Middleweight contender Martin Murray (25-1, 11KOs) warned Abel Sanchez, trainer of IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golobkin (27-0, 24KOs), that he presents a much tougher challenge than Golovkin's opponent from last Saturday night, Matthew Macklin. Golovkin stopped Macklin in three easy rounds.
Murray lost a very close decision to Sergio Martinez in April, a fight where Martinez was dropped and suffered numerous injuries that are going to keep him out until 2014.
Golovkin is interested in facing Murray on November 2. Murray has denied reports that he already received an offer for the contest, but he feels very confident that he can burst Sanchez's prediction of an easy KO win.
ďAbel Sanchez can talk all he wants but Iím not Matthew Macklin or Golovkinís past opponents. Look at Golovkinís opponents. He was never going to be pushed. He was always going to come through. I rate him though and heís a good fighter but heís not fought anyone like myself. Thatís when youíll see the best of me. Me vs. Golovkin would be a hell of a fight," Murray told livefight.com.
