Golovkin vs. Murray Deal Reached For February 1
By Edward Chaykovsky
British contender Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11KOs) indicates that he reached an agreement to face WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (28-0, 25KOs) on February 1 in Monte Carlo. Murray will first stay sharp with a keep-busy fight on November 23rd on the Froch-Groves undercard in Mancherster.
It will be Murray's third shot at a title, with going to a controversial draw decision with Felix Sturm in 2011 and then losing a close decision to Sergio Martinez in April. According to Daily Mail, Murray is expected to earn around $500,000 (£312,000) for the shot.
Golovkin has been unable to face Murray in the United States, due to Murray's inability to obtain a visa. Murray had been scheduled to face Garth Wood on December 11th, but the fight was canceled a few days ago. Golovkin has a huge 2013 - with knockout wins over Nobuhiro Ishida, Curtis Stevens, Gabe Rosado and Matthew Macklin.
