Munroe might just win this, going into round 11 with a clear margin imo.

Munroe won some shitty judging though won an MD, but he was a clear winner.

Those scores scared the shit out of me when I heard them being anounced. I had it by a clear margin of at least four rounds. Still Munroe won and won well.

Martinez exposed and an unimpressive display by both men.

Decent performance by the underdog. Certainly nothing too special from either man. Martinez looked shit.

Domestic level.

I thought Rendall executed a very good plan very well and showed maturaty behond his ring experience. Kiko was poor and had no idea what to do, very disapointing performance but you have got to give Munroe credit. The lad is Euro champion so obviously above domestic level. How long he stays there who knows but hopefully Maloney will give him a few domestic guys such has Pickering and maybe McCulloch if he still plans a comeback. After two or three build up fights give him a few of the other good Europeans and see where he's at at that stage.

Wayne would have stopped Martinez last night.

Kiki is one paced and reminds me of a bad version of Ricardo Mayorga

Still, Munroe did alright and knew how to avoid him do do enough to win most of the rounds.

I had it 117-112 Munroe

To be fair from the 8th onwards he started putting a good bit more behind his punches and I suspect if he hadn't those judges would of given it to Martinez .

I have a feeling the judges gave most of the early rounds to Martinez and the late ones to Munroe .

i was just surprised at how much power he lacked,although i know he's not a big hitter.he actually did better in the fight when he forced martinez back and unloaded a few combinations.martinez was very limited going forward,but going back he was absolutely clueless.

I thought Rendall fought a game plane expecting Kiko to be really good, powerful and full of blitz. I can not believe Dunne got done over by that guy. It is hard to understand that the Kiko we saw last night was the same one that destroyed Dunne, maybe the weight problems played on his mind and stopped him from launching a meaningful attack. We all expected Munroe to play it extremely safe and keep away for the first half of the fight then try coming on has the fight wore on.

I know the pitter patter punchers were pathetic but he worked a very good gameplan and won the title. The judges were ****s though.

Thought Munroe boxed his ears off. He fought a very good tactical fight and thoroghly deserved the title. The pitter patter punches knocked Martinez out of his stride and from them on Rendall took control.
