After being stopped by Gennady Golovkin in his last fight, it appears that Martin Murray has decided to move up from middleweight to super-middleweight.

Murray, who has a career record of 29-2-1 with 12 of those wins coming via way of knockout, is of the opinion that the extra poundage will benefit his career.

The fighter, who has fought unsuccessfully three times for a world title belt, reckons getting down to the middleweight is proving to be too draining now remarking about fighting at the new weight,

?Being at middleweight is affecting my power, my strength and speed.

?Those last couple of pounds take a bit away.

?When I go under 11 stone 12 I just feel like the power goes away from me a little bit. It?s always been that way, losing power trying to make middleweight.

It?s not a case of adding eight pounds on and getting bigger, it?s a case of not taking eight pounds off.

?This isn?t about me moving up. It?s about me fulfilling my potential and I?m going to be a better super-middleweight than I was a middleweight.?

It?ll be interesting to see who Murray is matched with as he is navigated towards a fourth world title bid.
