Charles Murray (boxer)
Murray was the 1987 United States Amateur Lightweight champion.
Known as "The Natural," Murray turned pro in 1989 and won the vacant IBF light welterweight title with a decision win over Rodney Moore in 1993. He defended the title twice before losing it in 1994 to Jake Rodriguez via a majority decision. After the loss to Rodriguez, Murray quickly drifted from championship status to journeyman. He never challenged for a major title again and hasn't fought since 2004. Murray has three children, a seven-year-old, a fourteen-year-old and twenty-four-year-old. Murray was married on August 16, 2009. On August 17, 2010 had his fourth child in addition to a step-child.
Murray now trains boxers, and has trained Jerson Ravelo amongst other professional fighters.
