Quigg Shocked Bookies Pick Him To Beat Munroe

SCOTT QUIGG is shocked that bookies’ have made him red hot favourite to beat Rendall Munroe next month.

Quigg challenges Munroe for the vacant interim WBA super-bantamweight crown on Hatton Promotions ‘Road To Glory’ bill at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday 16th June.

Although Quigg is British champion and undefeated in 24 fights, the Leicester southpaw is a former European champion and challenged Toshiaki Nishioka for the WBC crown.

Bury’s Quigg, 23, said: “Bookies have me as favourite which is strange. I am the underdog.

“What Rendall has achieved and level he has fought at is fantastic. It is a massive step up from where I have been fighting.

“I have only had two major championship fights and people are saying my opponents Jason Booth and Jamie Arthur had seen their best days.

“I am not disagreeing and realise how much I’ll be up against it.  I haven’t even touched his level, but I know what I’m capable of doing

“There is no pressure on me. The only pressure I have is the fear of losing.

“On paper he should turn up and win, but I am one million per-cent confident I will win.”

The ‘Road To Glory’ bill also features a vacant European light-middleweight  title fight between Ryan Rhodes and Sergey Rabchenko, Martin Murray in championship action and Richard Towers facing Michael Wallisch for the vacant EU heavyweight crown.

There will be a talent stacked undercard that will include former British and Commonwealth welterweight champion Craig Watson, unbeaten hopefuls Adam Etches, Scott Jenkins and Adam Little.

Ticket prices are now on sale priced £125 (VIP Inner Ringside + exclusive cash bar), £100 Ringside, £55, £35 and £30. 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

I'd give the slight edge to Munroe in this bout but I can see why the bookies have made Quigg a favourite. He's the up & comer & all the money, especially around Manchester, is going to be on the…
