BoxingScene.com has been advised that Hatton Promotions and Lou DiBella have started conversations to match middleweights Andy Lee (27-1, 19KOs) and Martin Murray (23-0-1, 10KOs) on March 17th at New York's Madison Square Garden. If a deal is reached, the fight would become an HBO televised co-feature to Sergio Martinez's defense of the WBC Diamond title against Matthew Macklin.

Lee stayed busy in 2011; defeating unbeaten Craig McEwan, veteran Alex Bunema and avenging his only career defeat by winning a decision over Brian Vera. Murray, the Commonwealth/British champion, displayed his level of skill by fighting WBA champion Felix Sturm to a twelve round draw last week in Germany.

"What's better than an Irishman and a British boxer going to war on St. Patty's Day? I think it's a great fight," DiBella said.

St Patty's day? Is that a bit like St Paddy's day?

Andy Lee needs to step it up. This guy has been in "prospect" mode for far too long. Canelo, JCC Jr, Andy Lee, and Co. are all life long prospects.

[QUOTE=daggum]i doubt that even comes off and because this will be on hbo. if he can beat another hbo hypester they might decide to turn him into one of their hbo hypesters or at least try to get martinez to figth him. even if pirog beats geale so what. no one will see it or care and martinez wil...

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless]If Pirog beats Geale, he'll be a unified champ. In addition ring magazine currently has Geale at #1 so beating him will make Pirog the highest rank middleweight after Martinez. Unless Martinez is able to secure a big fight at 154 (unlikely), Pirog will be in a very good p...
