Munroe vs. Quigg on November 24th on Hatton vs. Senchenko card
RENDALL MUNROE is desperate to get to grips with Scott Quigg in next month’s vacant interim World Boxing Association (WBA) super-bantamweight title clash. The pair meet again at Manchester Arena in one of several big undercard fights when Ricky Hatton (45-2) makes his return against Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-1) on Saturday November 24.
Their first meeting in June ended prematurely in a third round technical draw because of a horrific cut to Rendall’s right eye.
Such an inconclusive ending was a disappointment to both warriors and the Leicester southpaw (24-2-1) warned British champion Quigg (24-0-1) said: “I will finish what I started.
“Everything is going good and I am already fit. I am going to go out there and do what needs to be done.
“Scott will turn around and say he was going to knock me out last time and all that rubbish. Fair play to him for having those dreams.
“We were only two and a half rounds into the fight and I was confident I was going to do what I wanted. I hadn’t even started getting going.
“I live clean and healthy so that helped the cut heal up quickly. I have been in full training for more than four weeks now.
“It is good that so many people will see the fight on a big card, because it will show I am still hungry and climbing the ladder.”
Although Ricky’s return has grabbed global headlines, his show features the best of British on a magnificent undercard.
Sergey Rabchenko (21-0) defends his European light-middleweight crown against Frenchman Cedric Vitu (35-1), Martin Murray (24-0-1) will feature in a major contest and Gary Buckland (26-2) risks his British super-featherweight title against local idol Stephen Foster Jr (30-3-1).
Also in action are Hatton Promotions hopefuls James Dickens (12-0), Adam Etches (9-0) and Scott Jenkins (6-0).
All tickets are sold out and broadcast details will be announced shortly.
