Martin Murray Warns Golovkin's Trainer: I'm No Macklin

By Edward Chaykovsky

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.

“Abel Sanchez can talk all he wants but I’m not Matthew Macklin or Golovkin’s past opponents. Look at Golovkin’s opponents. He was never going to be pushed. He was always going to come through. I rate him though and he’s a good fighter but he’s not fought anyone like myself. That’s when you’ll see the best of me. Me vs. Golovkin would be a hell of a fight," Murray told livefight.com.

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;13533610]As I said above. Murray said in an interview with Live Fight, “I’ve not been told of an offer. A date of November 2 is the first I’ve heard. I’ve not been told anything. If they said they want to…

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;13532332]Murray is free to talk, because he feels he's somehow "safe" -- as he has "visa issues" which prevents him from coming to the U.S. Just wait and see if Murray would eventually try to lure GGG in the UK.…
