Munroe Targets Dunne Clash


Recommended Posts

European super-bantamweight champion Rendall Munroe has targeted a clash with Bernard Dunne.


The Leicester binman is willing to risk next year's world title challenge against WBC 8st 10lb champion Toshiaki Nishioka and face the Irishman first.


Munroe (20-1) is ranked second in the world by the WBC and underlined his world-title credentials outpointing Simone Maludrottu last week.


Dunne meanwhile hasn't fought since losing his WBA crown in three rounds to Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym in September.


Munroe's promoter Frank Maloney said: "We made a fantastic offer for Bernard to face Munroe last year and I never heard a word from Dunne's camp.


"I am now willing to make them another offer to face Munroe early next year if they are brave enough to step forward. All his manager, Brian Peters has to do is call and lets see if he is up for the challenge, but somehow I doubt it.


"People might think I'm crazy to want the match, but Rendall could do with a knockout before facing Nishioka."
