McEwan May Dump The British Scene For American Return

By Edward Chaykovsky

After getting stopped in six rounds by Peter Quillin last November in Mexico, Scottish middleweight Craig McEwan (21-2, 10KOs) returned to Scotland to restart his career and also to pursue British and European championships.

The local pursuit of championship belts did not work out as McEwan had expected. He won two fights in Scotland, easily on points, but attempting to secure bigger opportunities has been a waste of McEwan's time. The fighter is not making money and views a return to the United States as the only sure path to saving his career.

“I’m seriously thinking about it [leaving the British scene]. It might be after Christmas. I have my wife, who is a teacher, and kids to think about. My kids are settled here but I might have to go back to save my career," McEwan told The Daily Record.

“Before coming here I thought I could get involved in British, European and Commonwealth titles but nobody seems to want to entertain me. I am 30 and have four years left but if you are not getting the fights you begin to wonder if it’s worth it?"

“I am just working away at the gym waiting for something to happen. I feel guilty. I come home and have earned nothing while my wife is out there working. That’s pretty hard to take.”

[QUOTE=Sparked_26;12475507]I agree. I'm annoyed that John Duddy missed out on that party too. They could have all defined their careers against each other. A bad fight can't be made with them.[/QUOTE] It's annoying they haven't fought yet, really think all…

I still see McEwen vs Kerry Hope for the vacant Celtic title, doubling as a final eliminator for the British title as the way forward.
