MARTIN MURRAY revealed he could be in line to challenge the winner of Gennady Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, and has put to bed his feud with Billy Joe Saunders.

The Merseyside man was last seen outpointing Mexican Roberto Garcia at the London O2 Arena in June, picking up the WBC Silver middleweight title in the process.

That win not only earned Murray the WBC understudy belt, it also elevated him to be ranked second within the sanctioning body, and the 35 year-old revealed if he is to defend the belt a future fight with the winner of the Golovkin-Canelo rematch could be imminent.
