SCOTT QUIGG insists Rendall Munroe will be worried about being cut up again in their rematch on Saturday.
Former Leicester binman Munroe, 32, needed nine stitches to close a gaping wound by his eye – opened up by a clash of heads in a three-round technical draw with Quigg last June.
The pair meet again for the WBA interim bantamweight title at the Manchester Arena on Saturday and Bury fighter Quigg, 24, insists Munroe will be concerned about the scar opening up.
He said: “With the sort of cut it was, it doesn’t matter how much sparring you do with headguards on, no one knows how it will hold out until the night.
“It’s a bonus for me that the scar is untested and they will be worried about it, despite what they say.
“I’ve trained harder for this than the first fight and I’m confident I will do a number on Rendall.”
Also on the same bill is former world middleweight title challenger Martin Murray, 30, who faces Venezuelan Jorge Navarro for the WBA interim title and could be in line for a crack at world No.1 Sergio Martinez next year.
