Quigg vs Munroe in Manchester on June 16th

THE WBA ‘interim’ super-bantamweight title clash between Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe will take place at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday 16th June.

It is one of the biggest domestic clashes this year, between the men who are both promoted by Hatton Promotions..
Sky Sports will broadcast the 12 round clash which will be supported by a top class championship undercard.

Promoter Ricky Hatton said: “It is about giving the public what they want and I am sure that we can attract a big crowd to the Velodrome.

“Our Director of Boxing Richard Poxon is working on a quality undercard that will give the fans great value and night to look forward to.”

British champion Quigg, 23, is one of world boxing’s brightest prospects and unbeaten in 24 professional contests.

The Bury hopeful won the British title last year forcing Jason Booth to quit on his stool and stopped Jamie Arthur in his first defence last month.

Boxing bin man 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.

Full ticket details including the on-sale date will be confirmed early next week, but you can register your interest by calling 01925 755 222


Quigg v Munroe is ON!!

HATTON Promotions will stage the domestic fight of the year when Britain’s TOP two super-bantamweights, Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe clash this summer. We are delighted to announce that Hatton Promotions stable-mates will meet on June 2 or 16 with the interim WBA title on the line. Venues are under consideration in Manchester and the Midlands for a 12 round battle that will capture the public’s imagination.

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

“It is about giving fans what they want and this is a match-up of the highest quality between two of the world’s best 8st 10lb boxers.

“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.

“It is certainly the biggest fight Hatton Promotions have staged in the UK and I am sure the public will support it.”
