“The record books will tell you that Martin Murray failed to beat Felix Sturm and Sergio Martinez. But the reality of those world title contests against two of the best middleweights of the century is quite different; Murray, brimming with belief, tenacity and underrated skills, deserved far more from those cruel hometown scorecards.
The record books will also tell you that Murray spent time in prison as an angry young man. But again, judging Murray’s character by the blots on his record would be a huge mistake. Murray is one of the finest fighters this country has produced in recent years, but not only that, he’s one of the finest men.
So if you’re looking for the truth on Martin Murray,
the real truth, this is the place to start.”
