Martinez stops Macklin in NYC

Martinez stops Macklin

Eurosport

Martinez, who bettered his record to 48-2-2 with 28 knockouts, struggled to settle into the fight and nearly went down in the eighth round, his glove touching the canvas, before he recovered.

But as the fight progressed the Argentine continued to get stronger and, after the eighth, Macklin barely registered another punch.

Martinez connected with two huge hits towards the end of the 11th round, prompting Macklin’s corner to ask referee Eddie Cotton to stop the fight.
