Macklin vs. Alcine: Matthew's Training Notes in Las Vegas
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Matthew Macklin checks in with a training diary after touching down in Las Vegas ahead of his Sin City debut when he takes on former World Champion Joachim Alcine at the Thomas & Mack Center on September 15th. The bout is live on HBO Pay Per View in the US and Primetime Pay Per view in Ireland and the UK on an event headlined by the mouthwatering World title showdown between Sergio Martinez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr.

"After a long but very enjoyable training camp at my new gym in Marbella, Spain and a flight that seemed just as long (but not so enjoyable) Im finally in Las Vegas and this time Im definitely here on business and not pleasure!

I got here on Saturday and its always a buzz flying in to Vegas even if you are just coming for a holiday. I love the city and always have done since my first trip out here in 2001. Vegas really found its feet as the Worlds boxing capital back in the 80′s and 90′s hosting so many big fights between the fab four of Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns and Roberto Duran and then became a regular home for the big Mike Tyson fights. As someone who grew up as a fan of the sport during that era its always been a dream of mine to fight here and finally after being a regular visitor to the city as a fight fan over the last 11 years Im finally going to get to step between the ropes here myself when I take on Joachim Alcine."

I actually like this undercard. Macklin normally makes for exciting fights. I could see him winning this fight in impressive fashion and then suddenly being mentioned again for possible bouts with Geale, Quillin, rematch with Sturm, etc...
