It has been announced that Sky Sports boxing will showcase a Matthew Macklin bout in Dublin on August 30th.

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn broke the news via Twitter declaring that more details will be released next week. Macklin's opponent has yet to be named but the venue will be the National Boxing Arena.

This will be the first time Macklin has fought in the capital since he defeated Rafael Sosa Pintos in 2009.

In more exciting news, boxing scribe Kevin Byrne revealed that the highly anticipated grudge match between Macklin and Limerick man Andy Lee could happen in the O2 in November.
