Now campaigning as a super-middleweight after three failed attempts at a world middleweight title, the Manchester fighter took a step closer to a fight with the WBO champion Arthur Abraham last night.

On the under-card of the Warrington v Brunker fight, in Leeds, Murray was matched against the Columbian fighter, Jose Miguel Torres.

To say it was a one-sided fight is an understatement.

Although Torres lasted until the fifth round before he was stopped, Murray had the Colombian down on the canvas in the first round and also caused enough damage on his opponent for a further five counts to be administered by the referee.

A good work-out it may have been for Murray but whether he learnt anything that will help him in tackling the warrior that is Abraham remains debatable.
