John Murray: I Can Beat Rios, Marquez, Katsidis, Soto

European Lightweight Champion John Murray has got the 135lb division running scared - and a few fans as well after his latest photo shoot.
 
Mancunian Murray's next defence - against Karim El Ouazghari on April 2 live on Sky Sports 1HD - sees him mocked up as Jack Torrance from the epic horror movie The Shining, with the York Hall bill titled "Here's Johnny!".
 
The fight will be the first with new promoter Frank Warren, who is aiming to guide Murray to a world title by the end of the year.
 
"It was great to do the photo and I'd been practicing Jack Nicholson's crazy look for a few days in front of the mirror at home," said Murray.
 
"Nicholson is one of my favourite actors, although it was a bit scary how alike we seem to look.
 
"We have been inundated with request from all over the country for the posters and the York Hall will become a terrordome of Murray supporters on the night.
 
"April 2 will definitely be a case of Here's Johnny because I want to make a big impact in London before I hit the world scene.
 
"I'm believe I can beat the best in the division, Humberto Soto, Juan Manuel Marquez, Brandon Rios, Miguel Acosta, Michael Katsidis, I want them all and it will be scary the way I go through them one by one.
 
"I feel like 2011 is going to be a massive year for me, and I'm all set for an assault at world level."

All the guys he mentioned have proven themselves at a world class level. Who the hell is John Murray?

Murray! should fight Brandon Rios and then talk all that garvage.

Comment by Hitman Hodgson on 03-09-2011

I think he'd give anyone in the lightweight division a hard fight. I think Marquez would be too good for him, but he'd certainly have a chance against Katsidis. Now that would be a war.
