Churcher secures biggest fight of his career

Churcher secures biggest fight of his career

Ex-Welsh Area middleweight champion Lee ‘Lights Out’ Churcher (12-3-1, 3KO) has secured the biggest opportunity of his career.

The 34-year-old will travel to Scotland to face Craig McEwan (22-4-1, 11KO) at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley on a show sanctioned by the Malta Boxing Commission [MBC].

The British Boxing Board of Control [BBBoC] won’t re-license Churcher, who is on a six fight winning streak, until he serves the remainder of his probation period after admitting conspiracy to supply cocaine.

After coming from behind to stop Barrie Jones and win the Welsh Area title in 2012, a 32 month ring absence commenced and Churcher would serve 21 months of a four year sentence.

The ex-army fitness instructor returned in March, dropping and out-pointing journeyman Matt Scriven in Nottingham. In May, Churcher completed anther routine four rounder in Liverpool when he again dropped and out-pointed his opponent, Latvian import Andrejs Loginovs.

McEwan turned professional in America and fought the first 20 fights of his career there, many spent under the guidance of famed trainer Freddie Roach at the Wildcard Gym in Los Angeles.

When the 33-year-old suffered back-to-back stoppage defeats to future WBO world champions Andy Lee and Peter Quillin, he returned home. Despite home comforts, McEwan struggled to regain his previous momentum, losing twice more, once to novice prospect Larry Ekundayo in the Prizefighter format and then to American journeyman Dashon Johnson.
