Photos: Macklin is Ripped and Ready For Golovkin Shot

New York, NY - Earlier this afternoon, top-rated middleweight contender and former two-time world title challenger Matthew "Mack The Knife" Macklin held an open media workout at The Trinity Boxing Club in downtown Manhattan ahead of his much anticipated world championship clash this SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 2013 against WBA/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

The Golovkin/Macklin bout is presented by K2 Promotions and DiBella Entertainment and will be televised live on HBO beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.

Macklin looked to be in tremendous shape, having kept himself just 2 lbs. over the 160 lb. limit for the past three weeks, and was all smiles and oozing with confidence ahead of the championship clash this Saturday.   

Below are photos and quotes from the workout.

MATTHEW MACKLIN:

I have had a great training camp, truly the best yet in my career. I have already been on weight for three weeks.

This is my third crack at the world title, and I just cannot wait to get in there and get things going on Saturday night.

I am ready for whatever Golovkin brings on Saturday night, but let's be honest, I am no point scorer, and neither is he. I am looking to take him out and him the same to me, so this can be nothing but a great fight.

I have done everything I have wanted in my career, except win a world championship, and on Saturday night that all changes.

LOU DIBELLA:

I have never seen Matthew look like this. I have never seen him this sharp or look in this great of shape.

People are saying Golovkin is looking past Matthew.  Good luck if that's the case. He and everyone else are going to be in for a big surprise Saturday night. Golovkin has never been in with someone like Matthew.  He better be ready for Saturday night because he has a big Irish mountain in front of him that is going to make him walk through fire to keep his title.
