Brian Magee looks set to challenge Lucian Bute for the IBF super-middleweight title on March 19 in Canada.
The Showtime televised bout, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, looks likely to be confirmed early next week.
It had previously been assumed that Magee would challenge WBA champion Dimitri Sartison after he was installed as number one challenger for that title.
irish-boxing.com contacted Magee’s manager Pat Magee in relation to the speculation. Mr Magee would not comment on whether Magee vs Bute was a done deal but said an announcement on Brian’s future would be made in the near future.
