Murray who put up a good show against Golovkin in February will get his 4th shot at world honours and will be hoping that this time he can bring the coverted prize back to Britain.

“I am thrilled to have the chance to face Arthur for the WBO World Super Middleweight title,” said Murray. “I was shocked when Arthur agreed to the fight, it’s one he didn’t have to take so must be confident but I am at my natural weight now and believe on November 21 I will become World champion.

“It’s the fight that I targeted when I chose to move up to Super Middleweight and it’s one that I am confident of winning. I know that Arthur is a great champion and a tough man to beat on his home patch, but my trainer Oliver Harrison and I both believe that we have the formula to take his title.

“I have never been afraid to travel to fight for World titles and this occasion will be no different; I expect lots of Brits to travel to Germany and it will be a fantastic atmosphere and a great fight for the fans in the Arena and watching on Sky Sports and Sat.1.”
