Mackin fight cancelled

There was no luck for the hundreds of local Matthew Macklin fans on Saturday as his fight against Christophe Karagoz was cancelled late on Friday  night.    Karagoz was unable to travel from France due to a family emergency and an opponent of sufficient calibre for Macklin could not be confirmed at such short notice.    Several cars and busses were set to travel from Co. Roscommon for the fight. Macklin’s plans for the future are uncertain but The Roscommon People has learnt that he will be fighting again within a month.
