A good 4 - 6 fights off being ready ????????

Macklin has no one on his CV that Barker would not beat handily , ****in hell Luis Ramon Campas , this is a fight that's been getting the drum banged on for 12 months !!!!!!!!!!!!! , where the ****in hell youve plucked Barker is not ready and needs 4 - 6 fights from God knows .

In 4 - 6 fights Barker will be lookin for a world title

This is a term i absolutley hate in boxing " High Risk Low Reward " , fact is Barker is British and so is Macklin and they would make for a great fight , so get the deal done , its that simple , i really dont fancy Macklin against Geale anyway , id fancy Barker to beat him too , so must Matty !!!!!
But like I said in my previous post, Macklin is looking for a world title this year and Barker doesn't provide him with anything other than a nice pay check right now. I would love to see Mitchell fight Murray, but for the same reasons its not going to happen, at least not yet.

Agree'd , Mitchell Murray is another good domestic fight , but Mitchell has just come off a career best performance (2nd last fight Prescott) and we know has World Champion potential , i dont see that in John Murray and id fancy Mitchell to stop him midway through .

I look at Macklin and Barker and see one man avoiding another man when a fight has been on the cards for a long time , added to that there is no gulf in class between these two as ive stated there very evenly matched and Britains boxing fans wanna see it , Murray Mitchell isnt really the type of fight we as British boxing fans should wanna see Kevin in , Katsidis is a much better option than John Murray .

Whereas i dont see Geale for an alphabet as a better option for Macklin .

Look for Hatton to go the IBO route with Macklin against Mundine

The IBO will be to Hatton but the WBO is to Frank.

EDIT: actually read it and saw Mundine vacated. Still looks to bo the IBO route though, vacant title perhaps?

Yep.

EBU middle champ Matthew Macklin will according to the EBU defend the title against Khoren Gevor, under contract with Universum but involved in a promotional dispute that as far as I know is not settled yet. Macklin vs Gevor - if on - goes ahead April 16 in Birmingham.

Not certain though

I think Ghevor is next up as mando for the European but after that Macklin may fight Geale in a world title eliminator. Obviously, it is only the Aussie promoter throwing Macklin's name out there. Hatton may have mentioned something to him whilst on holiday but that doesn't mean Macklin-Geale will happen.

Gevor gave Abraham a tough fight. Didn't see the Sturm fight but apparently he was robbed.

A far more dangerous assignment for Macklin than either Pirog, Barker or Geale IMO.

World titles mean **** all nowadays.

More than ever, it's quality of opposition that counts.

I think your right at the top level , if you are a Eu champ or C'mmn Wlth or British or American champion you need a world title somewhere down the line for credibility , hence Mitchell looking at Katsidis instead of John Murray , Amir Khan looking past almost every fighter apart from the Fagan's and Earl's of the world , Hatton looking past Witter , Calzaghe Froch and so on !!!!!

I think if youve been a world champion and proven world class your bang on there is no requirement for a world Title to be on the line (DLH Pacquiao , Hatton Pacquiao (IBO aint a World Title) , Mayweather Marquez) , but if your looking to break into that " Box Office " status you need a strap at least 1 .

I don't mean in terms of business, I mean in regards to accomplishment.
