Martin Murray., Rocky Fielding To Return, July 12 In Liverpool

By Elliot Foster

Martin Murray will be back in the ring in a few weeks' time.

The St Helens man has been out of action since suffering defeat at the hands of Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam.

Murray was on the wrong end of a decision against the French-based Cameroonian at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office in the UK.


“I’ve been keeping myself fit and doing a lot of training,” said Murray, who will accompany gym-mate Rocky Fielding in returning on the July 12 card at the Eventim Olympia in Liverpool.

“I’m pushing myself and I know I’m not done physically but mentally, I needed a rest. Now I’m fully refreshed.

“This short time away from the sport has done me a world of good because I’ve had time to sit down and think about what I really wanted. I’m back and I’m just going to enjoy fighting again.

“I went back to the gym yesterday and I genuinely loved being back. I’m not done – I had one off fight and now I’m coming back. I can’t wait to get out there in Liverpool.”

The former WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight champion, Fielding, has been out since last December.

Fielding was ousted by Saul Alvarez at Madison Square Garden, exclusively live on DAZN Stateside and Sky Sports in the UK.

But after recovering from his second defeat in the paid code, the former British, Commonwealth and WBC International champion will be back on July 12.

“I’m absolutely buzzing to be back,” said Fielding. “There’s no place like home and the Olympia is really where my career started – I wonPrizefighter there and then the English and British titles there too.”

Jazza Dickens is on the card in a clash against Australia's Nathaniel May for the vacant IBF European featherweight crown and further additions will be revealed in due course.

I'm sure he said he retired?

I like Murray's heart, but it's time to hang up the gloves. He's pushing 37 and is clearly past it.
