WBA International Super Bantamweight Champion Rendall Munroe is set to dump his gloves, albeit temporarily, and lace up his boots and take part in the upcoming TRAD TKO Boxing Gym Boxers and Celebrity Charity Football Tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust, at Concord Rangers FC, in Canvey Island, Essex on Sunday 14th August 2011.
Rendall shot to fame in 2008 following his sensational, against the odds, victory over then European champion Spaniard Kiko Martinez. Rendall defended his European crown six times, as well as added the Commonwealth title to his collection in May 2009.
In October 2010 Rendall vacated his Commonwealth and European titles and traveled to Tokyo Japan to challenge WBC World Champion Toshiaki Nishioka for his crown. After twelve sensation rounds Nishioka retained his title for the sixth time.
Rendall felt that he had learned from the experience, of fighting on the World stage, and went straight on the Championship trail. On the 16th April this year Rendall added the WBA International belt to his collection with a sensational, unanimous points, victory over Belarus’ Andrei Isaeu.
The next big date on Rendall’s calendar is Sunday 14th August, when he will play in the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym Boxers and Celebrity Charity Football Tournament in Canvey Island, as he explained earlier by phone, “As soon as I heard on Ringside that Johnny was putting on the event I knew that I wanted to get involved and help raise some money for the Indee Rose Trust.
I’m just an average guy, besides boxing I enjoy playing football, so it really appealed to me.
It’ll be a great fun day out for everyone, I’m well up for it and it’s a good cause we’ll be playing for.”
On August 14th Rendall will be joining Johnny, and boxing stars Nathan Cleverly, Matthew Macklin, Kevin Mitchell, Ricky Burns, Barry McGuigan, Paul and Stephen Smith, Willie Limond, Tony Oakey, Ross Minter, Martin Power etc.; will be joined by celebrities such as Alex Reid (MMA), Johnny Borrell (Razorlight), Mark Wingett (Jim Carver – The Bill), Stephen Bell (Coronation Street), various of the Eastenders and Shameless cast etc. at the Concord Rangers FC ground on Canvey Island.
