But Macklin looking fired up and in great shape, charged straight at Alcline with viscous intent and it was clear he wasnt going to let his man off the hook here. – A second knockdown and count ensued after Macklin half bludgeoned and knocked Alcine to the canvas again. He shown heart to get up especially after the first knockdown, which Macklin had delivered with finishing power in text book style off a double jab.
An British matchup against Martin Murray could also be on the cards, and would make a great fight on the Ricky Hatton comeback undercard would’nt it? Having said that a fight against Murray would be a main event in itself and would go someway to finding the best middleweight in the country, with Londoner Darren Barker also in that mix of three.
