Matthew Macklin hires new manager, targets fight with Gabriel Rosado

USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Macklin has left longtime co-promoter Brian Peters to work with Anthony Catanzaro, a former fitness model and bodybuilder who also manages Paulie Malignaggi.

Matthew Macklin has reassessed his career following a blowout loss to Gennady Golovkin in June, and has decided to part ways with longtime co-promoter Brian Peters, hiring manager Anthony Catanzaro, who also handles Paulie Malignaggi, and is a former bodybuilder and fitness model.

Macklin (29-5, 20 KO) is hoping to land a fight against Gabriel Rosado, a junior middleweight who earned a world title shot last year but passed that over in favor of a move up to 160, where he has lost to Gennady Golovkin and gone to a no-contest with J'Leon Love, who failed a post-fight drug test after winning a debated decision originally.

The 31-year-old Macklin is still promoted by Lou DiBella and appears to be eager to continue his career in the United States, rather than going back home to the United Kingdom for his fights (though he could certainly do that, too). He's had three world title shots and lost each time to Felix Sturm (controversially), Sergio Martinez, and Golovkin.
