When is the Garcia vs Murray fight?

The venue for the fight is the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena (formerly the Millennium Dome) in London.
Martin Murray doesn’t believe in giving up. Despite four unsuccessful attempts at grabbing an elusive world title, the 35-year-old is back for more and will now fight Roberto Garcia to keep his dream alive. With a feeling that it’s now or never for Murray, this is a fight not be missed – and thankfully, you’re in the right place to find out how you can watch the Garcia vs Murray boxing action live, via TV or stream.
St Helens-born Murray enters Saturday’s fight with a record of 36 wins (16 KOs) from 41 fights, with four defeats and one draw. His last failed shot at a world title came against Arthur Abraham in 2015, but he now has the momentum of three victories in a row. The good run of form was building up to a challenge for Billy Joe Saunders’ middleweight title, only for injury to rule out Saunders in June and delay Murray’s attempt.
Enter his replacement, Roberto Garcia, drafted in by legendary promoter Don King. Now 38, Mexican-born Garcia will be fighting on British soil for the very first time, and enters the bout on 41 career wins (24 KOs) and three defeats.
