Quigg was slightly heavier at 8st 9lb 12oz (121lb 12oz) while magnificently sculptured Munroe weighed 8st 9lb 10oz (121lb 10oz).
As they posed for picture Munroe unleashed a verbal barrage at Quigg who laughed off the pre-fight taunts.
Unbeaten Quigg is the bookies favourite and the Bury star said: “I am the one who has it all to prove, but I am one million per-cent confident I can beat Rendall.
“He's going to pressure me, but I have got a good defence and I haven’t dedicated myself to boxing since I was a kid to fail now.
“Beat Rendall and I am up there among the very best in the division and looking at even bigger fights.”
Former European champion and world champion Munroe knows it will be a long climb back to world level it he loses against the British title holder.
He said: “Since I gave up work last year I have had a lot more time to work on things like strength and conditioning and I am sure I will reap the rewards against Scott.
“He is a good kid, but I have been at elite level for a long time and I don’t think he is ready to step up just yet.”
