Born on September 27, 1982 in St. Helens, Merseyside, England, Martin Murray is a tough, gritty boxer. He started training at 10 years old, as a friend of his had started going to a boxing gym and he decided to give it a try, as well. At 11, he had his first amateur fight. He had a solid amateur career, gaining quite a bit of experience. He turned professional fairly late for someone who started training so young, as he was almost 25 when he made his pro debut.

That debut came on September 22, 2007 against Jamie Ambler, and Murray picked up a decision on points after six rounds. His next fight was just over a month later, and he stopped Phil Callaghan in the very first round by TKO. That would be his final fight of 2007, but he stayed busy in 2008, fighting 10 times. The majority of his early fights were against low-level fighters, and he didn’t face anyone with a winning record until his seventh fight against the 8-4-2 Michael Recloux. He won that on points after six rounds.

After taking his record to 9-0, Martin Murray got the chance to make a name for himself by competing at the Prizefighter 4 middleweight tournament. The entire tournament took place on November 22, 2008, and he fought three bouts, each of them three rounds long. He won the first by unanimous decision and the next two by split decision to win the tournament.

Over the next year and a half, Murray continued to build his record through a mix of decisions and finishes. When he hit the 20-0 mark, he fought for the Commonwealth middleweight title on July 16, 2010 against Peter Mitrevski Jr. He won that fight by unanimous decision after 12 rounds, and followed it up by winning the WBA Inter-Continental middleweight belt with a third-round TKO over Carlos Nascimento.

Two fights later, he added the British middleweight title to his collection after stopping Nick Blackwell after five rounds. That set him up with a shot at Felix Sturm for the WBA middleweight title on December 2, 2011, but the close fight ended up being scored a draw. He won two fights after that, with the latter being for the WBA interim middleweight title, but then lost a close, controversial decision against Sergio Martinez. It was a fight that many observers thought Martin Murray won.

He went on another winning streak, this one four fights in a row, and collected the WBC Silver middleweight title during that time. This set him up with another title shot against undefeated middleweight destroyer Gennady Golovkin. While Murray fought hard and lasted until the 11th round, he eventually took too many shots and was stopped for the first time in his career.

He rebounded impressively from that defeat, finishing three fights in a row by KO or TKO. In the third, he beat Jose Miguel Torres for the WBA Inter-Continental super middleweight title. Unfortunately, he lost his next fight in another close split decision against Arthur Abraham.
