Enzo Maccarinelli didn't look particularly good today, but that was more than good enough to top Ciaran Healy on body shots in the second round in Cardiff.

Maccarinelli (34-5, 27 KO) won the second fight of his comeback bid with relative ease, but was facing a natural middleweight who was too small and clearly not in great shape himself. Healy falls to 13-18-1 (4 KO).

Maccarinelli now moves on to a March 23 date in Wolverhampton against British cruiserweight champ Shane McPhilbin (8-2, 5 KO), which is a strange toss-up fight given that McPhilbin, whose story as champ is great, really isn't any good and should, in theory, be chum for a fighter like Enzo, but who knows? McPhilbin can hang in and take a shot, and we all know how truly lousy Enzo's chin is, so anything could happen. All things considered, that fight's more interesting than it should be.
