Last Saturday I watched Rendall Munroe slip to defeat against Lee Selby.

Contesting the European featherweight title I thought Rendell looked a shadow of the fighter that rose through the ranks to earn a world title shot.

At the age of 33 Munroe looked to lack ideas and was easily picked off by Selby as Munroe moved forward in straight lines.

Following the fight I questioned whether Munroe should continue in a sport he has given so much to.

Well it appears that Munroe has every intention of carrying on and has told the media,

?My dad always said sometimes things get hard but it is just a test of how bad you really want it. I am not finished yet. I am still young and still lively?

‘I am not finished yet. I’m a born and bred fighter, a fighter who is as fit as they come and I will stand there all night.?

‘If you want to do 30 rounds, I will do 30 rounds.’

‘Look how good I looked on the scales. I have never looked that good on the scales through all the time I have been boxing.’


I?m sorry Rendall but looking good on the scales but producing a lacklustre performance like that given last Saturday, down in Cardiff, are two different things.

Despite the brave words I feel the end is nigh for a career that has entertained us all.
