Martin Murray Tabs Fielding To Beat Smith

The St Helens man sees Oliver Harrison’s gameplan as a crucial part of him getting the win


Martin Murray believes his gym-mate Rocky Fielding has the perfect game-plan to beat Callum Smith when the two unbeaten Super Middleweights clash for the vacant British title at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 7, live on Sky Sports.

Murray and Fielding train with Oliver Harrison in Salford and the St Helens man, who is preparing for his WBO World title challenge against Arthur Abraham on November 28 in Germany, says he’s seen Fielding improve day-by-day in the gym and that he’ll come out on top of a hard fight in Liverpool.

“Callum is a top fighter, there’s no disputing that. He might be a slight favourite, it looks 50-50 to many people but a lot of folks just favour Callum. I don’t know whether that’s because he’s maybe got a bigger profile or they’ve seen more of him on Sky Sports, but I train with Rocky every day and I know what he is capable of, and if you ask Scott Quigg or Anthony Crolla who they think will win and they will say Callum because they see what he can do every day.

The fight is one of the most highly anticipated between two young British fighters this year, where all questions will be answered next week.
