Saunders defeats Murray on points
In the main event of the evening in London WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders scored a one-sided unanimous decision over Martin Murray in a rather boring fight. The scores were 120-109, 120-109 and 118-110.
The fight took place with the complete domination of Saunders, who, despite this, did not bother to raise the pace a little and stop the fight over 38-year-old Murray, who was clearly not in his best shape that evening, had not fought for a year and only kept in the ring due to his big heart. Instead, Saunders, an undefeated 29-0 fighter at the peak of his career and considered by many to be number three in his weight class, wasted time in a verbal chatting with Murray in the ring.
Interestingly, the show fight of the two gentlemen over 50 earlier turned out to be much more interesting than Saunders vs Murray.
