Rendall Munroe vs Josh Warrington for the Commonwealth Featherweight title

Rendall Munroe will challenge Josh Warrington for the Commonwealth Featherweight title at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on April 19, live on Sky Sports.

Munroe tackled Lee Selby for the British and European titles in Cardiff in February, losing out to the Welsh stylist via a sixth round stoppage, and the 33 year old says that proving he still has a lot to give after that fight is more than enough motivation to take the Commonwealth belt from the unbeaten Leeds fighter.

Selby stops Munroe; Buckland defeats Rees; Joshua destroys Darch

British featherweight champion Lee Selby (18-1, 7 KO’s) had an easy time defeating former World title challenger Rendall Munroe (27-4-1, 11 KO’s) by a 7th round stoppage on Saturday night to win the vacant European featherweight strap at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom.

Leading up to the stoppage, Selby hurt Munroe with a right hand that sent him backwards into the corner where he was taking shots until Lewis stopped the fight. Continue reading

Rendall Munroe: I can still win a World title

Rendall Munroe bids to become a two-weight European champion when he faces Lee Selby for the vacant Featherweight crown at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on Saturday live on Sky Sports, and says he still has designs on World title glory.

The Leicester man stayed away from the fight game for just four months though and was back in action in his hometown in May with a first round win. Continue reading
