Former World champ takes McCarthy’s game to the next level

Brian Magee is both training partner and teacher to Tommy McCarhty, claims the British Cruiserweight title hopeful.

‘Big Tommy’ has linked up with Magee in recent months and believes the former Olympian has taken him to the next level.

The Belfast cruiserweight, who fights John Lewis Dickinson, live on Sky Sports this coming Saturday, claims he has learnt of the former British, European and World Champion, who also does a lot of the physical sessions with his new charge.

“After the Courtney Fry fight, things were stepping up with the training and that so Brian was going to come in and give Patsy (McAllister) a hand, but Patsy decided it was time for him to step back and let me and Brian work together,” McCarthy told Belfast Boxers.

“Brian has experience at every level from British right up to the World. His last fight wasn’t too long ago so things are still fresh in his mind. He joins in with the sessions as well so he is like a training partner as well as a trainer. He has given me a lot of knowledge and taken my game to the next level.”
