Martin Murray handed Dmitry Chudinov test in Monte Carlo

British super-middleweight Martin Murray will face Dmitry Chudinov in Monte Carlo next weekend after the recent withdrawal of Arthur Abraham.

British super-middleweight Martin Murray has predicted that Dmitry Chudinov will pose a bigger threat than Arthur Abraham.

Murray had been scheduled to face Abraham in Monte Carlo on November 12 but after the former world champion pulled out through injury, Chudinov has been brought in to meet the St Helens fighter later this month.

The Russian's only defeat of a 22-fight career has come against Chris Eubank Jr at the start of 2015, but Murray feels that he will provide a sterner examination than Abraham, to whom Murray lost in Germany last year.

The 34-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I think it's a tougher fight, if I'm honest with you. He's only had that one loss to Eubank Jr. He's got a few wins, quite a lot by knockout, and he's young, he's fresh, and he's ambitious.

"Obviously Arthur Abraham is old, experienced and he's aged. It's going to be a better fight for the fans, because all Abraham does is soak it up, then has a 10 second burst and wins the round. There is going to be more action in this fight."

Murray is looking to bounce back after losing on points to George Groves in June.
