Matthew Macklin returns to the ring next month in Marbella as he attempts to get another shot at a middleweight world title. The former Irish, British and European Champion and three-time world title challenger will headline an MGM Promotions black tie dinner event at the H10 Andalucía Plaza Hotel in Puerto Banús on 28 August as he kicks off a three-fight plan that he believes will lead to world title glory.
“I really want to build some momentum between now and the end of the year and get three solid wins under my belt”, said Macklin. “That will give me a great base to push for a world title shot early next year. The fight in Marbella will kick that off and then I’m looking to fight in Birmingham in October and then maybe back in Ireland before the end of the year."
Having taken on three of the biggest names in the sport in world title bids against Felix Sturm, Sergio Martinez and Gennady Golovkin, Macklin believes he can finally get his hands on that elusive world title belt in 2016.
