The two best super-bantamweights in British boxing Rendall Munroe and Scott Quigg will face off on June 16th in Manchester for the interim WBA title.
Ricky Hatton, who is the promoter of both fighters had this to say: "I think Rendall Munroe, Scott Quigg, the two best in the division, with Carl Frampton waiting in the wings, is an exciting time for British boxing. ... Ideally the winner of (Quigg-Monroe), I would like him to fight Carl Frampton. ... It's up to us promoters to get it on. ... Carl's not ranked in the world rankings yet. His ability is -- I'm a big fan. ... He's a hugely exciting prospect. He's ranked No. 3 in Britain, but nowhere in the world rankings."
However, Carl Frampton and his manager Barry McGuigan believe that 'The Jackal' is the No.1 super-bantamweight in Britain although he has only had half of the amount of fights that both Quigg and Munroe have had.
Frampton is promoted by Eddie Hearn and Matchroom boxing who recently worked with Hatton Promotions on March 17th for the fight between Kell Brook and Ricky's little brother Matthew Hatton in Sheffield. The fight sold around 10,000 tickets.
Quigg has a record of 24-0, 17 KO with his last fight being a victory over Jamie Arthur where he was knocked down in the 4th round but went on to stop Arthur in the 8th round.
Munroe (24-2, 10 KO) had his last fight against Jose Saez on the same card. He stopped Saez in just 2 minutes 50 seconds in his third straight win since losing to Toshiaki Nishioka in October 2010.
'The Boxing Bin Man' will definitely be Quigg's toughest opponent in his career so far. It is a great period for the British super-bantamweight division with three top quality fighters in business with prospects such as Kid Galahad looking to join them.
