Martin Murray’s hopes of securing a bout at his beloved Langtree Park remain a possibility - despite his defeat against Gennady Golovkin.
The Pride of St Helens boxer, 32, who was at the Saints vs Castleford game last Friday, has made no secret of his dream of one day fighting in front of a big hometown crowd.
It’s a prospect Saints chiefs have looked into in the past, and one that remains a possibility despite Murray’s crushing loss in Monte Carlo last month.
A club spokesman said: “We’ve always supported Martin and have looked into the logistics of putting a boxing ring in the middle of the pitch before.
“It remains a possibility but Martin and his team would have to negotiate a fight first before any firm plans are made.”
A fight between Murray and WBO champion Andy Lee - who is set to take on American Peter Quillin on April 11 - has been mooted.
Murray previously pushed world champions Felix Sturm and Sergio Martinez all the way.
