Martin Murray (21-1-1, 12 KOs) scored a seventh-round technical decision victory over Domenico Spada (29-6, 19 KOs) at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
The scheduled 12-round Middleweight fight, which was for Murray’s WBC Silver Middleweight title, was abruptly stopped after Spada was deemed unable to continue due to a cut–a decision he vehemently disagreed with.
Murray was nevertheless dominant throughout the fight, despite getting a point deducted in Round 1 for an accidental headbutt that caused Spada’s cut.
Murray looks to now be in line to face Gennady Golovkin in February, who was in attendance in Monaco.
According to Dan Rafael via Twitter, the bout was formally announced after the fight.

This will be Murray’s third title shot and against the toughest man in the division.
How do you think he will do?
