Murray joins Rocky on huge #MTKFightNight
Four-time world title challenger Martin Murray will join gym-mate Rocky Fielding on the #MTKFightNight in Liverpool on July 12.
The fighting pride of St Helens (37-5-1, 17 KOs) is back in business – live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV – and feels mentally refreshed after his controversial defeat to Hassan N’Dam back in December.
Murray said: “I’ve been keeping myself fit and doing a lot of training. I’m pushing myself and I know I’m not done physically but mentally, I needed a rest. Now I’m fully refreshed.
“This short time away from the sport has done me a world of good because I’ve had time to sit down and think about what I really wanted. I’m back and I’m just going to enjoy fighting again.
“I went back to the gym yesterday and I genuinely loved being back. I’m not done – I had one off fight and now I’m coming back. I can’t wait to get out there in Liverpool.
“I can’t wait to get out there on July 12 on the same bill as my good mate Rocky Fielding.”
Joining Murray and Fielding on what will be a colossal show in the boxing stronghold of Liverpool is local hero Jazza Dickens, who takes on talented Australian Nathaniel May for the IBF European title.
Further news of fights and fighters on the card will be forthcoming in due course.
