Rendall Munroe-Scott Quigg Bout in Play For May or June

World rated super-bantamweight Rendall Munroe is set to go head-to head with British champion Scott Quigg in the summer after the fight was agreed between the two Hatton Promotions stablemates.

Munroe, 31, who has fought for a world title and is rated highly by the WBC, has been patiently waiting for a shot at another world champion but is now ready to face Quigg in a huge domestic clash according to manager Mike Shinfield.

"The fight with Scott Quigg is going to happen, we have come to an agreement about it," Shinfield told The Leicester Mercury.

"I think that Rendall will be too strong and have too much experience for Quigg. Quigg has youth on his side but I don't think he can live with Rendall over 12 rounds."

23 year-old Quigg has a perfect 24-0 record, taking his time in getting to the top of the British ranks over the past five years, and a victory over Munroe would quickly catapult the Bury man into the WBC Top 10 at 122lbs.
