It's too early to say.

Munroe has a better chin, and also his the ability to cover up better than Dunne. He would also have a size and reach advantage over the Thai man.

Let's see how he fares against Maludrottu first - I think he will win that one on points.

Will most likely be Nishioka after that.....

Munroe would get knocked out. Dunne would still beat Munroe btw, Dunne's weakness is a big puncher which the binman aint.

Munroe has yet to be tested by the top class fighters yet. I think Dunne would have a little bit more than Munroe but those are opinions. We will never see the fight happening it would make both fighters a bit of money if it did happen but I dont think Munroe would be able to enough people to watch him fight Dunne in the UK compared to what Dunne would get in the o2.

loss on points id say, the thai would be too busy and his shots would have more of an effect than munroes would on him, it would be a closer fight than last night due to styles and punch resistance but the thai would win imo, possbly 116 112 region

Dunne has more skills, Dunne has more power, Munroe has no power, so yes Dunne beats Munroe.

Let's have a bit of perspective here, Dunne just lost to one of the best at the weight. Munroe is not even near Poonsawats level so let's not get carried away now thinking Munroe would beat Dunne. Styles make fights and Poonsawat's style was all wrong for Dunne.

I think you have to give Munroe a chance against Poon, Bernard was always going to have some problems if the power was there for the visitor as we thought it might be.

However, Munroe's chin is decent and he can execute a plan ala Martinez in fight 1, so you cannot rule him out.

Lest we forget Sidorenko outboxed this guy, yes it was closer than the cards but he won it well never the less.

Munroe would have a chance and to be fair a big chance especially with home advantage, he would be a lot bigger that Poon on the night, he has fast hands, he moves well and as with Martinez he will know this guy wants to take his head off and won't wait around for it.

I know Martinez is not on Poon's level before you all jump on that one but styles make fights and Munroe could just be all wrong for Poon.

Dunne is a good fighter but blimey he is well overrated. Styles make fights but there is no way Munroe would get sparked out like that. Munroe actually has a quality chin whereas Dunne doesnt. To be truely world class you need a top chin. Need I say more. Dunne was smashed to pieces by Martinez where Munroe fought him twice and didnt go down once in 24 rounds?? Nedd I say anymore.

Styles make fights that's true but you can't get away from the fact that Martinez destroyed Dunne and Munroe twiced proved far too strong for Martinez. How anyone can say Dunne would beat Munroe is puzzling.

Munroe would just pressure him and pressure him and either stop him late or win on points.
