FORMER Wigan ABC fighter Martin Murray’s hopes of getting back into action were crushed by a virus.

He was on the card for Saturday’s Carl Froch v George Groves, but had to withdraw.

Murray was a late addition to the bill after seeing a scheduled fight in Australia collapse.

The 31-year-old has not boxed since a world title loss Sergio Gabriel Martinez in Argentina in April.
