Martin Murray Returns on Quigg vs Munroe Title Card

HATTON PROMOTIONS are delighted to officially announce their ‘Road To Glory’ bill which will take place at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday 16th June.

It is our biggest ever show in a short three year history and will feature four exciting title fights.

Topping the bill is a vacant ‘interim’ WBA world super-bantamweight title fight between Bury’s Scott Quigg and Leicester’s Rendall Munroe.

It is one of the biggest domestic clashes this year with British champion Quigg facing his toughest test ever against the former Commonwealth and European champion.

In the chief supporting bout Sheffield ‘Spice Boy’ Ryan Rhodes meets unbeaten Belarusian knockout artist Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight title.

In a third title fight British, Commonwealth and WBA intercontinental champion Martin Murray will be in championship action against a top class opponent.

The Undefeated St Helens boxer held WBA super champion Felix Sturm to a draw back in December, and was due to face WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in June, but the fight was pulled because of visa problems.

Sheffield heavyweight hope Richard Towers bids for his first professional title when he comes up against another unbeaten fighter, Germany’s Michael Wallisch for the vacant EU heavyweight crown.

The card will be broadcast live by Sky Sports.

Hatton Promotions CEO Ricky Hatton said: “This is Hatton Promotions most ambitious promotion so far, and shows that we have come a long way in a short space of time.

“All the fights are competitive and everybody at the venue and watching live on television will get a show they can remember.

“I am so excited about Scott’s fight against Rendall. Scott is one of the best young boxer’s in the world at Rendall is one of the 8st 10lb elite fighters.

“Ryan’s fight against Rabchenko is between two world class operators and I have no doubt that the winner will challenge for a world title.

“I am certain Martin Murray is going all the way and if he wins in June I believe he will be made mandatory contender for the WBA crown

“Richard Towers has done everything right and for a late starter to boxing deserves nothing but praise. By the end of 2012 he will be ready for Tyson Fury and David Price.”
