Mickey Vann reveals all from the Dublin bill where there was disappointment for Matthew Macklin and joy for Kal Yafai

Mickey Vann was the man in the middle in Dublin and spills the beans from behind the scenes

A WELL supported Eddie Hearn show in Dublin last weekend but not all the fights going as hoped, with the top liner Matthew Macklin, getting turned over by the WBC international champion Jorge Sebastian Heiland from Argentina.

It is always a tough call when you fight an Argentinian which it proved on the night when Matthew was halted in the 10th round, which in all probability puts paid to any thoughts of a match-up in Ireland, or anywhere else, with Andy Lee and a possible title against WBC champion Miguel Cotto.

With Lee getting his chance of the WBO title against Matt Korobov in December, there probably wouldn’t have been a venue in Ireland big enough to put that fight on but that’s all up the pictures now with Macklin’s demise, or so it seems.
