Munroe: I'm Still Good Enough To Be World Champ

Rendall Munroe has ignored talk of retirement and hopes to revive his career with victory this weekend. There were calls for Munroe to hang up his gloves for good after he suffered a one-sided stoppage defeat against Lee Selby in February.

But the 33-year-old, a former world title challenger, will start another comeback against Youssef Al Hamidi at Blackpool's Winter Gardens on Saturday night.

"I've got to show I've still got it and get myself ready for my next fight," Munroe said.

"I've sparred with Al Hamidi and he's a tough guy, but I think I've got too much for this level and should win well before moving on."

Munroe briefly quit the sport after being halted by Scott Quigg in 2012, but then stepped up to featherweight in search of another title shot.

Kiko Martinez and Victor Terrazas have both taken world belts since losing to Munroe and the Leicester man remains confident he can reach the top again.

"I know I'm good enough to be a world champion and that's still the goal," he stated.

"You look at the likes of Kiko Martinez and Victor Terrazas, they've been world champions and I beat them. I sparred Jamie McDonnell and Stuey Hall before they won their world titles as well, so I tick all the boxes."
