Jamie Barboza Defends Against Brian Magee on July 30th
Lisburn boxer Brian Magee will have his second world title fight in four months after agreeing to face WBA interim champion Jamie Barboza.
The fight will take place in Costa Rica on Saturday 30th July.
Magee's last fight was a losing effort in March against classy IBF title holder Lucian Bute, who stopped the 35-year-old with a body shot in the 10th round.
31-year-old Barboza, who is best knon as a light-middleweight fighter, has lost four times in his 21-fight professional career.
Magee has also been defeated four times, but has arguably the better professional pedigree, having competed in 39 bouts.
