Martin Murray Signs With Matchroom

Matchroom have confirmed the signing of three-time world middleweight title challenger Martin Murray, who will make his debut at super-middleweight on June 26th. Now he has a new weightclass and fight date. He will be moving up to super middleweight division & first fight has already been scheduled in Liverpool on June 26th, with no opponent named at this.

"I've fought the very best at middleweight and now I'm ready to do the same at super middle. It's a hot division and domestically can throw up some absolute wars. James DeGale did great to capture a world title and I'd love that fight later this year. George Groves is also challenging for a title and again, that's a fight I'd relish." - Martin Murray

Murray is coming off an 11th round TKO loss when he faced Gennady Golovkin this past February. He also has controversial decisions to Sergio Martinez in 2013 & a draw to Felix Sturm in 2011.
