Macklin-Heiland in WBC Eliminator on November 15th

Matthew Macklin will face Jorge Sebastian Heiland for the WBC International Middleweight title in an official World title eliminator at The 3 Arena in Dublin on November 15, live on Sky Sports.

Macklin and Heiland were set to meet in August but the show was cancelled following an injury to Macklin’s then-trainer Jamie Moore. Macklin dusted off the cobwebs in Germany a fortnight ago with his first action since December and can take a huge step towards facing the Puerto Rican legend and WBC champion Miguel Cotto if he can see off Heiland, the 27 year old who is ranked at number four with the WBC and won the WBC International title in November with a fifth round KO of Billi Godoy in his native Argentina.

There’s a great supporting cast on a packed bill in Dublin, as bitter Middleweight rivals Spike O’Sullivan and Anthony Fitzgerald finally get their hands on each other, Commonwealth Super Flyweight champion Kal Yafai defends his title against Luke Wilton and Michael Sweeney and Ian Tims meet again for the Irish Cruiserweight title.

Dubliners Luke Keeler, Patrick Hyland and Declan Geraghty are all in action along with Stourbridge’s Sam Eggington, and promoter Eddie Hearn will announce the full card at a press conference at midday at the Three Arena next Tuesday.

Tickets for the blockbuster night are priced at €30, €50 and €80 with VIP tickets at €150 and they go on sale to Matchroom Fight Pass members at midday on Monday October 13 from the Fight Pass members area at www.MatchroomBoxing.com

Tickets go on general sale at midday the following day from The 3 Arena at www.3arena.ie and on 0818 719 300 (R.O.I) and 0844 8472 455 (UK and NI). VIP tickets are exclusively available from Matchroom Boxing at www.MatchroomBoxing.com and on 01277 359900

Odd this. I thought Martin Murray was #1 with the WBC.

I guess since Golovkin is going to be the WBC unified interim champ, they need a new regular interim champ.
