Rendall Munroe Healing Fast, Eyes Return in Near Future

Rendall Munroe has denied he may have to retire because of the cut above the right eye he sustained in the fight against Scott Quigg earlier this month. The WBA interim super-bantamweight title fight ended as a technical draw after an accidental clash of heads left Munroe needing nine stitches.

"People were hearing I might be out for a long time and it could end my career," he told BBC Radio Leicester. "It's nothing of the sort. Everything is good. A little cut won't stop me."

The Leicester boxer has no doubts he will soon be back in the ring, despite fears the position of the deep wound was a threat to his future in the sport.

"It's healed really well," Munroe added. "I'm a healthy liver, so recovery comes quick as well. You would never even know unless someone said something. I have a little bit of a black eye but that's nothing compared to the damage on the night.

"A big thanks to the doctor who was there straight away to get on the case and stitch it up. Everything is healing up quick and fast and hopefully I'll soon be back in the ring finishing what I started."

"A little cut won't stop me" :lol1:, he's a gangsta [IMG][/IMG] But I think Quigg takes him in rematch, Munroe didn't look too well after first round of their fight. You never know what would happen, as Rendall very often…

That was shaping shaping up to be a nice fight. I still feel Munroe has something to offer at European level.
