Martin Murray triumphs in Monte Carlo

World-ranked middleweight Martin Murray said he was in a different class to Max Bursak and so it proved at the Monte Carlo Casino on Saturday night as he dominated Bursak to claim the WBC Silver belt.

Fighting before a vociferous crowd which included his famous “Barmy Army” from England, Murray triumphed by scores of 119-109, 119-109 and 117-111.

Drama unfolds at Monte Carlo weigh-in

All eight boxers made the weight just before noon on Friday for Saturday’s “KO at the Casino” tournament in Monte Carlo, but not before a few scares, chiefly for WBA and IBO strawweight champion Hekkie Budler and WBC Silver middleweight title holder Max Bursak.

With a large crowd thronging the Monte Carlo Casino for the weigh-in, the aforementioned pair came in 200g and 300g over the limit respectively. Given two hours to shed the weight, they comfortably did so.

For the main event, Martin Murray of the UK, who fights Ukrainian Bursak, looked in exceptional shape. He came in at 72,3kg (159 pounds) compared to Bursak’s 72,8kg (160,5 pounds) and was egged on by members of the famed “Barmy Army” who sang songs throughout proceedings.
