Matchroom on DAZN: Saunders vs. Murray Picks



Luke Irwin: Scott Christ said it exactly right. This should have happened a few years ago at a lower weight. But here we are. This is Murray’s fourth and probably final crack at a world title. I would have liked his odds even three years ago, but it’s too late, Murray never got by on speed, and his technique is elementary. With a guy like Saunders, who doesn’t care about style or excitement, he’ll muddy and boring it up against a guy like Murray. I hate that it’s going to go like this, but I have to think with my head and not my heart. The ducker wins again. Saunders via UD.
