Mathew Rennie is one of the few professional sportsman to emerge from the Isle of Man in recent years. ‘Magic’ Matthew turned pro in November 2018 when he beat Gary McGuire on points, before his only blip next time out drawing against decent Ben Fields.

He kicked on from that minor setback and in four subsequent fights outpointed MJ Hall, Naheem Chaudhry, Des Newton and Josue Bendana, in March 2020
Following an 18 month layoff caused by the pandemic, Rennie returned in September 2021 and stepped up to six rounds, beating Carl Turney on points, flooring his rival in round one.

He continued his winning ways in his first fight of 2022 with a 60-54 points success over Manchester trier Dean Wilkinson. Matthew dropped back to four rounds in his final bout of 2022 where he outpointed reliable Rustem Fatkhullin
2023 promises to be his biggest so far with speculation of a title match up against VIP stablemate Luke Evans.

He warmed up for the bigger nights when he was given a serious test in March 2023 by Estathios Antonas, a Greek boxer who appears on VIP cards. Antonas had his moments especially in round two and the pair served up the Fight of the Night at
Liverpool Olympia, but Rennie was a 59-56 winner after a cracking six round battle.
The Michael and Dave Jennings trained boxer’s 10th win came in some style stopping Jake Osgood in round one, his first inside the distance win.

He made his first big step up in December 2023, and came out a triumphant points winner over VIP stablemate James Moorcroft. The offers for bigger fights are coming in and VIP head Steve Wood will deliver in 2024 Rennie was a finalist in the 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games, defeating Ropati Potoa Hall and Kieran McMaster before being defeated on points by Ireland’s Aidan Walsh in the final.
The Manx boxer who has moved to Liverpool for training has also worked with the England and GB amateur squads.
