Murray: Saunders is a F***ing Sh*thouse, a Horrible Creature!

Martin Murray has been fuming since WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders withdrew from their June 23 fight.

The withdrawal has prompted Murray to question the legitimacy of his injury.

The pair were initially set for an April 14 bout at the O2 Arena, but a hand issue saw Saunders postpone the event by two months.


However, this time around, promoter Frank Warren confirmed that the 28-year-old will again be unable to fulfil the fight, this time pulling out completely with a hamstring injury.

Murray is seemingly not convinced by the reason given for the decision. He believes Saunders is making a play to secure Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin - who are having trouble coming to a financial agreement for a fall rematch.

Saunders has been named as a frontrunner alternative by both Canelo and Golovkin - if they are unable to reach a deal with each other. 

Murray has become more enraged in recent days, after spending money for two training camps with no financial reimbursement for the work.

“He’s a f****** sh*thouse. That’s all I can say about him,” Murray told Boxing News.

“He can’t intimidate me. He’s a f****** idiot. The fight’s gone now, it’s never going to happen. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. There’s no way I’d ever fall for it a third time. He’s still giving it the big ‘un now. He’s just an embarrassment, an embarrassment to the sport and just a horrible little creature.

“It cost money, two training camps abroad. It cost money, there’s everything that comes with it. There’s money it cost me potentially in sponsorships and stuff like that. There’s money that’s cost you where you’ve put stuff on hold because you’ve been doing these training camps. I’ve been training the first half of this year. I’ve got f*** all from it."

[QUOTE=NachoMan;18832510]Who provides that type of insurance? The promoters? Asking seriously. I think its a fair thing to ask for when fighting guys with a history like that (BJS, Haye, etc). It's hard not to feel bad for Murray here.[/QUOTE] There…

Having so much money involved is very hard to get an accurate diagnostic, but the commission and even murray's camp should force saunders to go to a neutral doctor to confirm his injury, if it shows he was faking it…

I’m somewhat shocked, when watching older interviews it seemed as though Saunders had much respect for Murray and spoke highly of him, which is unusual since he usually belittles all his opponents. Murray is an earnest fighter, it’s a shame…

BJS is a piece of sh[B]i[/B]t. He really thinks he'll get a shot at Clenelo or GGG doing this? Last I checked you don't draw massive crowds to your fights, dude. Let's be humble here
