Macklin Over Limit For IBF 2nd Day Weigh-In

By Elliot Foster

Matthew Macklin will not come out with the IBF Inter-Continental middleweight title tonight, whether he wins or not.

The 33-year-old failed the check weigh-in ahead of his crossroads clash against Brian Rose, for the vacant belt, live on Sky Sports Box Office at the O2 Arena in London.

IBF rules stipulate that fighters contesting a title belonging to that particular governing body can only gain 10 pounds in weight from the weigh-in until 9am the following morning, on the day of the fight.

Macklin (34-6, 22 KOs) tipped the scales at 11st 5lbs 7oz at yesterday’s public weigh-in, but he put on 11-and-a-half pounds and came in a pound-and-a-half over this morning, meaning that the title is only on the line for Rose (28-3-1, 8 KOs), 31, who put on just seven pounds more than the 11st 5lbs 5oz he weighed yesterday.

Elsewhere, Lee Selby (22-1, 8 KOs) was a pound inside the rehydration limit ahead of his mandatory IBF featherweight title defence against Eric Hunter (21-3, 11 KOs).

Martin v Joshua is live on Sky Sports Box Office on Saturday, April 9. Buy now at skysports.com/Joshua.

[QUOTE=BrometheusBob.;16594502]I think it's a good thing, but it will be hard to keep this rule if none of the other governing bodies do as a lot of fighters will just avoid fighting for an IBF belt. Also, does this mean…

[QUOTE=Funky_Monk;16594497]So it would seem, can't decide if this is a positive or negative development!?![/QUOTE] I think it's a good thing, but it will be hard to keep this rule if none of the other governing bodies do as a lot…
