Joe Murray Inks Promotional Pact With Frank Warren
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Frank Warren is delighted to announce that he has signed exciting and undefeated featherweight talent Joe Murray to a promotional agreement.

Manchester ace Murray, 26, will make his debut for his new promoter at Wembley Arena on Saturday 20th April on the undercard of Nathan Cleverlys WBO World Light-Heavyweight title defence against Robin Krasniqi that also features Commonwealth Super-Featherweight Champion Liam Walsh and Dereck Chisora, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

A stellar amateur career saw Murray - the younger brother of former British, Commonwealth and European Lightweight Champion, John, who Warren also promotes - win bronze at the 2007 World Amateur Championships in Chicago and the following year he was part of Team GB in Beijing along with Billy Joe Saunders, James DeGale and David Price.

He turned professional in 2009 and has racked up an unbeaten 12 fight record with five stoppages plus capturing the IBF Youth Featherweight title. Murrays second professional fight was at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the undercard of Ricky Hattons fight against Manny Pacquiao.

Murrays last fight was an eight-round points win over Jose Luis Graterol in February last year and he is now keen to get his career moving again, but for now he just wants to get back into action.

Im really happy to join Frank Warren and his organisation and this starts a new chapter in my career. Franks the best in the business, he got my brother John a world title opportunity and Im sure he can guide me to a world title as well. Im just really hungry to get back in the ring and fight right away. Ive been out of the ring a long time so now its all system go for Wembley and Ill be fighting again soon after so Im happy that Im active again. Said Murray.

Hall Of Fame promoter Warren added, Joe looks like an exciting prospect and Im looking forward to developing his career further towards a British title shot and beyond. The main thing is to get him out in action soon which is why hes been added to the big Wembley Arena show and hell follow that up with another fight soon after. These are exciting times for Joe and well be looking to do big things with him.

Decent prospect for Warren to re-bound with. Needs to get a couple more decent prospects / solid names back in his stable, and moreover, match them in decent match-ups. Given Hatton has no tv deal, you'd have thought some of his e.g. Quigg are ripe for picking.
