New Matthew Macklin opponent named

The new opponent for middleweight Matthew Macklin’s comeback on December 7 HBO fight will be Lamar Russ (14-0, 7 KOs). Macklin was originally slated to face Willie Nelson, who pulled out citing an elbow injury. The card at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City is a tripleheader headlined by WBA/WBO jr featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux defending against Joseph Agbeko. An attractive jr middleweights clash between Glen Tapia and James Kirkland is also scheduled.
