McEwan, Valentine, Vaughan, Masnouri: Prizefighter 11/3

Middleweights contenders Craig McEwan (21-2, 10KOs), Curtis Valentine (5-2, 4KOs), Peter Vaughan (6-1-1, 1KO) and Navid Mansouri (8-0-1, 3KOs) have been announced by promoter Eddie Hearn as first four of the eight participants in the final Prizefighter tournament of 2012, taking place on November 3rd at York Hall in London.

"On the back of a great Prizefighter in Liverpool, we are going to have eight hungry guys lining up for the big prize in east London," said Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn.

"Craig gave Andy Lee one hell of a fight in March 2011 and he'll be wanting to get back to that level quickly. Curtis showed he has some serious power by beating Aston, Mansouri is an unbeaten man ready to step-up to title level and Peter is a big ticket seller with a lot of heart who loves a tear-up so fireworks are guaranteed."

McEwan's spent the past year over here and has wasted his time fighting opponents far, far inferior to himself. I guess the entrance into Prizefighter is just to earn some money but he really needs to be getting the best…

Despite his defeats I think McEwan is a level above these tournaments. It's basically a kind of boxing where the best fighter is less likely to win than would be the case in a full distance fight. But maybe he's…
