Sturm-Macklin rematch set for Nov.?

It appears middleweight titleholder Felix Sturm's promise of a re-match for Matthew Macklin, following the German's controversial split decision win against the Irishman last month, was not an empty one.

The Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, is again being lined up to stage the bout, with a date of November 26 pencilled in for the second meeting between WBA champion Sturm (36-2, 15 knockouts) and Macklin (28-3, 19 KOs).
