Belfast's Brian Magee beats Barboza for interim crown
Last updated on .From the section Boxing
Northern Ireland's Brian Magee easily outpointed Jaime Barboza to capture the fringe interim WBA super-middleweight crown in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Magee dominated the little-known Barboza, a career light-middleweight, using his jab and body shots to control the action.
It was Magee's first fight since losing to IBF title-holder Lucian Bute in Montreal in March.
Magee, 36, could now land a second shot at a world title.
