After a slow start Rendall Munroe came on strong in the 9th round to stop Mexican Victor Terrazas.

Terrazas who started the fight brightly and looked like a smooth operator, he was more positive and sharper than Munroe early on, Munroe who started the fight in a low gear and for the first…. rounds looked confused by Terrazas style and swift of punch.

Terrazas quick swinging punches were connecting effectively to Munroes head and body, but the 5th round saw a slight shift, when Munroe, worked Terrazas out and  stepped up his pace connecting well with his shots that began to back up the Mexican.

from the 6th Munroe’s strength seemed to be helping his cause now, with Terrazas looking uncomfortable constantly looking to his corner.

Once Munroe had worked Terrazas out, and the Mexican ran out of steam, it was only a matter of time for him. Munroe was just too strong and his relentless head and body attacks chopped Terrazas down, to set a world title shot up for the Leicester bin man. full report on tonight’s bill will follow.

Sunderlands Olympic bronze medallist Tony Jeffries continued the unbeaten start to his professional career with a points victory over Nathan King in their super-middleweight fight at the Coventry Skydome.
After an explosive start to the first round, Jeffries wasn’t himself and looked maybe weight drained with no snap in his work.
A flurry of blows followed midway through the second and although he was not having all his own way, ‘the Mighty Mackem’ was enjoying the upper hand as matters wore on.
King, who also lost on points to Olympic gold medallist James DeGale back in December, was showing his mettle and landed a huge right in the fifth. But it was Jeffries who had done enough to win it.
