Matthew Macklin will face Jorge Sebastian Heiland for the WBC international middleweight title in an official world title eliminator in Dublin on 15 November.

Macklin and Heiland were set to meet in August but the fight was cancelled after Macklin’s lead trainer Jamie Moore was shot twice in the legs in Marbella.

Macklin can continue his progress towards facing the Puerto Rican WBC champion Miguel Cotto if he can see off Heiland, the 27-year-old who is ranked at number four with the WBC and won the WBC international title in November with a fifth round knockout of Billi Godoy.

The fight will take place in the 3 Arena and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

On the same card, Spike O’Sullivan and Anthony Fitzgerald will face off in a middleweight bout, commonwealth super flyweight champion Kal Yafai will defend his title against Luke Wilton and Michael Sweeney and Ian Tims meet again for the Irish cruiserweight title.

Dubliners Luke Keeler, Patrick Hyland and Declan Geraghty will also be in action.
