Brian Magee Would Consider a George Groves Showdown

By Phil D. Jay

Former European super-middleweight champion Brian Magee has told World Boxing News that he may consider taking on the new British and Commonwealth champion George Groves in the future if the right offer was put on the table. The 35 year-old, who was stopped by IBF belt holder Lucian Bute in his last outing, was impressed by the Londoner’s performance and hasn’t ruled out a possible match-up next year.

23 year-old Groves, produced his career-best display in taking former Olympic champion James DeGale’s Lonsdale Belt at the O2 Arena in London last night and the former IBO champion says it may come down where the “Saint” lies in the world standings as the southpaw looks to keep himself in world title contention.

“Groves fought a great fight, he was a very worthy winner and stepped up whereas DeGale never,” Magee told WBN.

“I can’t see a bout at the minute, but as he is a double champion now, I am sure he will start climbing the ratings over the next few fights so you never know.

“All fights can be made if the offer is right,” added Magee.

The Belfast-based fighter is looking for a comeback fight after his world title disappointment in Canada last March, which ultimately cost him his European title and Magee will be looking to get back in with a top-ten ranked opponent as time is running out for him to get another crack a genuine world champion.

I like this fight, but i personally feel Kenny Anderson is a better fighter than Magee, i wouldn't mind a rematch as he took there last fight at very short notice and was tight at the weight!
