Murray is Inspired By Family To Shock Sergio Martinez

MARTIN MURRAY says he’s going to keep his feet on the ground even if he defeats Sergio Martinez in Argentina this spring.

The St Helens man faces the world’s best middleweight for his WBC crown at the home stadium of Velez Sarsfield on April 27.

Martinez is widely regarded as one of the top three pound for pound fighters on the planet, so a victory for Murray would likely catapult him to superstar status.

However, he has no real interest in glitz and glamour and just wants to secure the financial future of his family.

“There’s stardom to be had, but for me it’s all about providing for my wife and kids,” he said.

“Boxing’s is my job so it’s not just about looking good, it’s about winning things so I can make sure my family has the best life I can provide for them.

“Winning this will make me the number one middleweight in the world and set up some more big opportunities.

“If I go on and beat Martinez I’ll be in some massive fights which will secure our future and my legacy.”

Martinez is so popular in Argentina that last year he was voted as the country’s best sportsman ahead of footballing wizard Lionel Messi and around 50,000 fans are expected to turn out for the fight with Murray.

Murray knows he’s going to be up against it in front of a partisan crowd, but he believes he has the tools to score an upset which would rival Lloyd Honeyghan’s surprise 1986 victory over Donald Curry.

“With me being so much of an underdog it’ll be a shock to a lot of people if I win, but it won’t be a shock to me,” he said.

“This is a fight I feel I can win and we’ll be working on a plan in the next few weeks to work out how to beat Martinez.”

i think an aspect of this fight that has me excited for it is to see how martinez looks after surgery and at 38. he can say he feels good in training, but we'll see how good he looks and how his knee holds up on fight night. hopefully it does, haha. murray also sounds like he's coming to win, not...

Good luck to him. I expect a very electric crowd and Martinez to come out and prove a point in front of his hometown crowd. Sergio by TKO/KO in round 7.

I wish Murray all the best in this fight but unless he stops Martinez he will not win this one, Martinez is above all in this division and when he needs to step agear he normally does plus in Argentina there is no way he is going to be under pre-pared - Good Luck Murray you are going need it.
