WBC Prez Speaks With Martin Murray Regarding Attack on Garcia

By World Boxing Council

Martin Murray from the U.K. was involved in an unsportsmanlike conflict during the official weigh-in for his fight against Roberto Garcia for the WBC silver championship in the middleweight division.

The WBC Disciplinary Committee has investigated the facts surrounding this incident and WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman established direct contact with our champion, Martin Murray.

The conversation between our President and silver champion was very important to clarify all aspects and following, you will find the President’s resolution:

The WBC has known Murray for many years and always praised him for his exemplary behavior outside the ring with extensive community work in support of the youth throughout the years.

President Sulaiman said, “My communication with Murray was extremely respectful, and he is aware of the dangers that any physical aggression during press conferences or weigh-ins could produce. He has expressed a sincere full apology to the public in general and boxing fans. Murray also apologized to García and his team before and after their fight.”

There were several incidents which led to this reaction, the reason for which the WBC will communicate with Garcia’s camp separately.

The WBC hereby confirms that there will be no further action regarding this case and will only be a warning to both fighters and their representatives, which will follow with additional awareness information for them to study.

Once again, the WBC is proud of its silver middleweight champion Martin Murray and wish him great success proudly representing the green belt.

I would like to see someone shove that fat dump Sulaiman at a press conference/weigh-in.

Yeah that was unsportsmanlike. I understand why Murray flipped though. Billy Joe Saunders pretty much denied him a shot at the WBO strap twice. He was frustrated but this wasn't the way to go about expressing your frustrations. It happened…

“0ur Champion!” Lol... I guess he can go for the goal of 20 record defenses since they counted golovkins when he was the regular champ!
