Mansouri To Get Tested, Ready To Face Max Maxwell

After arriving on a grander stage following his Prizefighter appearance last November, Rotherham’s Nav Mansouri now has an admirable hunger to test himself on more gloried platforms. The Coldwell Boxing prospect was originally set to face tournament nemesis, Terry Carruthers, this Friday at his hometown’s Magna Centre but following the withdrawal of the Birmingham brawler, Mansouri now faces the former British title challenger, Max Maxwell, over eight rounds. The Yorkshire stylist is more than ready for the step up in class.

“Getting the chance to get revenge on Carruthers was something I was looking forward to but when he pulled out and Dave [Coldwell] suggested Maxwell, I jumped at the chance. I’ve got big plans in this sport and I really want to push on now and be fighting for domestic titles sooner rather than later. I’m in a division that’s wide open and there’s a lot of good names out there for me to test my skills against and Maxwell is certainly one of them. If I’m to get where I want to get to in this sport then beating Max Maxwell is something that I have to do.”

After compiling a ledger starring the familiar names of the domestic four-round circuit, Mansouri was handed a stern test last summer when he was opposed by London’s Nathan Graham. The exciting light-middleweight passed a thorough examination with flying colours as he halted Graham in the sixth round of a brutal contest that had fans on their feet throughout. Prizefighter followed but it wasn’t to be for Mansouri as he was eliminated at the semi-final stage but he jumps straight back into the deep end as he tackles a man who is well known amongst the leading names at 154lbs.

“It’s very rare you see Maxwell go out there and not give a good account of himself because he’s a tough man who has a lot of pride. He’s knocked out Brian Rose and he’s also asked a lot of Sam Webb and Erick Ochieng. These are fighters who have been at the top end of the light-middle scene for a while now and Maxwell has had small successes over all of them. This fight is a fight that can open a lot of doors for me because if I go in there and do a better job on him then what some other fighters have done then people are going to have to sit up and take notice.”
