Murray seals deal for Golovkin title shot in Feburary

Middleweight world titleholder Gennady Golovkin, decked out in a tuxedo and a maroon bow tie one week after a big knockout victory, got a close look at his next opponent on Saturday at the Salle des Étoiles in Monte Carlo. Golovkin, sitting with K2 Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler, watched as England's Martin Murray came through with a victory to set up a shot at GGG's 160-pound world title on February 21, also in Monte Carlo, where Golovkin has fought twice before and where Murray has had his last two fights.

Murray (29 wins, one defeat, one draw, 12 KOs), 31, won a seventh-round technical decision against Italy's Domenico Spada (39-6-0, 19 KOs), 34, on scores of 69-67, 68-63 and 67-66 in a rather sloppy fight.

Loeffler told ESPN that he and Murray promoter Rodney Berman, as well as the fighters, came to terms for the February fight about a month ago and recently signed contracts pending victories by Golovkin on October 18 and Murray on Saturday.
