Watch HBO Boxing Matthew Macklin vs Gennady Golovkin Live Streaming. Matthew Macklin (29-4-0, 19 KOs) vs Gennady Golovkin(26-0-0, 23 KOs) 12 rounds, WBA Middleweight Title at MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort, Mashantucket, CT USA on Saturday, 29 June 2013. Brandon Gonzales and Thomas Oosthuizen will fight for the Super Middleweight Title in the co-main event.

Macklin started his professional career in 2001, working his way up through the domestic rankings, while also making a name for himself as a willing sparring partner. He won the Irish middle weight title in 2005, then he challenged the British light middle weight champion, Jamie Moore , in a fight which was arguably , the fight of the year in 2006. Although losing by knockout , this fight proved to be a stepping stone to bigger nights ahead. In 2008, he faced the ragged, but always dangerous, and hard as nails, “Yori boy” Campas, in Dublin, Ireland, and won on points over ten rounds.

Macklin would go on to win the British middle weight title, by stopping the highly regarded, Wayne Elcock in 2009, then in the same year, he won the vacant EBU middle weight title in devastating fashion , destroying Amin Asikainen in the first round.

There was talk of big irish domestic fights with John Duddy, and Andy Lee, but nothing materialized, and it seemed that Macklin’s career was going nowhere , until he got the chance to fight for the WBA middle weight title, against Felix Sturm. The fight would be fought in the champion’s backyard, but Macklin jumped at the chance.

In the fight, Sturm fought lethargically, and Macklin gave his all, but still lost by a split decision . He had fought well, and he , like many others thought he had won. He was down , but not out, and after taking another long break, it was announced that he would get another shot at the middle weight crown. This time it was the No 3, pound for pound fighter, Sergio Martinez. For me, this was a massive step up for Macklin, as Martinez was lightning quick, strong, could box brilliantly, and punch with the best of them, and he was peaking as a fighter. This was going to be a tough night for Macklin. No one gave him a chance.

Macklin knew that so he had nothing to lose, and he boxed brilliantly for the first seven rounds, staggering Martinez, then he started to slow down and Martinez seemed to go into another gear, catching him with fast jabs, and clean power punches from the outside. Macklin gave his all , but in the eleventh round, his legs were gone and Martinez caught him flush , knocking him down and out. Martinez was just too much for him in the end.

Macklin took a break, to recharge, and reflect on what could have been. He had been in with two of the best middle weights in the world, and he had given everything, trying to win the world title. He didn’t win the fight, but he hadn’t lost the battle. It was time to come back again.

It had been six months since the Martinez fight, and he had healed physically and mentally, and he knew he had to come back strong, and he knew that another defeat would probably be it for him. He had signed to fight the experienced, Joachim Alcine, and the fight would be fought in Las Vegas. The fight was scheduled for ten rounds, but Macklin destroyed Alcine in the first round, and with that, he was back.

I have been following Gennady Golovlin for years, particularly his amateur fights. He came up on my radar when he beat Andy Lee, Lucian Bute, and then Andre Dirrell, and Yordanis Despaigne, just before turning pro. He reminded me of a young Kostya Tszyu, and I knew he would be a world champion if he ever came into the paid ranks.

Golovkin turned pro in 2006, fighting all over Germany, under the radar, quietly destroying his opponents until 2009, where he got the chance to fight for the vacant WBO Inter continental middle weight title. Golovkin won the title by ko in the second round. He then travelled to Panama to fight for the interim WBA middle weight title and he won that by a first round ko. People were starting to find out what I had known for years, this guy from Kazakhstan could punch .

Golovkin fought for the WBA middle weight championship in his homeland, four months later, in 2010, against Nilson Julio Tapia, and he never stood a chance. Golovkin took him out in three rounds.
Kassim Ouma was to be his first defence, and the fight would take place in Panama. Golovkin was relentless in his attack, and wore down Ouma in the tenth round.

After that fight, boxing people were talking big names, the other champions, Martinez, , Sturm ,and Daniel Geale, were mentioned, but the bottom line was no one wanted to fight the new champion. Golovkin was just too risky, too powerful.

Golovkin defended his title, fighting anyone who was put in front of him. He wanted the other champions, but they would not fight him, so he continued to beat good fighters, in Grzegorz Proksa, [ tko 5 ] Gabriel Rosado, [ tko 7 ]and Nobuhiro Ishida [ ko 3 ].
