Maccarinelli vs McPhilbin Grudge Rematch Set For June 22

By Luke Furman

Cruiserweight Shane McPhilbin (8-3, 5KOs) will get his chance at revenge on June 22 at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton. Last month at the same venue, McPhilbin was on his way to knocking out Enzo Maccarinelli (35-5, 27KOs) in the first round, but the timekeeper rang the bell 47 seconds early to end the round. Enzo was down twice in the first three rounds and badly hurt. He managed to hand on and won a twelve round unanimous decision to take McPhilbin's British title. The British Board ordered an immediate rematch between the two of them.
