Roberto Garcia Offers To Step In And Face Martin Murray On June 23

WBC Silver Middleweight Champion Roberto Garcia has offered to step in and face Britain’s Martin Murray on June 23 after hearing the news that WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders had pulled out of their championship bout for a second time.


“I’m not like Saunders,” said Garcia. “I’m not afraid of Murray. I’m willing to risk my title and come to London to fight Murray before his hometown fans. Let’s get it on!”


Saunders postponed the originally scheduled April 14th fight with Murray because of a alleged hand injury. Now he is pulling out of the June fight because of an alleged hamstring injury.


“My manager, Lee Holliday, informed me today that my promoter, Don King, has reached out to Warren’s team about making this fight. I have a “have Belt and will Travel” attitude and ready to back it up tomorrow if necessary.


“No more whining about Billy Joe and his excuses. If you want to fight on June 23, then put up or shut up. If not, then you are just Billy Joe with different excuses.”
