Murray tried his best tonight and was able to land some really nice shots. You could tell by the swelling on Golovkin’s fight that Murray was a lot tougher than he expected him to be.

By the end of the fight, Murray’s nose was bloody and his left eye badly swollen. Golovkin had Murray’s nose bleeding in the 6th round after hitting him with a series of hard left uppercuts that sliced through Murray’s clam-shell guard.
