Brandon Rios The Target of John Murray, Kevin Mitchell

John Murray and Kevin Mitchell could be fighting for a shot at WBA world lightweight champion Brandon Rios when they meet next month.

The two British stars lock horns in a blockbusting domestic match-up at London's Excel Arena on July 9 (live on Sky Sports 1 HD). Meanwhile Rios defends his belt against Urbano Antillon in California on the very same night.

Promoter Frank Warren is now set for talks with Bob Arum aimed at potential future clash between Rios and the Murray/Mitchell winner.

Manchester star Murray says he's ready for that, claiming: "I'd love to fight Rios, he's a class fighter and it would be fireworks between us. I've always wanted him, it wouldn't be an easy fight, but facing him for the world title would bring the best out of me and I reckon I've got the style to beat him.

"I'm unbeaten, I've done everything asked of me on the domestic and European stage so the next stop for me is the world title. Mitchell is in my way so I've got to destroy him first before I can get to Rios."

Mitchell meanwhile is fighting for redemption after that failed world title bid against Aussie whirlwind Michael Katsidis at Upton Park last May.

He said, "Smashing Murray up is the only thing on my mind at the moment and once I've done that I'll talk about Rios,"

"Frank is the man to produce the world title opportunities, as he proved by getting me Katsidis last year, so I've no doubts that he could get Rios, who's a great fighter,"

"I let a lot of people down last year so first I'm going to repay them by knocking Murray out, then if a world title fight against Rios is next then I'll do a job on him."

Rios is going to have a tough fight with Antillon. That is going to probably be a fight of the year. There is so much hatred and anger between both of them, that no one is leaving that fight unhurt. Rios might not be available for Murray or Mitchell any time soon.

He'd end Murray's career. Mitchell is better but he'd destroy him too. Great fighter Rios. He could come over here and destroy both of them.
