Look out for Danish light welterweight Allan Vester to be named as the comeback opponent for Eamonn Magee when the Irishman makes his return to the ring on March 18. Magee, the current WBU 147lb champion, has been sidelined with injuries sustained during a vicious street attack last year but is hoping to resurrect his career in 2005.

Magee won the WBU title in December 2003 outpointing Jimmy Vincent over 12 rounds.

Excellent & miraculous to see Magee coming back, he was a cracking little fighter and didn't use a lot of movement anyway so it'll be interesting to see if his boxing has been affected.
Maybe this will give some hope to Scott Dixon who suffered a similar attack not long after Magee.
Good luck to Eamonn :cool:

It'll be good to have him back. He was already talking about a Hatton rematch in the paper last week, although I don't see any point in it for Hatton.
