Retirement short-lived: Rendall Munroe to make ring return on May 12th

By James Slater

So much for former WBC super-bantamweight title challenger Rendall Munroe’s retirement. “2-Tone” announced he’d quit the ring shortly after his 6th-round TKO defeat to Scott Quigg in November of last year, with the 32-year-old citing weight problems and motivational problems. But today, as has been reported in Leicester Mercury, Munroe will move up to either super-featherweight or maybe even lightweight as he resumes his career.

Munroe will fight a TBA in his hometown of Leicester on May 12th.

“I know I can still be a world champion,” he said. “I’ve been sparring and it’s definitely still there. I had been making 8st 10lbs (122-pounds) for a long time and I don’t think keeping my weight down for all those years did me any good.

“I had got fed up with how I was treated as well. I had worked hard, proved I was good enough to fight at world level and ended up fighting at domestic level again, I struggled to get up for my last fight.”

Munroe, who says he walks around at 10st (140-pounds) is currently 24-3-1(10).
