Brian Magee and Mikkel Kessler avoid trash talk ahead of bout

Brian Magee and Mikkel Kessler speak of their respect for each other ahead of their WBA super-middleweight title bout on 8 December.

The Belfast man will travel to Denmark to fight Dane Kessler for the vacant 'regular' WBA title.

Southpaw Magee, 37, has defeated Danes Mads Larsen and Rudy Markussen in Denmark in recent years but Kessler has vowed to beat the Northern Irishman.

Andre Ward, who is the WBA's 'super' champion, defeated Kessler in 2009 but the Dane responded to defeat Carl Froch a year later.
