He is the oldest fighter ever to hold the world middleweight championship (40 years, 6 months, and 1 day), surpassing Sugar Ray Robinson. He became the oldest fighter ever to win a world championship (48 years, 1 month, and 22 days) when he defeated Tavoris Cloud to win the IBF Light Heavyweight Championship on March 9, 2013. He surpassed his own record, which he'd set when he defeated Jean Pascal in 2011.

Matthew "Mack The Knife" Macklin, is the former Irish Middleweight Title holder, the former BBBofC British middleweight title holder and the former EBU (European) middleweight title holder.
