John Murray: "I'm Ready For Anyone, Even Marquez!"

John Murray is hoping a solid win on April 2 propels him towards a shot at long-term WBC lightweight champion Humberto Soto.

Murray is currently ranked number two with the WBC.

And a KO victory against Spanish champion Karim El Ouazghari could boost his rating even further.

The pair clash at Bethnal Green's York Hall in Murray's first fight for promoter Frank Warren.

And undefeated Mancunian Murray is also looking to boost his Ring Magazine rating of number six.

"I'd love a world title shot this year," said current European champion Murray.

"I'm not worried about facing any of the champions out there.

"Soto's got a great record but if I want to win a world title then I'm going to have to beat the best.

"I've worked very hard for my rating with the WBC, and I want to get in a position where I can force a fight as mandatory challenger.

"I really believe that I am ready for anyone in the world right now, including Ring Magazine number one Juan Manuel Marquez."

John Murry aint nothing but a domestic leauge fighter, World level he aint got a chance his already had 30+ fights and he aint got a half decent name on that... He just another thaxton.

[QUOTE=knockoutkid;10278784]Vazquez is beatable and not a hard puncher.[/QUOTE] If the opponent of Vazquez is John Murray. Then, no. Vazquez is not beatable.

I can accept the fact John Murray has big dreams but he hasn't been anywhere near world level yet. He's barely fought at european level. How he is ranked number 6 by ring magazine is beyond me!

Vazquez is beatable and not a hard puncher.
