England's Martin Murray drew with WBA super middleweight champion Felix Sturm as the German retained his title in Mannheim on Friday night. The 29-year-old from St Helens produced a tremendous display, trading shot-for-shot with his opponent and going the full distance for only the second time in his 24 fights to date. Murray was awarded the fight 115-113 by American judge Ted Gimza but, with Jean-Francois Toupin scoring it 116-112 for Sturm and Pasquale Procopio unable to split the pair, he was left to hope for a rematch if he is to prise the belt off the 32-year-old.

One of the biggest robberies of the year Sturm pretty much dominated the fight

Macklin beat sturm the last time out too. Just another "protected euro bum", sturm is.

Excited to watch and score this fight. Sturm has been a good champion during his reign but I feel his time has come when i rewatched and scored the fight against Macklin, I had it a draw and felt that Sturm was lucky to secure that. If he could only grab a draw here against Murray, and can't win ...
