Martin Murray will fight on the undercard to Carl Froch's bout with George Groves in Manchester on November 23.

British middleweight Martin Murray has been added to the undercard of Carl Froch's bout with George Groves at the Phones 4u Arena on November 23.

The 31-year-old from St Helens was scheduled to fight Garth Wood in Australia in December but that fight has now been pulled due to the headline fight between Anthony Mundine and Shane Mosley being re-scheduled for November 27.

Murray, who has twice been denied a world title in debatable circumstances, firstly against Felix Sturm and then Sergio Martinez, will be defending his number one status for the WBO title held by Gennady Golovkin.

Anthony Joshua will also take on Hector Avila in what will be his third appearance. The Olympic gold medallist is already pencilled in to fight Dorian Darch on December 14.

Anthony Crolla, Scott Quigg, Rocky Fielding, Scott Cardle and Jamie McDonnell are also fighting in the Manchester show.
