Brian Magee impresses in Dublin win over Roman Aramian

Brian Magee talks about the future after his European super-middleweight win over Roman Aramian

Brian Magee comfortably retained his European super-middleweight belt in Dublin after Roman Aramian failed to come out for the ninth round.

The 35-year-old from Belfast dominated his Armenian opponent from the start in an impressive display.

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."
