Rendall Munroe v Scott Quigg potential dates announced

Posted: March 23, 2012 in News

The two potential dates for Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe’s eagerly-anticipated clash were announced today.

The two will go toe to toe for the super bantamweight interim WBA and British titles on either June 2 or 16 in what could prove to be one of the domestic fights of the year.

The Hatton Promotions stable-mates will battle it out at a venue to be decided – expected to be in the Manchester or the Midlands.

Hatton Promotions chief executive Ricky Hatton said: “The fight has been brewing since Rendall signed for us and we have got there.

“The winner will go on to mix with the world’s elite fighters and it won’t be the end for the loser.

 “It is possible he can fight Commonwealth champion Carl Frampton who is learning his trade and is a big prospect for the future.”

British champion Quigg, 23, is one of world boxing’s brightest prospects and unbeaten in 24 professional contests. The Bury hopeful won his British title last year forcing Jason Booth to quit on his stool and stopped Jamie Arthur in his first defence last month.

Rendall, 31, who has won 24 contests and lost just twice, is a former Commonwealth and European champion. The Leicester southpaw has already fought at the highest level, challenging Toshiaki Nishioka for the WBC crown in Tokyo back in October 2010 losing on points.
