Boxing: Rendall Munroe aiming to turn Scott Quigg's dreams into a nightmare
Rendall Munroe says he is already in the mood to wreck Scott Quigg's interim WBA super-bantamweight title dreams.
The Leicester southpaw and Bury's British champion meet again in Manchester on November 24 on the bill that sees Ricky Hatton return to action.
The pair had to settle for a technical draw when their first meeting in June was halted in the third round after Munroe suffered a horrific cut above his right eye.
But the city favourite is already getting into top gear in his preparations and is itching to get back in the ring with Quigg, who this month was voted the country's best young fighter by the Boxing Writers' Club.

"Scott will say he was going to knock me out last time and all that rubbish," said Munroe.
"Fair play to him for having those dreams. We were only two and a half rounds into the fight and I was confident I was going to do what I wanted. I hadn't even started getting going.
"Everything is going good and I am already fit. I am going to go out there and do what needs to be done."
Munroe, who describes himself as a 'trainaholic', has already been putting himself through the ringer for the past month under the watchful eye of trainer Jason Shinfield.
However, the fact that the re-match comes on such a high-profile bill at Manchester Arena is further incentive for Munroe, the former undefeated European and Commonwealth super-bantamweight champion.
"It is good that so many people will see the fight on a big card, because it will show I am still hungry and climbing the ladder," he said.
Quigg has had a spell in America preparing for the showdown.
On his return, he said: "Our first fight was just starting to get going when the heads clashed. I've heard that Rendall has recovered and I am glad for him.
"I think Rendall was shocked by my power and I know that I will have to raise my game again for the rematch."
Around 5,000 people were at Manchester Velodrome to see the much-anticipated first Munroe-Quigg clash, but the Manchester Arena has already sold out for Hatton's return against Vyacheslav Senchenko, which means a crowd of around 20,000 will be there.
