Murray Doesn't See Any Weaknesses in Sergio Martinez

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA interim-champion Martin Murray (25-0-1, 11KOs) is not bothered that WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs) will have the home advantage on April 27th when they clash in Argentina.

Murray has seen several of Martinez's fights and can't find any specific weakness to expose. He doesn't even see the age of Martinez [37-years-old] as playing a role in the fight.

"To fight in Argentina, it's a big task in front of me, but it's a task that I'm realy looking forward to. By far [Martinez is the biggest challenge of my career]. He is a great fighter. Anyone who knows boxing knows that he's a great fighter. I know that I'm going to have to put in a great performance to beat him. I don't think he's got any [weaknesses]. The only thing you can say is his age, but he doesn't fight like his age. He fights like he's 21, so it's a tough task," Murray said.

Martinez predicts a victory by knockout, within eight rounds, but Murray is not taking his prediction seriously.

"What can I say about that? To be honest with you, that was just done for the press. He is a very experienced fighter and I know that he'll be prepared to go twelve hard rounds," Murray said.

The best fight on Murray's resume is a draw with Sturm....this won't go the distance and Murray will be KOed. I see a mid-late rounds stoppage for Sergio. As always, anything can happen in boxing but I don't see it.

This is actually the smartest way to talk about your opponent. 1.) You can make them over-confident. That could lead to all sorts of problems. 2.) You don't look like a hypocrite if you beat them and then start saying…

Murray doesn't sound like a fighter that thinks he has a chance of winning. I didn't either, but its sad to hear a fighter proverbially throw in the towel before the opening bell.

[QUOTE=RapidFire26;12854224]How could you know if he was going to be KTFO? He kept on fighting and did not get knocked out after he was knocked down. He probably should have clinched or better yet not fought as aggressively in the…
