Brian Magee Eyes Kessler and Froch For Next Battle

By Edward Chaykovsky

Super middleweight Brian Magee is looking at a lot of big options after traveling to Costa Rica last week to capture the WBA's vacant interim-title with a decision win over Jaime Barboza in Costa Rica last Saturday. Magee would like to avenge a past defeat to WBC champion Carl Froch. He faces the WBA's super champion, Andre Ward, on October 29 in the final bout of the Super Six Boxing Classic.

"With the Super Six coming to a close there are big opportunities in this division. There are big names and big fights for me out there. I think the one everyone wants and the one everyone is talking about is a rematch between myself and Froch. I have developed and improved since the last time we met and it is a fight that I really believe I can win. If Froch still has a world belt and wins the Super Six I would be very interested," Magee told Bourne Local.

“There are lots of options for me. I can defend this belt on a voluntary basis or I will fight the winner of the fight in August 26 between the two guys that are fighting for the regular WBA title. If that fight in the Ukraine does not take place then I could be made the regular champion. Either way I have loads of options at the minute and it is great to be back in Belfast with the belt. It is a belt everyone wants. I am also a top ten ranked fighter as well and that is the place everyone wants to be.”

Brian’s manager Pat Magee believes a November fight with Danish superstar Mikkel Kessler is a possibility.

“We are in a great position and people are calling us now looking to fight Brian, instead of the other way round. But the big name out there for Brian at the minute would be Mikkel Kessler. We could have the voluntary defence of Brian’s title in Denmark in November against Kessler. By that time Kessler should be the WBO champion, so it would be a unification fight between the two of them. It would be pay-per-view in a few countries and there would be a lot of money involved," Pat Magee said.

I could see Kessler fighting him in Denmark. Magee went to Demark before and stoppped Larsen. I dont think Froch would bother remtaching him unless he gets really stuck for an opponent. He seems to only want big fights. Good…
