Billy Joe Saunders finds himself a massive 20-to-1 favorite over Martin Murray, which could be due in part to his impressive win over David Lemieux in Canada.
Martin Murray has struggled as of late when facing top-level competition. He has lost to Golovkin, Groves and Arthur Abraham while struggling to get a win over Gabe Rosado. So, it is safe to say the careers of these two boxers are trending in opposite directions.
The southpaw Saunders was able to use effective movement to keep David Lemieux at bay in what amounted to a masterful performance. Martin Murray has a similar plodding style that is a favorable matchup for Saunders.
What is interesting is that Oddsmakers have Saunders favored to stop Murray at (-188) odds. Murray has only been stopped once in his entire career and that was after 11 rounds of brutal punishment at the hands of Gennady Golovkin.
