Martin Murray thinks he is ready to take on double world super middle-weight champion Carl Froch.

Murray would be required to step up a weight division to take on the fight, but that is not something that phases the 30-year-old.

Talking to the Manchester Evening News, Murray said: “I can do middleweight comfortably and that’s still the weight I want to fight at, but a Froch fight is one I’d be more than open to.

“I believe styles make fights and I think me and Carl Froch would put on an absolute war.

“If Carl is going to fight another British fighter then I don’t see why my name isn’t in the mix. It makes sense from the American TV side of things with me now being known on HBO after the Martinez fight.” 

It is because of the fight against Martinez that Murray is touted as a contender to fight Froch, who has established his reputation as one of the finest British fighters after he defeated Mikkel Kessler at the O2 Arena last month.

Murray took the Argentine, ranked as the fourth best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, to a points decision and showed his class throughout their fight in Buenos Aires.

If the two boxers were to fight it would certainly make for an entertaining spectacle and a brutal battle, with both keen to come forward and box on the front-foot.

Murray is one of three British fighters looking for a match against the Cobra, after James De Gale and George Groves issued challenges to the 35-year-old.
