He is trying to make a name for himself chasing Khans shadow, Froch was always chasing a Joe Calazaghe fight which never happened. Murray needs to chart his own future not chase the shaddow of someone else.
limmond should be chasing murray...... murray is at the top in britain he would fight anyone he aint chasing anybody he is clearing up domesticaly then movin on to european then world hopefully

totally agree. not lookign at the bigger picture at all. Limmond has done nothing of note since the Khan fight if he wasnt to go places he needs to take a risk.

I really like Limond and rate him high like most people on this site and I understand that a guy as to make a living in and outside boxing especially at christmas time and if your business is going through a good patch in times like these. I also understand that Limond has his own value of what he is worth in a British boxing ring in certain level of fights but I really think his career has gone no where and will probably continue to be non existant even if he wins this fight.

Best of luck to him and I wish him all the best.

Let him fight Mitchell
we'll see that was really un professional off him not to make the weight but ya can only learn from your mistakes which he did in the thaxton fight and he will move on....where as limmond showed he was a true warrior in the khan fight and showed he belongs up there at that level domestically but he has not been active enough..... a believe it was not enough time and probaly not enough money on the table for the mitchell fight a would like to see limmond back at the top....looks like nelsons stable is becoming one off the best stables with burns,simpson,limmond,and young prospects in hughes

Seriously why should he even be considered for that? He has no boxing skill for that level. The most he can get is commonwealth title. Even defending that will be a massive challenge for him given his poor training by his trainer.

Anyway Limmond faught a good fight with AK, Infact I think its AKs best fight, You can see the fighting heart on both sides. To go as far as he did with Khan with a broken jaw, broken noise and to endure relentless round by round pounding by Khan is a great feat.
ya talk sense about limmond but ya have it in for john murray he has a crackin trainer in joe gallagher one of the best in the world nutrionists in kerry kayes but it was jon murray at fault for not makin the weight he is past the commonwealth stage in holding the british title hes goin on to european THEN world stage he knows its only a few fights away so you will see full commitment from him....hes done somthing that willie couldnt do and get to 27 fights undefeated with 16 ko's

He should forget AK and plot his own future, Not chase Khans shaddow.

Joe Gallagher is a joke trainer, He is an amatuer trainer, Familiar more with Irish traveller bare-knuckle boxing in car parks, Not a professional. Seriously you see these clowns fighting at Madison square and MGM Vegas?
first off all the 4 people ya mentioned 1)mitchell is fighting for a world title next so hes goin on to the world stage not european 2)a think he would take a fight with limmond 3)a dunno how fighting a cuban gets ya to european level 4) a was on the piss with gomez last week if ya beat him now you would lucky to get to british masters level....as for joe gallagher macklins had the best run he has ever had in the pro game with joe also crolla won his best fight with joe....joe murray still undeafeated and of course so is john murray another undefeated fighter
