Reid mentioned yesterday that he would return. But when he returned to the hotel yesterday he and team coach Ben McElroy decided they wanted some more.

Murray was meant to be away for the weekend  but cut it short to help Reid ahead of his big fight on the 25th September. Reid made an apologetic phone call to Murray's partner Adele and said that he would treat the pair to dinner and thanked her for being so understanding.

Adele claimed however that she'd had a better time on her own anyway and that she should be thanking Alex.

Murray was equally impressed by the hard work from Alex and has told the title contender that he can return any time.
