Josh Warrington says he will pass his toughest test yet with flying colours when he defends his Commonwealth Featherweight title against Rendall Munroe at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.
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.
RENDALL MUNROE knows he needs to put on a polished performance in Blackpool this weekend in order to keep his name in title contention.
This past Saturday, Lee Selby won the European and retained the British Featherweight title with a 6th round stoppage over former world title challenger Rendall Munroe in a scheduled 12 round fight at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales.
The fight was shown LIVE in the United States on AWE
The official time of the stoppage was 1:31 of the round. Munroe wasn’t going anywhere even if he had survived the round, because he couldn’t handle the speed, power and size of Selby. Munroe was a very good fighter at one time, but he didn’t look it tonight. He looked like a fighter past his prime facing someone much too good for him. 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.
