Looking ahead to the WBA world super-middleweight fight, the 37-year-old told UTV he wouldn't still be competing if he didn't think he could win.

"Everybody knows Mikkel Kessler's big fighter ever and one of the best in that weight over the last decade," Magee said.

"There is plenty to fight for. I want to be the world champion he wants to be the first time world champion so it is a big night.

"I am getting better and am in good nick and everything is good at the minute, I would not still be fighting now if I didn't think I could still win."

Kessler has a record of 47 contests with only two defeats - against Joe Calzaghe and Andre Ward - and 34 of his wins were by KO. He is also a former undefeated WBC champion.

Magee is the WBA interim World Champion and Number 1 with the WBA and his record of 41 contests and four defeats includes 25 KOs.

The fight will take place in Denmark on 8 December.
