Quigg vs Munroe is Booked For June 16th in Manchester

THE WBA ‘interim’ super-bantamweight title clash between Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe will take place at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday 16th June.

It is one of the biggest domestic clashes this year, between the men who are both promoted by Hatton Promotions.

Sky Sports will broadcast the 12 round clash which will be supported by a top class championship undercard.

Promoter Ricky Hatton said: “It is about giving the public what they want and I am sure that we can attract a big crowd to the Velodrome.

“Our Director of Boxing Richard Poxon is working on a quality undercard that will give the fans great value and night to look forward to.”

British champion Quigg, 23, is one of world boxing’s brightest prospects and unbeaten in 24 professional contests.

The Bury hopeful won the  British title last year forcing Jason Booth to quit on his stool and stopped Jamie Arthur in his first defence last month.

Boxing bin man Rendall, 31, who has won 24 contests and lost just twice, is a former Commonwealth and European champion.

The Leicester southpaw has already fought at the highest level, challenging Toshiaki Nishioka for the WBC crown in Tokyo back in October 2010 losing on points.

Full ticket details including the on-sale date will be confirmed early next week, but you can register your interest by calling 01925 755 222

[QUOTE=Dem Eyes;11952006]I doubt Frampton ' easily ' beats Quigg either. Quigg is open though and susceptible to big shots but if he can box and keep Frampton on the outside he can win on points.[/QUOTE] I was under the impression…

[QUOTE=alfredperami;11952037]Seen both fighting from the start and Frampton is every king of wrong for Quigg. Scott is a very very stupid individual that has a big belief in his vastly overrated skill set, Frampton beats him before they get in…
