Martin Murray’s quest for an elusive world title seemed to have hit a frustrating roadblock when Arthur Abraham pulled out of their proposed rematch but the 34 year old St. Helens super middleweight has been handed a different challenge.

Murray (33-4-1, 16 KO’s) will instead fight Dmitrii Chudinov (19-1-2, 12 KO’s) in Monte Carlo on November 12. The 30 year old Russian steps in to the breach on twelve days notice. 

Murray posted on his instagram page;

It’s been confirmed that my new opponent for November 12th will be Dmitrii Chudinov.
This is a tougher fight than the Abraham rematch IMO and its a great replacement.
These are the sort of fights that I want so looking forward to fighting even more now.

Chudinov is riding a five fight win streak since being taken apart by Chris Eubank Jnr in February 2015 and may well carry more ambition than Abraham at this stage of his career. 

The fight is part of a stacked bill which also contains Luis Ortiz’s clash with Malik Scott, Jason Sosa defending his WBA super featherweight title against Stephen Smith and Jamie McDonnell putting his WBA bantamweight title on the line against Liborio Solis.
