Macklin has been speaking about his excitement at the professional boxing show “Lights out at the Plaza” which is being headlined by Macklin himself on 28th August in Marbella.
“I’m delighted to be headlining the first MGM Promotions show in Marbella, “he said. “This is where the gym is and this is where Daniel and I decided we were going to manage fighters and promote shows so it’s fitting that I’m headlining the first professional boxing show here.”
“Lights out at the Plaza sold out in 48 hours, there will be 8 fights with each one featuring an MGM fighter,” said Matthew “It’s a very busy weekend over here.” The night following the pro show will be the annual MGM White Collar event which raises money for local charity Aspandem.
For Macklin though, it is more than just another fight, this is the start of his next world title attempt. “From a personal and individual point of view this fight is the first of a three fight plan between now and Christmas,” he said “which will give me really good momentum and leave me sitting in a good position going into next year where I’ll be looking for another world title shot at either 160lbs (Middleweight) or 154lbs (Light-Middleweight).”
It is going to be a great night, not to be missed.
MGM are also very pleased to announce that Paulie Malignaggi, the former IBF Light Welterweight and WBA Welterweight Champion will be coming to Marbella on 28th August to support Matthew Macklin at the “Lights out at The Plaza” show.
The US professional boxer will be taking some time out and showing his support for Matthew at the same time.
MGM look forward to welcoming him.
