By Chris LaBate

Middleweight contender Craig McEwan was preparing to fight former champion Kassim Ouma on the non-televised portion of the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz undercard, which takes place this coming Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. McEwan says the fight was canceled after Ouma requested additional money at the late hour. Golden Boy Promotions will attempt to place McEwan on a UK event being staged by promoter Frank Warren in November.

"I was totally fired up for my scrap with Ouma. It was a major chance for me to reestablish myself in the American ratings after losing for the first time as a pro in America against Andy Lee. I was actually packing for my flight back to the US when the phone rang and I heard the Ouma fight was off," McEwan told The Scotsman. "Golden Boy have told me that the best I can hope for now is a fight on a Frank Warren-promoted show in November."

I spoke to Craig this morning and he has no idea where this story came from. He tells me he did NOT tell the journalist, Brian Donald, anything of the sort! Brian Donald has a reputation for getting his stories wrong and this is obviously another one!

:Lol1: at Ouma, he is a bum but thinks that being Floyds cannon fodder in sparring makes him capable of giving demands. Ask Floyd for a cash-advance or hit me up next time you know Floyd is carrying around a few hundred K.
