Super bantamweight Rendall Munroe (21-2, 9KOs) is set for a change of direction. The Leicester Mercury reports that Munroe has left promoter Frank Maloney and signed a deal with Ricky Hatton's company, Hatton Promotions. Munroe was set to return on April 9 on a Maloney card at Rainton Meadows. That fight is now off. Munroe will now return on April 16 at the MEN in Manchester, on the undercard of Amir Khan-Paul McCloskey, which is co-promoted by Hatton.
"Rendall sees it as a new challenge for himself," said Munroe's manager, Mike Shinfield. "Hatton Promotions are fairly new in the promoting game and they are very ambitious as we are with Rendall. They have good contacts with Sky TV and also with Golden Boy promotions in the United States."Tags: Ricky Hatton , Rendall Munroe
