BETFAIR
punters make Scottish fighter Craig McEwan the 7-4 favourite to win the
final Betfair Prizefighter of 2012, the Light Middleweight III event at
York Hall in Bethnal
Green, London, tomorrow night.  
Edinburgh-born
McEwan, who has spent most of his career boxing in America, will be
hoping to triumph on his return to the UK. The 30-year-old looks like
the man
to beat in the fight for the £32,000 winner’s cheque.

The
inexperienced Larry Ekundayo, with just two previous fights to his
name, is next in the betting at 11-4 to lift the coveted trophy, the
novice having looked
particularly impressive during those previous bouts. Hard-hitting
Curtis Valentine is an 8-1 shot, as is McEwan’s fellow Scot, Kris
Carslaw.  
12-1
chance Navid Mansouri, Ryan Toms at 18-1, 19-1 shot Terry Carruthers
and Peter Vaughan, available at 24-1, complete the line-up.
Betfair’s
Alex Bake said: “We’re excited to be back at York Hall for the final
Betfair Prizefighter of the year. The Scots look on great form and our
punters are backing McEwan
to come out on top. But with a brand new £2,000 bonus on offer for a KO
victory, expect lots of big punches to be thrown, and when that happens
every fighter is in with a chance.”

7-4 Craig McEwan, 11-4 Larry Ekundayo, 8-1 Curtis Valentine, Kris
Carslaw, 12-1 Navid Mansouri, 18-1 Ryan Toms, 19-1 Terry Carruthers,
