Martinez has fought tough opponents for not great pay for years, he's now in a position to look for fights that make more money. Like it or not, Murray going to Argentina will probably make him more than GGG.
Uh no he wasn't
And so what if Murray fought to a draw with Sturm? What does that mean? Golovkin has actually had American exposure with an impressive knockout win on HBO. I don't see how Murray makes him more money.
