Brian Magees European super-middleweight title clash against Mads Larsen has been confirmed for January 30 in Aarhus, Denmark.
Although the bout had long been mooted it was only this week that contracts were signed. As well as the opportunity of picking up the vacant EBU crown and gate-crashing the world scene, former British and IBO champion Magee will earn the biggest purse of his professional career after purse bids of over 300,000 were lodged.
Magee is hoping to establish himself as the latest in a recent glut of Irish European Champions following on from Matthew Macklin and Paul McCloskeys recent successes.
