Photos: Murray is Denied, as Felix Sturm Secures a Draw

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.
