Rendall Munroe in Tears, Admits It's 'No Longer There'

As previously reported, Josh Warrington defended his Commonwealth featherweight title by forcing veteran Rendall Munroe to retire on his stool after seven rounds. Munroe, who was unbeaten in six European title fights and fought Toshiaki Nishioka for the WBC title, looked a shadow of his former self for a second fight in a succession and called time on his career in the post-fight interview.

"I love the sport and the training, but there comes a time when the sharpness isn't there," a tearful Munroe told Sky Sports. "My trainer and manager were telling me it's not there and I always said when they tell me it's time to call it a day, it's time.

"At the end of the day I went to Japan, fought the best in the world, I never reached my goal but I love the sport and my fans and a big thank you to them."

Warrington moves to 17-0 with his second stoppage in a row and is looking forward to making his name in the featherweight division.

"I was always a fan of Rendall and I was expecting a dangerous man and I prepared for one," he said.

"I like winning belts so we'll see what happens, maybe the British belt will become vacant and I'd like to have a shot at that."
