Martin Murray Eyes Miguel Cotto, Confident of Win
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Britain's WBC silver middleweight champion, Martin Murray (28-1-1, 12KOs), is enjoying a period of rest with his family before he decides his next step...but it's likely going to be a giant one.

On June 21st he defeated, Max Bursak, by unanimous decision in a great fight held in Monte Carlo, Monaco, conquering the WBC silver belt. Murray, aged 33, wants to fight for the full WBC Title, which is in the grasp of Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs), and the British fighter is sure that he can defeat him.

Cotto captured the title earlier this month with a one-sided destruction of Sergio Martinez, who won a close and some felt controversial unanimous decision over Murray last April.

"I know I can beat Cotto. He looked great defeating Martinez, but I have more skill. He has in his hands the WBC belt, which I've always wanted. I'm sure Cotto and I would serve up a great fight," stressed Murray.

Murray thinks he has more skill than Cotto? This guy is delusional. Murray has the size advantage and that's pretty much it but Cotto has more than enough power to keep Murray away and respect his power.

On paper Cotto mops Murray, but I will be cheering for Murray hard. WAR MURRAY!!! :boxing:

[QUOTE=armindo54]Why would Cotto fight Murray. Cotto is a prize fighter who is nearing the end of his career. So he is going for the biggest and most financially rewarding fights possible. If Martinez was the B side, Murray is the Z side. He couldn't draw enough fans to fill a phone booth![/QUOTE...

He doesn't deserve this fight. Golovkin does. Also Murray wouldn't bring any money. Golovkin is slowly turning into a draw and would much more sense financially.

It's Rubio or nothing. I would love to see Rubio fight back if the WBC pass him over like Cuello did. Just the slightest talk of lawsuit and the WBC will seize up an do whatever Rubio wants
