What lies in store for Martin Murray?

On the same nigh Paul Smith is looking to bring the WBO super-middleweight world title back to the UK, Martin Murray will be looking to bring the WBA Super world middleweight belt back to Manchester.

Whilst Smith will be taking on Arthur Abraham in Berlin, a tough task some might say, Murray, some might say, is facing an almost impossible task when he takes on the formidable Gennady Golovkin in Monte Carlo.

In fact the Golovkin camp are looking at their fighter not only beating Murray but doing it in style by knocking Murray out.

Golovkin?s trainer Abel Sanchez, talking about his fighter who has a record that reads 31- with 28 wins coming by way of knockout, has remarked to the media,

?He?s got 19 knockouts in a row. He?ll have 20 if everything goes well on the 21st. We?re taking him [Murray] very, very serious. If Gennady disposes with him it won?t be because Murray wasn?t that.?

Murray is no mug though and his record of 29-11 with 12 coming by way of knockout, will stand him in good stead but if it would be something of a shock for Paul Smith to return from Berlin with a world title then Martin Murray doing something similar would stand the world of boxing on its head.
