Belfast boxer Brian Magee is set to challenge IBF super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute for his world title in Canada on 19 March.

Official confirmation of the contest is expected on Tuesday morning.

Magee had been expected to fight for the WBA version of the title in January after being named as a mandatory challenger to Dimitry Sartison.

In September, Magee made the first defence of his European title in Dublin by stopping Armenian Roman Aramian.
