John Murray-Kevin Mitchell Set For Cleverly-Braehmer

New Frank Warren signing John Murray gets a big fight straight away - he takes on Kevin Mitchell on the undercard of Nathan Cleverly against Jurgen Braehmer.

The European lightweight champion will make the second defence of his title against Mitchell in a potential classic.

Mitchell hasn't fought since losing to Michael Katsidis in a WBO lightweight title challenge last May.

After the fight, it emerged that he had not trained properly for the biggest opportunity of his career, and he has been sidelined since with eye trouble.

But his shot at Murray - which is likely to take place on April 2 at Wembley Arena - represents an unexpected chance to get back to the top.

However his Mancunian rival will be determined to make a big statement, and knows a world title shot of his own could be on the cards should he win.

Murray, who currently has the longest unbeaten streak in British boxing, is ranked number three by the WBC, and number 13 by the IBF.

He has a 30-0 (18) record, and at 26 is probably approaching his prime.

[QUOTE=MXboxingfan]Kevin Mitchell was focused on training. The whole "Kevin Mitchell was not training properly" thing is just an excuse meant to protect Mitchell's popularity.[/QUOTE] But we know he didnt prepare properly and had his mind on other things

Guarantee this fight falls through a couple of weeks before the date and both fighters are matched up with bums. Just saying.
