Macklin To Remain at 154, Talks Canelo vs. Cotto

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with super welterweight/middleweight contender Mathew "Mack the Knife" Macklin (34-6, 22KOs) after Canelo Alvarez defeated Miguel Cotto via unanimous decision at the  Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Macklin felt that the judges had the correct winner but agreed with the opinion of many that the scores should have been closer.

"I thought the scores were a bit wide.  I had it 116-112 but you could say 117-11 or a bit closer at 115-113.  I thought it would be a slug fest toe to toe fight but it wasn't that - but it was still an entertaining fight.  I thought Canelo landed the more concussive punches. He landed the cleaner shots with more power so I thought he definitely won the fight," Macklin told BoxingScene.com.

As for his future plans, Macklin dropped down to super welterweight for his last fight which took place in October.  He won an unanimous decision over Jason Welborn and said that he hopes to get a big fight in the division.

"Well I fought a few weeks ago and won the WBC international 154 pound title. I did okay. It went 10 rounds.  I am going to stay at the weight. If an opportunity comes up at 154 I will definitely take it. Hopefully I can get a good opportunity soon," said Macklin.

Although Canelo was the bigger and stronger he could never hurt Cotto. Therefore, Canelo is in big trouble against GGG because he will not hurt GGG.

[QUOTE=SouthPawHitman;16271472]Canelo did a great job. Cotto showed a lot of heart but I think that those body shots Canelo landed took a toll on Cotto and that's what lead to the stoppage.[/QUOTE] :lol1: HAHAHAA
