Magee forced to give up title

12 March 2009 – By Mark Doyle

Brian Magee has been stripped of his British super-middleweight title after being forced to pull out of his scheduled defence against Tony Dodson on March 28.

Magee, who claimed the belt with an eighth-round knockout of Stevie McGuire last December, has been sidelined with a back injury sustained in training.

As a result, Dodson will now take on fellow Liverpudlian Tony Quigley for the vacant title.

Quigley had already been scheduled to fight on the bill, against English champion Paul David.
