Default Macklin vacates, Barker to fight for vacant Euro title!!

This will be on Sky, same card as Audley-Sprott.

Barker will fight Affif Belghecham

A shame that Macklin-Barker couldn't be made but hopefully it happens somewhere down the line.

Affif has lost to Andy Lee recently.

Shame about the opponent (although I guess they couldn't get anyone that was great at such short notice), but at least after this Barker will be able to step it up.

Barker said, "I’m very grateful to Matchroom" which suggests Fat Mick played no part in getting Darren this shot

I guess Macklin had to shit or get off the pot..... changing opponents here there and everywhere.

Not a bad fight to make with it being short notice, fair play to all involved

thought the Euro belt was Matt's road to the world title

I wonder where he will go from here? Macklin - Barker in the summer

Will be the exact shame as the Lee fight imo without the lapse at the end.

Good for Barker this really came out of nowhere for him.
