Hatton promotions bid for this? They don't deal with either fighter do they?

i can see this being another british f.o.t.y contender hope its shown on itv or sky.

His fight with jamie moore was awsome id just favour barker for this.

I think Hennessy's deal with ITV should still be running in September so hopefully it will at least be on ITV4. 

I'm keen on going but Ally Pally is an absolute pain to get to from where I live.

No I odn't think so. I thought that Macklin was with W*****. He'd be better off with someone else as Frank doesn't seem to be trying to get any decent fights for him.

It was due to be then but the other week ITV said they were going to cease broadcasting live boxing at the end of this year.

Barker is just too slick for Macklin.

Barker UD for me.

Both good fighters and a credit to British boxing.

...went to the Elcock Macklin fight - Mack looked solid. Very quick. Will need to tidy up his def though with Barker. Tough one to call. I think Matt will edge it though

This could be FOTY over here Darren has all the moves & I favour him to win on points against a much stronger Macklin now that he's fighting at full middleweight his fight with Elcock showed just how far he has come since he lost to Jammie Moore IMO he will push Darren all the way but Darren looks to be a step to far for him

Barker UD victory, Darrens a top fighter, could go all the way

I agree, this could be a definite fight of the year contender. Credit to both fighters for taking the fight rather than looking for a soft route to a world title. This is the way Murray-Khan should have played out.

Macklin is signed to Hatton Promotions now.
