Murray Stumped on DeGale-Groves, Tabs Clev To Win

John Murray admits he is struggling to pick a winner in the huge domestic showdown between James DeGale and George Groves on May 21.

Ubeaten European lightweight champion Murray will come face-to-face with his next opponent, Kevin Mitchell, in the ring at The O2 in London before DeGale and Groves battle it out for the British and Commonwealth super-middleweight titles.

Manchester ace Murray is looking forward to seeing his London counterpart for the first time before they do it for real on July 9 at a venue to be confirmed.

"It adds more fire to the evening now that me and Mitchell will be in the ring together," he said.

"The crowd will be already be whipped up waiting to see DeGale and Groves in their big fight so it will be an electric atmosphere when me and Mitchell come face-to-face in the centre of the ring.

"It's a big British showdown that the fans have been waiting for and he's my last test in this country before I go on to a world title fight."

Murray now sees DeGale and Groves as a 50/50 call, but believes Nathan Cleverly can topple WBO world light-heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer on the same bill.

"When the fight was made I thought that it was going to be an easy night for DeGale, but as I've watched them over the past few weeks on TV I've been impressed with Groves and his composure and I'm right down the middle at the moment," added Murray.

"As the fight gets closer and in the build up next week, I'll then be able to make a prediction.

"I'm just looking forward to sitting back and watching these two fight it out and afterwards I'll be buzzing for my fight against Mitchell.

"As for Cleverly, this is a massive night for him. He's on the up and although Braehmer is the toughest he's ever faced I really think he can beat him.

"Cleverly has come on loads in the last few years and his speed and combinations - plus his power - will prove too much for Braehmer."

This is where I really want Groves to shut the big gob of Degale's. Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase - come on! In truth, I admit that Degale has the upper hand especially after seeing his recent performances.
