RENDALL MUNROE will meet Mexican Victor Terrazas in a final eliminator for the WBC world super-bantamweight title.

 

Leicester southpaw Munroe expects the battle for the right to challenge for Toshiaki Nishioka’s crown to take place in next February or March.

 

The WBC have mandated the fight and the fighter’s promoters HG Boxing and Frank Maloney, who handles Munroe can have private negotiations until January 14.

 

If no agreement is reached, the fight will go to immediate purse bids.

 

Maloney said: “I am meeting Rendall and his manager Mike Shinfield at Millwall’s FA Cup tie against Derby County on January 2.

 

“We will sit down then and discuss the fight and discuss the options available to us.

 

“Obviously we would like to avoid purse bids and bring Terrazas to England, but appreciate how hard that might be.

 

“Whatever happens, at least Rendall knows he is just one win away from the fight he wants so much.”

 

Terrazas (25-1-1) was knocked out on his pro debut in March 2003, but has remained unbeaten since then.

 

The 26-year-old has won 13 fights inside the distance and holds the Mexican super-bantamweight and WBC FECARBOX featherweight titles

 

Munroe (20-1) currently holds the Commonwealth and European super-bantamweight crowns.

And if he does defeat Tezzazas he will most likely have to travel to Japan for his shot at the title.

Rendall Munroe's final eliminator for a world-title fight will take place at the Coventry Skydome.

 

Leicester's European and Commonwealth super-bantamweight takes on the Mexican, Victor Terrazas, on Friday, April 23 and promoter Frank Maloney promises it will be "one of the best nights of boxing in the area for many years."

 

Maloney said: "I'm very pleased, it is a good-size venue with more than 3,000 seats and it will be a step-up into the big arenas for Rendall.

 

"The venue is only about 20 minutes away from Leicester so we're expecting tremendous support for him.

 

"It would be marvellous to see thousands of people in their fluorescent yellow jackets cheering him on."

 

Maloney was hoping to stage the showdown – the winner earning a crack at the WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka of Japan – in Leicestershire. However, no suitable venue was available.

 

He said: "The ones we looked at, like Loughborough University, were just too small. And I think now is the time for Rendall to leave the leisure halls and move into the big arena.

 

"This is big-time boxing for Rendall and we want to put him up there alongside other great British fighters such as David Haye, Carl Froch and Amir Khan.

 

"The Coventry Skydome will be a perfect setting. The fight will also be shown live on Sky TV."

 

Munroe, 29, is the top-rated contender for the WBC crown with 19 wins from 20 contests, five of them European title defences. Terrazas is ranked third and has 25 wins from 27 fights, but has never fought outside Mexico.

 

Mike Shinfield, Munroe's manager, said: "We're confident of filling the place.

 

"The Mexican is tough, comes forward and is not pretty to watch.

 

"We've seen tapes and think this will suit Rendall's style. But this is a final eliminator for a world title and any fight like this is not going to be easy."

 

On the undercard, Martin Concepcion faces a rematch with Kevin Hammond. Leicester's Midland Area light-middleweight champion narrowly beat his Lincoln opponent on points at the Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre last week.

 

The pair went into the last of 10 rounds even but Concepcion just edged it in the last three minutes. The verdict, however, was so close that Maloney thinks it is only right to stage a rematch.
