Scott Quigg remains confident he will beat Rendall Munroe when they clash again on the undercard of Ricky Hatton's return to the ring.

The pair battle it out for the interim WBA super-bantamweight title after their first fight was declared a technical draw just three rounds in following a clash of heads that caused a gash above Munroe's eye.

Many felt Quigg had the upper hand in the early exchanges back in June but the former British champion insists that will mean nothing at the M.E.N Arena on November 24.

"Whatever happened in the first fight doesn't mean anything," he said. "I know what he was coming to do and he's going to change that up, and obviously he's seen what I was trying to do.

"I've got to come up with something different and so has he - if not I'm going to have him sussed straight away.

"We were only three rounds in, I was comfortable and what we'd been working on in the gym was working. It's going to be a tough fight, but I'm confident."

Former binman Munroe is ranked above Quigg in the domestic lists and he is determined to prove that is still the case.

"Obviously I want to prove I'm still number one and to box for a world title, obviously that prolonged things a bit for me but some things are done for a reason," he said.

"I'm not bothered where it is. It's nice that there'll be even more fans to see me when I make my mark as still the number one."

A stacked undercard will feature the return of Martin Murray against an as-yet un-named opponent, while Sergey Rabchenko will make the first defence of his European light-middleweight title against Cedric Vitu (35-1) of France.
