I think that should be his newly acquired managers talent for promotion. Before he came on board Munroe,[ or Munore as Mendoza prefers,] was a lightly regarded nobody. His best wins were a news decision over a Sharkey who had been retired for 2 years and been absolutely hammered in his previous fight by Ruhlin ,who had also kod him before.
Sharkey had been stopped in 3 of his last 6 fights thrown out in another ,along with his opponent Maher for lack of action and won just one fight in 4 years.
Maher was Munroe's other" name" and like Sharkey thats all he had left his name, 35 years old, a total pisshead.
Maher had won his last fight on a DSQ against the epic Joe Grim a welter/middle, prior to that he had not won a fight for 2 years . Maher had been kod in his 3 fights before Grim in a total of 5 rds.
Those are Munroe's best victories
Fitz & Sharkey give their opinon of Munroe's chances below.
In this interview after the Maher/Munroe fight Jeffries gives his opinion the fight was fixed for Munroe to win and says," Munroe is not even a good second rater". That Maher has been washed up for years and could not even beat a lightweight.
In the link below Jeffries say he lost $1000 on the Munroe fight and he says he is anxious that" future opponents be well regarded by the sporting public".
The inference being the Munroe fight was a foregone conclusion ,and that he was NOT well regarded.
