This fight promises to be an absolute barnstormer, but don’t just take our word for it!

A long time British fan favourite, Murray has won praise across the globe for his all action style and never say die attitude.

Although always exciting to watch, Murray is under no doubt that his hopes of challenging for a fifth world title rest solely on beating the equally hard punching Rosando, himself a former two time world title challenger.

Rosado takes no prisoners

Speaking in the run-up to the fight, Murray declared “if I can’t beat Rosado then my dreams of winning a world title are over. He’s been beaten by all the top boys. He gives it a good go, he puts it all on the line, but he’s fallen short.”

Murray is moving back down to middleweight following a disappointing loss to fellow Brit George Groves. Under no illusions, he’s been quick to point out that he’s fighting for his future.

“If I can’t beat him I think it’s time to hang the gloves up.”

Both men share a common opponent in current pound for pound king Gennady Golovkin, with Murray winning many admirers for his performance against ‘GGG.’ He ws, until recently, the only man to have taken Golovkin into the championship rounds before ultimately succumbing to the hard hitting Kazakh.

GGG too much for Macklin

When comparing previous high caliber opposition faced, Murray feels that he’s a definite step above in quality.

“I feel like I’m better than two of the world champions [Rosado] has fought, David Lemieux and Peter Quillin, I’m a better fighter than them so if I can’t get the same results as them, then my chances of winning a world title are over.”

With this in mind Saturday evening will be an unmissable night for fight fans.

How do you see the fight panning out?
