Munroe Tabs Jason Booth To Help Beat Scott Quigg

RENDALL MUNROE reckons getting matey is the key to shocking unbeaten star Scott Quigg on Saturday night.

The one-time binman has turned to close pal Jason Booth to improve his chances of glory in the vacant WBA interim super-bantamweight showdown at Manchester Velodrome.

It is the most crucial fight of the former European champion’s career. Defeat against Bury’s British champion will end Munroe’s hopes of a second world title tilt.

Old stager Booth is coming to end of his boxing career after losing to Quigg in seven rounds last year, but has enough ring savvy to give his southpaw pal the lowdown on his rival.

Munroe, 32, said:  “I have sparred a few rounds with Jason.

"He is a close friend - someone I  talk to a lot.  He’ll advise me on what Quigg is like although my trainer Jason Shinfield draws up the battle plans.

“When you look at Jason's record, you can see he knows what it is all about when you climb into the ring.”

Munroe feels that there has been a lack of respect shown to him by outsiders in the build-up to what is expected to be one of British boxing’s best fights of 2012.

The talent stacked ‘Road To Glory’ card is Hatton Promotions biggest so far, and there will be even bigger shows later this year.

There are three other big fights on the bill including Sheffield’s Ryan Rhodes challenging Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight championship.

Ryan’s fellow steel city fighter Richard Towers squares off against Frenchman Gregory Tony for the vacant EU heavyweight crown.

In a special attraction unbeaten British middleweight champion Martin Murray meets French title holder Karim Achour.

Other fights: Craig Watson v Tomasz Mazurciewicz, Lucas Browne v Hastings Rasani,

Adam Etches v Ferenc Zold, Scott Jenkins v  Kristian Laight, Adam Little v Dee Mitchell, Kallum De’Ath v Anwar Alfadi and Louis Norman v Brett Fido.

All VIP and ringside tickets have been sold and. The remaining tickets are available priced at £55, £35 and £30, but are limited.  You can purchase tickets by calling Hatton Promotions hotline 01925 755 222/www.ticketmaster.co.uk/0844 847 2500/www.ticketline.co.uk/0844 888 4402/www.hmv.com

Here's hoping Hatton Promotions land on Boxnation and not fking Channel 5. Ricky was interviewed on Bunce's Boxing Hour last week about the Quigg vs Munroe show, which is promising to say the least.
