Murray Abandons Fletcher Bout

jarrod-fletcherInterim WBA Middleweight champion Martin Murray has withdrew from his scheduled defence against Australian Jarrod Fletcher, set for February 1st.

The bout due to take place in Monte Carlo on the undercard of Gennady Golovkin v Osumanu Adama has been cancelled, with rumours Murray is now chasing a rematch with Felix Sturm, whom he fought to a draw in 2011. With Sturm recently claiming the IBF crown, it is said Murray looks to set up a showdown with the German titlist.

Fletcher will however remain on the Monte Carlo card with a replacement opponent in the works and the Interim WBA title still up for grabs.
