World ranked middleweight Max Bursak will replace Martin Murray as Jarrod Fletcher’s opponent on the Golden Gloves’ promoted Monte Carlo boxing card on February 1.
The headliner features undefeated WBA and IBO middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin, who defends his titles against Osumanu Adama.
The bout will be for Bursak’s WBA Continental middleweight crown and not the WBA interim middleweight title, as first thought. “I’m very satisfied with him as a replacement,” said promoter Rodney Berman. “I had an inkling Murray would pull out, probably for fear of losing to Fletcher, who is dangerous.”
