Murray suffered his first professional defeat against Sergio Martinez in Argentina in April and is expected to face another tricky fight against Wood.

"Wood is quite an awkward dirty fighter and he does tend to make it messy for people he has fought in the past,” said Murray.

“I am expecting a rough brawl but I have got to get in there and let the class take over."
