Martin Murray Calls George Groves A Quitter

Martin Murray has branded George Groves a quitter ahead of their make or break meeting on Saturday.  The two super-middleweights have seven failed world title challenges between them, and the winner this weekend will be in line for a crack at the WBA title.

The loser faces a long road back to elite level and Murray believes it is the all or nothing nature of Saturday's contest that has the public hooked. Murray has always been confident of breaking down Groves in the final rounds, but the St Helens man's respectful tone shifted at Wednesday's press conference as he accused his opponent of running away from a sparring session with middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.

Addressing Groves' claim that there is no quit in me Murray, who lasted 11 rounds with Golovkin in 2015, said: “I've been told that you went home on the second day of sparring Golovkin as you couldn't cope. You quit in sparring with a headguard and big gloves. You are a quitter. He thinks he's the superior fighter because that's the way he is. He thinks he's superior not just as a fighter but in everyday life, that's the way he carries himself.”

Murray is relatively new to the super-middleweight division having moved up 12 months ago, but Groves' natural size advantage is not a problem for the 33-year-old.
