MARTIN MURRAY STORY OUT IN SEPTEMBER
British boxer Martin Murray has delayed the publication of his eagerly awaited autobiography until September this year.
Sinner and Saint had originally been scheduled for release in May but has been delayed after the postponement of Murray’s world title shot at WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders.
Now fight fans will have to wait a little longer to read the story of Murray’s life and fight career to date, which will culminate in a final chapter dedicated to the build-up and fight against Saunders.
A promising teenage amateur , Murray was drawn into a life fuelled by drugs, alcohol and street fighting.
By the age of 24, Murray had served four jail sentences, including one in a notorious Cypriot prison. Murray won the ABA welterweight title in 2004 while on the run.
The reintroduction of boxing back into his life and a settled family proved to be Murray's saviour.
After turning professional in 2007, Murray went on to win the Commonwealth and British middleweight titles, and challenged for the world title on no fewer than four occasions.
Murray pulls no punches as he recounts his story in the most intimate and vivid way – a rollercoaster life ultimately redeemed through his success in boxing.
