Rendall Munroe says he is already starting to get ready for a rematch, after his fight on Saturday (15 June) ended in the third round.
The boxer, from Leicester, was left with a deep cut above his right eye after an accidental clash of heads with his opponent, fellow British super-bantamweight Scott Quigg.
Rendall expects the rematch to take place after the Euro 2012 and the Olympics are over.
