion Jorge Sebastian Heiland at The 3Arena in Dublin, live on Sky Sports.

The 32 year old meets the Argentine in a WBC World title eliminator in his first fight in Ireland since December 2009, and he says the stakes couldn’t be higher for his return to the capital.

“It’s the fight I need at this stage and if I cannot beat him, then that’s it really,” said Macklin. “I know I will beat him and it will set me up for a big 2015 where a World title shot will definitely come about.

Macklin: Heiland victory could lead me to Cotto

Matthew Macklin believes he could challenge WBC Middleweight champion Miguel Cotto next if he can see off Jorge Sebastian Heiland at The 3Arena in Dublin on November 15, live on Sky Sports.

Macklin meets WBC International champion Heiland in an eliminator for Cotto’s crown as big time boxing returns to Ireland’s capital, with the winner gunning for Cotto who ripped the title from Sergio Martinez.

Matthew Macklin will face Jorge Sebastian Heiland for the WBC International Middleweight title in an official World title eliminator at The 3 Arena in Dublin on November 15, live on Sky Sports.

Macklin and Heiland were set to meet in August but the show was cancelled following an injury to Macklin’s then-trainer Jamie Moore. Macklin dusted off the cobwebs in Germany a fortnight ago with his first action since December and can take a huge step towards facing the Puerto Rican legend and WBC champion Miguel Cotto if he can see off Heiland, the 27 year old who is ranked at number four with the WBC and won the WBC International title in November with a fifth round KO of Billi Godoy in his native Argentina.
