Well he's got a while to go, I wouldn't write the kid off because who knows what might happen. Saunders may win a British title and move on by time he gets there, Murray will most likely look to operate at world level from now on.

So far he's fighting solid enough opposition, nothing unbelievable but they are taking rounds off him and giving him a fight each time. I'd like to see a bit more variety in styles he fights but keep him at this level for time being. He's got his technical flaws and isn't exactly blowing the opposition away. No need to rush him like Groves and DeGale who had enough experience behind them to move on.

At the moment he's operating at Masters/Area title level which is fine, I'd say a British title fight would be realistic in 18 months time.

Totally agree, interesting thread, actually. He has faced durable opposition to be fair to the kid. Dad's shadow, body to head combos and a killer instinct stand in his way. All of which can be overcome.
