The scores were 120-109, 120-109, 118-110.

They were scheduled to fight each other in 2018, with the contest being postponed twice.

It was a calculated boxing match, with Saunders just doing the basics with his jab and boxing ability. Murray was not doing that much in the early going, looking for openings.

Saunders seemed to rattle Murray with a few punches at the end of the fourth, which nearly banked him a knockdown. As the fight played out, Murray was looking every bit of his age. He looked slower than usual and was being easily outworked.

Murray was getting frustrated by the style of Saunders at the mid-way point. Murray took some big shots in the eight, but continued to come forward in what was become a fight filled with rough tactics. Saunders continued to land solid punches in the ninth, with Murray not doing much in return. In the tenth, Saunders was battering Murray around the ring with hard shots.

During the eleventh, it was target practice for Murray, who was taking punishment. And the one way action continued in the twelfth and final round.

[QUOTE=Winky-Wright;20929650]Billy Joe takes step down fights not step up lol, expect Rosado next or his mandatory Zach Parker, he will go out his way to avoid any fighter with a pulse. He purposely took peds to get out of fighting…

[QUOTE=PredatorStyle;20929301]There were no photo's of Murray throwing and BJ covering up. I just realized Joe probably needs a crowd to perform to his best. He seems to fight on emotion to quite a high degree. Anyway, can't wait to see…

Forget covid BJ gave Murray herpes for sure with all the hugging and clinching

Comment by NachoMan on 12-05-2020

Martin Murray is the kind of fighter they make Oscar-winning movies about .Five-time championship challenger, five-time loser, but always fighting to the end. Just an honest, blue-collar fighter.
