Promoter denies Golovkin-Murray report

By Karl Freitag

Tom Loeffler, Managing Director at K2 Promotions, told Saturday night that there is no truth to a Daily Mail report that WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s February 1 title defense in Monte Carlo will be against two-time world title challenger Martin Murray. “There is no truth to that story,” Loeffler said. “We have offered a fight to Murray in the past and they have not been interested.”

Golovkin is scheduled to fight February 1 in Monte Carlo, but the opponent is not finalized.
