Murray seeks conclusive win

March 2008

Cavan’s Irish light-welterweight champion, Andrew Murray, goes into his rematch with Belfast’s James Gorman on March 22 with something of a point to prove.

The two Ulstermen met on the undercard to John Duddy and Howard Eastman’s clash at the King’s Hall in December. However, with Gorman having picked up a nasty cut due to a clash of heads, the fight was stopped and Murray was awarded the decision.

Now, with cuts healed, the duo go at it again as chief support to Matthew Macklin and Yori Boy Campas’ National Stadium event.

Speaking about their first fight, Murray admitted that he wasn’t overly satisfied with the outcome.

“When you win, you want to win in style so to win the way I did took a bit of the shine off it,” the London-based prospect said.

“You never want to win a fight on cuts so I still don’t class myself as the champion yet. Hopefully I can beat Gorman in Dublin and leave no doubts this time around.”

The Fight Night also features Cuban heavyweight Mike Perez and the pro debut of Irish amateur heavyweight champion Ian Tims.
