Matthew Macklin returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion with a second round win over Sandor Micsko in Birmingham last night.

Following his defeat to Jorge Sebastian Heiland last year, Mackin was determined to get back in the winner's corner and he duly did that with a fine performance against a Hungarian who never looked likely to go the full eight rounds.

The contest was stopped in the second round when Macklin landed a couple of solid punches to the chest to send Micsko to the canvas.

The win takes Mackin to 32-6 in his career.
