Since Carl Froch beat Mikkel Kessler, at the O2 Arena, there have been numerous British fighters inferring that they should be given a shot at Froch?s super-middleweight world title.

Amongst those already having staked their claims are James DeGale, George Groves and Nathan Cleverly.

However, a fourth British fighter, in the shape of Martin Murray has stepped forward to suggest he?s the most viable British opponent out there for Froch.

Murray who last time out lost a world title fight against the WBC king Sergio Gabriel Martinez believes he can make the step up in weight and give Froch a real war, having remarked to the tabloid press,

?I can do middleweight comfortably and that?s still the weight I want to fight at, but a Froch fight is one I?d be more than open to.?

?I believe styles make fights and I think me and Carl Froch would put on an absolute war.?

?If Carl is going to fight another British fighter then I don?t see why my name isn?t in the mix.. From the American TV side of things with me now being known on HBO after the Martinez fight.?

?There?s obviously George Groves and James DeGale but they?re not yet proven at world level.?


Murray may have a point but is it right for fighters to target fights at a weight they?re yet to fight at when there are up and coming fighters, like those already mentioned, who are manipulating their careers towards getting a title fight they believe is their rightful destiny and pugilistic right?
