IT’S normally the bride who keeps people waiting when it comes to weddings – but Martin Murray has punched a hole through that argument!

His determination to land the WBA world middleweight crown has forced him to leave his fiancee Gemma finalising all the arrangements for their wedding next Wednesday.

St Helens slugger Murray, 29, challenges Felix Sturm for the title in Mannheim, Germany, tonight while Gemma and kids Amelia and Archie are on a luxury Caribbean cruise.

He will join them, plus other members of the family and friends, when the ship docks in Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean on Monday.

That will be just 48 hours before he and Gemma walk down the aisle – and he is hoping that he will be world champion when the big moment arrives.

The British and Commonwealth champ said: “We couldn’t change the holiday because it was booked a year ago and it would have been impossible for people to cancel having saved up so much money.

“Myself and a few others fly from Frankfurt to Amsterdam and on to Curacao where we arrive on Monday morning and board the ship.

“Gemma has been in touch with the travel company and there is Sky Sports on board. She hopes to see the fight but it all depends whether it is in satellite range at the time.”

Murray, who has won all of his 23 professional fights, added: “I get married on the Wednesday and the mood of the wedding and holiday will be determined by what happens in the Sturm fight!”

And he added: “I go to bed thinking of Sturm and wake up thinking of him. One day this week I even woke up at 5am thinking about the contest – I have been ready for this chance for nine months.”

Murray is bidding to become the first world champion promoted by Ricky Hatton and is a huge underdog to defeat 32-year-old Sturm.

PREDICTION: The champ has only lost three of his 39 fights and, while Murray has a puncher’s chance, my vote goes to Sturm around the eighth.

"I go to bed thinking of Sturm, and wake up thinking of him" Easy there marty, Gemma might get jealous.
