Rudy Markussen Backing Kessler To Defeat Magee

Rudy Markussen (37-3, 24 KOs) will face Daniel Regi (16-7, 8 KOs) in his comeback bout on Saturday night at Jyske Bank BOXEN. The Hardhitter was originally scheduled to take on Ferenc Hafner, but the Hungarian pulled out on short notice due to an eye injury. “I am ready to beat whoever steps into the ring with me,“ said Markussen. I have a lot to prove. I´ve really had a good preparation, it has been a long one, since the summer, I am feeling really sharp and I´m ready to prove that I can still do it.”

 

Markussen said he was still upset about losing to Magee in their clash in February.  “It´s sad for a boxer to lose like that,“ he stated. “It was my dream fight and I still think I could have beaten Magee. I am very sad about how things turned out.”

 

While Markussen starts his comeback on Saturday, Magee will defend his WBA Super-Middleweight Title against Mikkel Kessler. “I definitely think that Mikkel is going to win but he should not underestimate Magee,“ Markussen said. “Magee is a clever boxer. Against me, he walked backwards, but I think on Saturday he will jump right at Mikkel. I spoke to Mikkel about this fight and I gave him some advice. He needs to fight smart, use his long jab and his skills and move around. I think if he does that and doesn´t start fighting with Magee, I think he will stop him in the fifth or sixth round.”
