Default Macklin vs Murray

Seems to be a bit a chat going back and forth regarding a possible fight, would love to see it.

Winner should get another crack at Sturm?

Murray is very underrated but I wonder if he'd have enough pop to really trouble macklin.

I don't think Murray is scared of Macklin, but his posturing about him is embarrassing.

He got a gift draw against Sturm and all of a sudden thinks he's Bertie Big Bollocks, especially over Macklin because of his KO loss last time against Martinez.

I'd take Macklin to win, probably by decision. He boxed really well at times last time out, better than I thought he was capable of doing, and ought to be able to land the shots to keep Murray honest.

I'd agree with most of this, although I'd guess it would be a close points win for macklin, I think he can switchn off during fights

Sorry but Sturm/Murray was hardly a 'gift draw' fight could have gone either way. No complaints at that decision from me.

I thought Macklin deserved the decision against Sturm, though Murray fought well against the same opponent I don't think he did enough to win it. Especially in Germany!!
