Middleweight contender Matthew Macklin is ready for a second opportunity to face WBA champion Felix Sturm. On Saturday in Cologne, Germany, Macklin lost a controversial twelve round split decision to the champion. There were two scores of 116-112 for Sturm, and a score of 115-113 for Macklin.  The fan favorite of England and Ireland, said the German television broadcasters had him winning the fight by four points.

Macklin said the champion has already approached him with an offer for a rematch.

"He said he'd give me a rematch. He knows I've beat him. Do you think he'll give me a rematch if he thought he beat me? Not a prayer. He's given me a rematch because he's embarrassed," Macklin told Sky Sports.

Sturm was landing the harder, more meaningful shots, but realistically the fight was either 7 rounds to 5 in favor of Macklin or a draw. Sturm was getting terribly outworked in those early rounds. If he just increased his punch output, Sturm should have won easily.

This was a weekend of controversal decisions. First alexander-matthysse and now this.

[QUOTE=Kimo]People are really talking out of their arse with this one. Even sky sports had it a draw, and they gave questionable rounds to Macklin because of his volume and agression. I scored a victory for Sturm by 1 point, clean effective punching.[/QUOTE] The german broadcast had Macklin win...
