GIF: Matthew Macklin Stops Opponent With Powerful Second Round Body Shot

Six months after his loss to Jorge Sebastian Heiland in Dublin, Matthew Macklin was back in the ring on Saturday night for a bout with Sandor Micsko in Birmingham. Micsko was a late replacement for Ferenc Albert who pulled out after a training injury sustained during the week.

The change mattered not for Macklin. He made short work of the fight, forcing the referee to halt proceedings after just 1:28 of the second round. Macklin finished his opponent with a powerful body shot after he had obligingly lurched forward, head down, like a bull whose heart was no longer in the battle.

The win takes the nearly 33-year-old Macklin to 32-6 in his career.
