Britain’s Martin Murray eyes Garth Wood fight in Australia

By James Slater

Martin Murray, who hasn’t fought since pushing middleweight king Sergio Martinez all the way back in the spring, may head to Australia for a defence of his WBA interim title against Garth Wood. Murray Tweeted last night how he will face Woood, 12-3-1 (8) in Sydney if he can obtain a visa to travel. Murray has had visa issues in the past but he is hoping to go “down under” and fight Wood on November 30th. Wood is best known for upsetting Anthony Mundine by shock 5th round stoppage back in 2010. Murray says he wants bigger fights but he says also that he has no real alternatives to facing 35-year-old Wood at present.
