Magee to defend against Kessler

Prior to Saturday’s Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn, Sauerland Event will announce that Mikkel Kessler (45-2, 34 KOs) will challenge Brian Magee (36-4-1, 25 KOs) for the WBA super-middleweight world championship in Denmark later this year. The date and the venue will be finalized shortly.

Magee is convinced he will claim another prominent Danish scalp.

Brian Magee: “I am ready for the hat-trick of KOs. I´ve stopped Larsen, I´ve stopped Markussen and now it’s Kessler´s turn.”

Mikkel Kessler: “It takes something to come to Denmark and knock out both Mads and Rudy. But his winning streak will end when we meet. I am very keen to be world champion again and Magee cannot prevent this from happening.”
