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.

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

This is the guy I was talking about that I favored over Golovkin if he can take Golovkins punches not Matthew Macklin I had the two fighters mixed up because I don't follow the sport like I used to and both fighters names begin with an M and end with an M.

Murray gets stopped, he will last longer than Macklin did but the way GGG cut off the ring was amazing, he gets a lot of credit for his power but his footwork really impressed me! Cant see Martinez beating GGG either, if murray put him down twice GGG will put him down once.... and martinez won...

[QUOTE=MDPopescu]As I said above. Murray said in an interview with Live Fight, ďIíve not been told of an offer. A date of November 2 is the first Iíve heard. Iíve not been told anything. If they said they want to fight me then thatís fair enough but Iíve still got visa issues to sort outÖ"[/QUOT...

[QUOTE=MDPopescu]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. If I shall hear this, I'll believe he really wants to take the fight.[/QUOTE...
