Matthew Macklin To Spar With Doughlin For Gevor Bout

Morganville, NJ - Highly touted junior middleweight Denis “Da Momma’s Boy” Douglin is currently en route to Manchester, United Kingdom where he’ll serve as a primary training partner for top flight middleweight Matthew Macklin in lieu of his April 16 bout with Khoren Gevor.
 
Douglin, like Gevor, is a skilled southpaw that makes his opponent’s work. The 2008 National Golden Gloves champion is 12-1 with 8 knockouts as a professional and has already provided quality sparring for fighters at the world class level. Last year, the Morganville, NJ native received rave reviews when he helped prepare DeAndre Latimore for his world title elimination bout against Sechew Powell.
 
Although his purpose over the next few weeks will be to prepare the rough and tough Macklin for Gevor, the 22 year old views the opportunity as one that will greatly benefit him.
 
“It’s going to be a great experience,” said Douglin, who was working hard in the gym to make adjustments following a shocking loss to iron fisted spoiler Doel Carrasquillo. “I overlooked my last opponent and working with a world class fighter like Macklin will show me what I have to do to become one of the best.”
 
Douglin’s return to the squared circle is expected to come in late April or early May
