Brian Magee
Brian Magee retained his European super-middleweight title strap by impressively out boxing and then stopping Roman Aramyan at the national Stadium in Dublin last night.
.
The Belfast boxer, who won the vacant European strap on away turf in Aarhus, Denmark, when he stopped Mads Larsen in seven rounds earlier this year, was just too much for Aramyan too strong.
.
Armenian challenger Aramyan did not have the class to take the belt from Magee but did survive eight rounds of punishment before failing to emerge for the ninth.
.
Magee now wants a world title fight against current super-middleweight champion Dimitri Sartison of Germany.
.
“I’m number one in the division and hopefully now I’ve put myself in a position to get it,” he said.
Aramian never troubled Magee in a one-sided fight and only a strong chin kept him going until the ninth round at Dublin’s National Stadium.
.
“The strategy was to bide my time and keep the pressure on,” added Magee.
.
“He is tough – I hit him with everything and he still kept coming.
.
“You saw what the European title meant to him, every round he gave it his all.”
