Martinez keeps title with win over Murray

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Sergio Martinez retained his WBC middleweight title, unanimously outpointing Martin Murray on Saturday night despite being sent to the canvas several times by the Englishman.

The three judges all scored the fight 115-112 in favor of the defending champion in his first fight in his hometown in 11 years after fighting mostly in Europe.

Martinez has 53 victories in 55 fights. It was Murray’s first loss in 27 fights.
