Martin Murray vs. Sladan Janjanin Set, Nov 15 In Liverpool

Martin Murray has been handed his next opponent.

The former four-time world title challenger was last in action at the Eventim Olympia in Liverpool in July.

Murray, who outpointed Rui Manuel Pavanito over 10 rounds, exclusively live on iFL TV, is set to return to the same venue where he triumphed by 99 points to 92 on referee Steve Gray’s scorecard.


The St Helens man, 36, has been confirmed as an addition to an MTK Global card, topped by former WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight champion Rocky Fielding in a clash against Tanzania’s Abdallah Paziwapazi, on November 15, exclusively live Stateside on ESPN+, as part of a link-up with Bob Arum’s Top Rank Inc.

He will face Bosnia’s Sladan Janjanin over eight rounds on the card that features the return of former WBA International female super-featherweight champion Natasha Jonas, the second fight in five weeks for former WBO world lightweight king Terry Flanagan and the proud professional debut of Solly-trained former Team GB starlet Blane Hyland.

Janjanin (27-4, 21 KOs) was last in action in June and is the current Universal Boxing Federation European middleweight champion after knocking out Mika Joensuu inside two rounds in Offenbach, Germany.

“I know he can punch,” said Murray on the threat of his latest foe. “He’s got a lot of knockouts so he can’t be overlooked. It’s another step up the ladder towards a big fight. Hopefully I’ll get that next year. If you’re loving what you’re doing, which I am at the moment, you just keep going in there and enjoying everything.”

Murray is hoping that a second win of the year, on the back of a disappointing 2018 in which he lost to Hassan N’Dam, will lead to another title opportunity in the new year.

“I’m solely focused on this show because I know that a good performance here could set me up for another big fight in 2020,” he concluded.

Alex Dickinson, who suffered his maiden defeat in the paid code last time out, losing to Kamil Sokolowski in Leeds back in June, will be back in action and looking to get back to winning ways, while both John Quigley and Ged Carroll –– both of whom featured on the aforementioned card in July –– have been awarded slots alongside Sean Turner, who debuts, as well as James Heneghan and Mikey Hedges.

Got to admire his dedication after all these years, especially having been on the end of at least one bad call (vs Sergio) and another disputed draw vs Sturm. One tough dude.
