John Murray-Kevin Mitchell is Finalized: A War Expected
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

 Hot on the heels of DeGale V Groves, Promoter Frank Warren will follow it up with yet another mouth-watering domestic showdown that the whole country wants to see - John Murray versus Kevin Mitchell.
 
The two best Lightweights in the country have now both signed up for a summer showdown with London expected to play host.
 
Former British, Commonwealth and European Champion Murray, 31-0-0 (18), boasts the longest unbeaten run in British Boxing and sees Mitchell as the last hurdle in his quest to challenge for a world title challenge. Essex man Mitchell, 31-1-0 (23), sees Mancunian rival as his ticket back to the big time after his disappointment at Upton Park and knows another defeat could end his own world title aspirations. .
 
Murray said today; "I thought Mitchell had bottled it once and for all when he turned down the opportunity to fight me last month, but I am glad he has finally put pen to paper as this fight has been a long time coming and, apart from the world title, this is the only meaningful challenge left for me in the UK."
 
Dagenham's Mitchell, himself a former British and Commonwealth Champion, said today; "Murray's done well but he hasn't faced me yet and, if he had, we wouldn't keep hearing about his unbeaten record, I was 31-0 too with more stoppages than him, until I lost out in my 32nd fight which he will too. Personally, I hope this fight takes place in the East End so I can show my legions of fans that last year was a one off an Kevin Mitchell is back.
 
The date, and the site of the fight will be announced soon and a sell-out is expected for the North v South showdown.
 
Promoter Frank Warren added; "Like DeGale V Groves this is another fantastic fight that I am so pleased to be able to stage this summer. Finally the big fights are being made and like the winner DeGale V Groves, the winner can look forward to a world title challenge in the new season. This is a real 50/50 match and I salute both guys for signing up for it. I am working on a date and venue for the show and hope to announce this and, of course, a top quality undercard very soon."

Should be a great scrap,if Mitchell turns up id expect him too win handily,but if its the Mitchell from the Katz fight then Murray has a very good chance of beating him

Great news, Cant help but feel that Mitchell now jump at the fight after sitting ringside and watching Murray struggled in his last fight, But credit to Warren for putting together this fight at this stage of this boxers careers.

If Mitchell prepears properly he wins. Murrays a bum.

[QUOTE=alza1988]Should be good i'm sort of edging toward's Mitchell though but could be 50/50 .It's sort of hard to say but Lee McAlister was outboxing Murray that's why I think Mitchell maybe take this ( Prescott fight ) Even though Murray's big and applies the pressure I don't think anywhere n...

Great fight. Hope Mitchell beats his ass. I hope Mitchell bounces back from the poor performance agaisnt kats. He was beat up big time there. I dont like John murrey. He is so overated, he's looked worse and worse every single time he has stepped up in class. Do any of you guys know where this fi...
