After the delight of securing a win in his first ever professional fight in the UK, Craig McEwan finds himself back on familiar territory this week. The Scottish middleweight moved to 20-2 (10) after a one-sided points victory over Paul Morby on April 14. Freely confessing to not learning anything from the fight and viewing it, with complete respect, as a sparring session the 30-year-old was however thrilled to back in front of home supporters.

It was a great experience, McEwan told Boxingscene.com.

Ive got so many people who follow me via the internet, who dont get to watch me fight so this was a chance for me to repay them for all their support. It was good to get some rounds under my belt and it wouldve been nice to get the knockout.

Next week the Scot returns to his old stomping ground of the Wildcard Gym. And as McEwan tries to make some noise both in Britain and America, regarding future fights, he will use his free time sparring the likes of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Peter Quillin in preparation for their upcoming fights against Andy Lee and Winky Wright respectively.

McEwan is no stranger to sparring some of the biggest names in the sport, having traded leather and sweat with the likes of Antonio Margarito, Alfredo Angulo and Bernard Hopkins to name but a few.

Now, with renewed confidence and aspirations, he hopes to take all of this education process into something bigger and more meaningful. It appears to have dawned on him that to get the fights hes going to have to do a bit of shouting and banging on some doors. And he hopes the introduction of @CraigMcEwan13 to twitter will help his cause.

Im still a novice at twitter and Im still learning, joked McEwan.

I read the tweets flying back forth between [Matthew] Macklin and [Martin] Murray regarding a possible fight. I want a piece of that too. And I dont see any reason why not. Im certainly good enough to beat them both. If they fought I could easily fight the winner.

In fact I dont see any reason why there couldnt be a middleweight tournament in the UK. Me, Macklin, Murray, [Darren] Barker and [Kerry] Hope. Thats decent fights for us all, everyone would make money from it and Sky Television and the fans would lap it up.

Id beat them all. Its my time now to put my name out there. I dont tend to call anyone out but in this world if you dont ask you dont get.

A tournament such as the Scot suggested has been mentioned on some of the boxing forums in the past and would surely do big business in Britain. If his ideal scenario does not come off he does have a worthy alternative. One that begins with him chapping on the door of his promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions and demanding big fights.

McEwan was keen to point out that his return to America should quash any rumours that he and long time trainer Freddie Roach wouldnt work again and, as is so often asked, he remains promotionally tied to Golden Boy.

If his shouts are loud enough, McEwan hopes that an Andy Lee world title victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in June may lead to a rematch from their dramatic encounter back in March of last year. A tale of what might have been for Craig.

Fair play to him [Lee] he came back and got me in the end but I had him in that fight, he recalled.

I do think Lee has a great chance against Chavez. He can punch and if he turns up in the right frame of mind then he can definitely do it. Chavez needs to watch out. And if Andy wins hopefully he can make me his first defence.
