About this deal

The fight was one of the most eagerly awaited fights in European boxing for many years and there had been doubts that the fight would ever take place due to the MEN being booked and then an injury to Hatton's knuckle. Koca is currently serving a minimum 14-year jail term for killing his estranged wife’s new boyfriend in May 2015. Contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced must be removed immediately from the article and its talk page, especially if potentially libelous. Some two years after the killing, Koca, then aged 34, would eventually plead guilty to the charge and would later be sentenced by Mr Justice Treacy to a minimum of 14 years in May 2017.

Still, I talk about him to my boys every day and I'll make sure no one ever forgets Uncle Eamonn – the best friend I will ever have. Within twelve months Magee had won two fights both by third round stoppages including winning the Irish Light Welterweight Title both the arranged rematch with Burke which was set for the 12 September 1999 at the York Hall, Bethnal Green in London again for the Commonwealth Light Welterweight Title. Magee’s legs stick out of his dressing gown and the lumps and scars provide graphic proof of that terrible beating. The Traitors' Mollie QUITS social media after viewers brand her 'stupid' for not rumbling winner Harry.

However, the prospect of a Magee dynasty was cruelly halted in 2015 when Eamonn Jnr was brutally stabbed to death in West Belfast in a premeditated attack. ITV's Love Island All Stars faces backlash from fans over complaints about the format: 'Streaming platforms have me spoiled!

Truth about Neighbours star Troy Beckwith's death at age 48 as family announce there will be no funeral: 'He fought a tough battle. S. and England and against a variety of opposition including journeymen such as Steve McGovern, Kevin McKillan and Karl Taylor as well as future NABF Welter and Light Middleweight title holder Teddy Reid. Upon his retirement, Eamonn turned his attention to training and oversaw the rise of his son s boxing career.This fantastic book shines a light on a highly intelligent, funny and self destructive man who's formative years and experiences seem hardly possible and it is incredible such things were occurring so very close to home. The Reid fight which took place at The Roxy, Boston, USA, was Magee's only loss on his early record which tallied to 11 win, 9 within the distance and 1 loss.

Jailing Koca for a minimum of 14 years, he said: 'I am satisfied that this was a pre-mediated and planned murder, which was both brutal and sustained and where the intention was to take life.Listen, I’ve been beaten with baseball bats, I’ve had my throat slashed, I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been exiled out of the country. Magee's sights were then set on a fight with Manchester's Ricky Hatton and continued his winning streak with a further ten straight wins, seven inside the distance, including wins over Kenya's Joseph Miyumo, Shea Neary and Jonathan Thaxton to line up a super-fight with Hatton.
