Video: Matthew Macklin Talks Ring Return, More

Matthew Macklin boxes at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on Saturday (May 9) live on Sky Sports for the first time in five years and says he must bounce back in style to land a World title shot.

Macklin returns to action following his defeat against Jorge Sebastian Heiland in Dublin in November, and the 32 year old says he is aiming to prove he still has plenty to offer at the top level and can land World title fights against Irish rival Andy Lee or WBA champion Danny Jacobs.

Macklin’s clash with Ferenc Albert is part of a star-studded line-up in Birmingham as Olympic Gold medal hero Anthony Joshua MBE faces South American champion Rafael Zumbano Love and all-action Stourbridge youngster Sam Eggington’s first major title shot as he faces Joseph Lamptey for the vacant Commonwealth Welterweight title vacated by Frankie Gavin.

It’s a huge night of boxing on Sky Sports with the coverage of our big fight night in the second city joined by two massive fights from Hidalgo, Texas as WBA Bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell meets WBO king Tomoki Kameda and former two-weight World champion Ricky Burns tackles unbeaten former Lightweight World champion Omar Figueroa.
