Andy Lee Aims To Secure Matthew Macklin Clash

Last Saturday night, Irish middleweight Andy Lee made quick work of Hungarian Ferenc Hafner as he recorded a second-round stoppage win at the Phones4u Arena in Manchester. Lee, who is trying to get back into the world title mix following a loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last year, completely dominated from the start. He scored his first knockdown in round one, a left hook to the body sending his opponent to the canvas, although Hafner beat the count.

Even though it was only scheduled as a six-round workout for Lee, it was already clear the contest would not even go to that short distance. Hafner was down twice more in the second round and even though he managed to rise to his feet, the referee wisely waved the fight off to save him from any unnecessary punishment.

This year has seen Lee relocate to London to train with Adam Booth and following the fight he stated his intention to take on Matthew Macklin.

"There is nothing official but I want the fight. Hopefully he wants the fight - I think he said he wants it - so let's get it on, there is no need for us not to," he said. "We're both from Ireland, we're both middleweights, we're similarly rated, we're both in a similar position in our careers. Let's let the best man win."

[QUOTE=King-;13975390]^^ who Did he fight? This would be a good fight, though. But Macklin shouldn't overlook Russ, it's the perfect opportunity for someone new to step on the scene and put his name out there, especially if Macklin is looking…
