Billy Joe Saunders vs Murray: When is fight and how can I watch on TV or live stream?


Billy Joe Saunders defends his WBO super middleweight world title and unbeaten record against British veteran Martin Murray at the SSE Arena on Friday evening. 

Saunders has not fought for over a year, with potential blockbuster bouts against Gennadiy Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez falling through, but a huge fight next year remains in the offing if he can impress against Murray.

That will be no easy task, though, with Murray a rugged and durable opponent, who can count himself very unlucky not to have won a world title in a decorated career.

Murray has not fought at the elite level since losing a majority decision against Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam in 2018, however, the 38-year-old knows this is likely his last opportunity to win world honours, while still holding a grudge against Saunders, with two fights between the pair cancelled in recent years. 

There is an exciting undercard on offer, too, with the likes of James Tennyson, Zach Parker, Shannon Courtenay and Lerrone Richards all set to feature. Here is everything you need to know: 

  • Saunders fears ‘fat pig’ diet could cost him against Murray
  • Can we separate Saunders the boxer from the man?

When and where is the fight?

The fight is on Friday 4 December at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London.

When are the ring walks and what time will the fight start?

You can expect the ring walks to start from around 10pm onwards, although that could change depending on the undercard results.
