Brian Magee claims that he needs to be "ready for anything" when he faces Jamie Barboza in the ring.

Brian Magee has claimed that he faces a tough contest against Jaime Barboza as he attempts to win the WBA Interim super-middleweight title.

The Northen Irish boxer, who lost his IBF super-middleweight title in March, has been preparing for the fight in Panama City.

"Barboza is strong, tough and aggressive and I have to be ready for anything," Magee told BBC Sport.

"This is a big fight for both of us. I have to try to win this title and then move on to bigger and better things."

The 36-year-old goes head to head with Barboza in Costa Rica on Saturday.
