Magee vs Markussen Showdown in Talks For January
By Chris LaBate
WBA interim-super middleweight champion Brian Magee (35-4-1, 24KOs) is possibly going to face Rudy Markussen (36-2, 23KOs) in Denmark in late January, says manager Pat Magee. The winner gets the mandatory shot at WBA champion Karoly Balzsay. Magee's manager is working out the details. With or without Markussen, Magee is going to fight at the end of January.
“Brian will be fighting at the end of January, no matter what,” said Pat to Newsletter. “We received a proposal from Sauerland Promotion which we found acceptable. We agreed terms and now we are just working on a date suitable to television. The fight looks set to take place the end of January. But if for whatever reason, that fight fails to make it, we will then look to get Brian in against Balzsay."
