Exclusive John Murray Interview on his Career and Comeback to Boxing

John Murray talks to BritishBoxers.co.uk about his struggle to regain his boxing licence following the diagnosis of a swollen pituitary gland late last year. The 28-year-old Manchester boxer has not fought since his 11th-round loss to Brandon Rios in December 2011, but the 31-2 (18) fighter believes that he can put a torrid few years behind him and get back into the lightweight title mix over the course of the next year.

Now training with former fighter turned trainer Anthony “Arnie” Farnell, Murray speaks openly and candidly about the toughest period of his career and calls for a greater understanding of what boxers go through and difficulties of the sport, both inside and outside the ring.
