Murray Withdraws From Fletcher For Felix Sturm Rematch?

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to a report in Daily Mail, WBA interim-middleweight champion Martin Murray (26-1-1, 11KOs) has been presented with a lucrative offer to have a rematch with Felix Sturm, now the IBF's champion at 160, in Germany.

The paper's report comes directly on the back of Murray's withdrawal from a scheduled fight with Jarrod Fletcher on February 1 in Monte Carlo.

Sturm (39-3-2, 18KOs) and Murray went to a controversial twelve round draw in 2011, in a fight where many felt Murray had done enough to win.

Macklin was robbend against Sturm but Felix clearly won the fight against Murray. It was not even close.

[QUOTE=Cuban Linx;14114698]When he beats Sturm, it will make the GGG even bigger.[/QUOTE] This is so freaking funny.... you think he'd fight Golovkin afterwards? Are you kidding me? He's going to take that belt back to England and defend it there.…

[QUOTE=Cuban Linx;14114698]When he beats Sturm, it will make the GGG even bigger.[/QUOTE] Thats a big IF. I doubt Murray will fight GGG if he wins. He'll likely get it on with Macklin in a big money fite given he wins…
