Martin Murray should get a crack at middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.

That is the verdict of Tony Bellew and Jamie Moore on Second Shout.

The duo were in the studio to analyse Golovkin's third-round stoppage of formal world champion Daniel Geale.

And while there is talk of GGG wanting Miguel Cotto, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Saul Alvarez next, cruiserweight challenger Bellew believes Murray will give him a real challenge.

"We're all forgetting forgetting about Martin Murray," he told Second Shout.

"This is a middleweight we've got from the domestic shores who is, in my opinion, as good as unbeaten.

"If he [Golovkin] is genuienly looking for a challelnge at middleweight, I do believe Martin Murray is there."

Moore agreed and also suggested that Cotto - who Golvkin called out in his post-fight interview - is too small to take on the 32-year-old, who is now 20-0, with 27 KOs and 17 in a row.

Murray (28-1-1) is ranked number one by the WBC which now belongs to Cotto following his stunning win over former middleweight supremo Sergio Martinez.
