Which fighter was the "Boxing Binman"? asked Ken Graham

This is the Leicester boxer Rendall Munroe, whose day job was as a dustman. Often he and his seconds would go to the ring dressed in the yellow fluorescent jackets worn by binmen.

Munroe, who was born in Leicester in 1980, held the European and Commonwealth super-bantamweight titles in 2009 and 2009. However, a recent comeback was ended by a mouth injury - Munroe quit his challenge for the Commonwealth featherweight belt in April before the seventh round, leaving the Yorkshireman Josh Warrington as the title-holder.

After that Warrington fight Munroe announced his retirement - but he has retired before and come back, so he might not be returning the dustcart just yet.
