Macklin’s Dublin August 30 opponent to be confirmed today

AN opponent that will present Matthew Macklin with the opportunity to secure a fourth World title shot will be revealed today, says the Irish middleweight’s new promoter Eddie Hearn.

‘Mack The Knife’ tops a Sky Sports broadcast National Stadium hosted card late next month when he fights in Dublin for the first time in five years.

Irish fight fans will be delighted to hear the three time world title challenger, who plans to make Dublin his fighting home, will trade leather with a foe that will put him back in the world title picture according to the Matchroom box.

The full fight night line up will also be revealed as Matchroom also confirms the undercard.

Hearn said on his twitter “Made a great fight for Matt Macklin, victory puts him right back in the thick of things! Full card announced tomorrow- tickets on sale Tuesday.”
