John Murray: Mitchell Will Have Nowhere To Go in Defeat

John Murray has vowed to continue Manchester's sporting success - and put a smile back on the red half of the city.
 
The former British and European lightweight champion takes on big London rival Kevin Mitchell on July 9th at London's ExCeL in a mouthwatering clash, live on Sky Sports 1HD. 

The Vacant WBO Intercontinental crown will be on the line - as well as Murray's undefeated record - and there is a potential world title shot for the winner.
 
Mancunian ace Murray has promised victory to follow up a season of plaudits for both Manchester City and Manchester Utd, even if the latter were out-played by Barcelona on Saturday night at Wembley.
 
"The city has had a great 12 months football wise," said massive Man City fan Murray.
 
"City were brilliant in winning the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League.
 
"And you've got to take your hat off to United for winning the league again and getting to the final of the Champions League.
 
"Now it is up to me to make it a great summer for Manchester as well.
 
"With Ricky Hatton retiring, we need a world class fighter because Manchester is the best fight city in the country.
 
"With the football season over, I want the Blues and Red fans to come down to London and support me.
 
"My fight against Mitchell is the perfect opportunity for me to showcase my talents and really make a name for myself and show that I'm ready for the world title.
 
"He's going to putting everything on the line as he will have nowhere to go if he losses so I'm sure he's going to come out all guns blazing, and it will be a real war.
 
"I've also got to go into his backyard, but I know that all of Manchester will be behind me, and that's a great boost going into the biggest fight of my career."
 
Tickets for North 'n South are available now, priced at £40, £50, £75, £100, £150 and £200, from 0844 844 0444 or ticketmaster.co.uk
