It was rumored for months but never actually on, and then it was officially off - but now there might be some hope for Brian Magee's defense of the WBA interim-super middleweight title against Danish star Rudy Markussen.
The date is now February 18 and the site somewhere in Denmark. But while Magee´s manager Pat Magee (no relation) has been advising the Irish press that it´s just about a done deal - Markussen's promoter Kalle Sauerland tells media in Denmark that negotiations were indeed off, but now there is hope for a possible deal.
If no deal is reached for a fight against Magee, then Markussen might fight for the WBA I/C title against Venezuelan Gusmyr Perdomo on the same date.
