Rendall Munroe vs. Toshiaki Nishioka on October 24th
By Ziggy Shah: Rendall Munroe has promised his local community that he will be back at work, doing his day job, even if he becomes the champion. Munroe (21-1, 9 KO’s) who works as a bin man, will challenge WBC Super-bantamweight Champion Toshiaki Nishioka In Japan on Sunday, and is confident that he can bring the strap back to the UK. However, if the Leicester born fighter is successful, he insists that he will not be giving up what he loves, “I’ll be back at work on Tuesday. I enjoy the job and it keeps my feet on the ground. I couldn’t ask for anything else, except that title.”

The title in question has been wrapped around the waist of Nishioka, 34, since 2008 and taking it from him will be a difficult task for the 30 year-old Leicester man.
The WBC southpaw champion has an impressive record (36-4-3, 23 KO’s), and in his last 13 fights he has remained unbeaten with nine of them coming by stoppage.
Munroe knows all about the champion and said he is prepared for a tough battle, "He's a world-class champion and every time you step up a new level you've got to be better than you were last time.”
The bin man will indeed have to be better than he has ever been before, and he hopes that his skills and his travelling fans, ‘The Dust man army’, equipped with their fluorescent Yellow jackets, can help and cheer him on to a famous victory.
