HATTON Promotions will stage the domestic fight of the year when Britain’s TOP two super-bantamweights, Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe clash this summer. We are delighted to announce that Hatton Promotions stable-mates will meet on June 2 or 16 with the interim WBA title on the line. Venues are under consideration in Manchester and the Midlands for a 12 round battle that will capture the public’s imagination..
Hatton Promotions CEO Ricky Hatton said: “The fight has been brewing since Rendall signed with us and we have got there.
“It is about giving fans what they want and this is a match-up of the highest quality between two of the world’s best 8st 10lb boxers.
“The winner will go on to mix with the world’s elite fighters and it won’t be the end for the loser.
“It is possible he can fight Commonwealth champion Carl Frampton who is learning his trade and is a big prospect for the future.
“It is certainly the biggest fight Hatton Promotions have staged in the UK and I am sure the public will support it.”
British champion Quigg, 23, is one of world boxing’s brightest prospects and unbeaten in 24 professional contests.
The Bury hopeful won his 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.
NIshioka is a top ten pound for pounder and was recently elevated to Emeritus status.
The confirmed date, venue and ticket details will be announced at London and host venue press conferences next month
