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.…

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…

I'd like to see Macklin fight the Quillin/N'Jikam winner or Pirog.
