Matthew Macklin Destroys Joachim Alcine in One
By Ryan Burton
Thomas & Mack, Las Vegas - Middleweight contender Matthew Macklin (29-4) was able to get back in the winner's circle after his dominant TKO victory over Joachim Alcine (33-3-1). Macklin jumped on Alcine early by dropping him twice in the opening minute of the fight. He then unleashed a flurry of punches and Alcine didn't answer. Referee Jay Nady was forced to stop the fight at the 2:36 mark of the first round. Before the fight Macklin had said that he hoped a dominating win would lead him to a fight against the Chavez-Martinez winner. His performance definitely didn't hurt his chances.
I don't like the idea of Martinez fighting a 154 guy unless that guy challenges him. Cotto is a small lmw as it is, Martinez would rip him apart, I don't see how that benefits Martinez's legacy apart from financially.…Comment by Sparked_26 on 09-16-2012
The Brit commentators were saying they should match him with Chavez Jr. But Macklin is just too small in comparison to win that fight. Him vs Geale is a good fight for both then the winner can go onto Golovkin…Comment by 4Corners on 09-16-2012
I'd like to see Macklin fight the Quillin/N'Jikam winner or Pirog.Comment by Optimistic on 09-16-2012
