Murray: Taylor-Soliman Embarrassing, I'd Beat Both!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC silver middleweight champion Martin Murray (28-1-1, 12KOs) shook his head over the recent title fight between Jermain Taylor and Sam Soliman.

Murray is upset that Taylor, among all of the available contenders, was provided with a shot at Soliman's IBF championship. Taylor ended up capturing the belt with a twelve round unanimous decision, after dropping an injured Soliman several times in the contest.

He feels numerous fighters in the middleweight ranks who are capable of knocking Taylor off.

"Jermain Taylor has just won the IBF world middleweight title from Sam Soliman. It wasn't a good fight to watch, and embarrassing for a world title fight. I know I would beat the pair of them, as would a lot of other middleweights around the world. There are far better fighters out there who should have been given the chance," Murray told Nick Parkinson.

Murray should get that joke belt off of Taylor.

What a joke! Does Murray think he's a special fighter or something? He may beat both in ugly, close fights. Hassan N'dam would embarrass Murray.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;15045732]Murray is the IBF mandatory, isn't he? He got a pretty sweet deal with those South Africans. Seven figures to fight the likes of Bursak and Spada :lol1:[/QUOTE] No, N'dam is. He passed up an eliminator to focus…
