McEwen vs Ouma on Mayweather-Ortiz Undercard

By Chris LaBate

Junior middleweight Craig McEwan (19-1, 10KOs) tells the Edinburgh Evening News that his next scheduled fight will take place on the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Victor Ortiz undercard on September 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. McEwan will face former IBF champion Kassim Ouma (27-8-1, 17KOs). In his last fight, Ouma lost a spirited effort against WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. Ouma was stopped in the tenth and went to the hospital afterwards. McEwan returns from his March knockout loss to Andy Lee. Ouma is sparring with Mayweather in Las Vegas.

"Ouma is going to be one of my toughest opponents - he took Jermaine Taylor the distance back in 2005 for both the WBO and WBC world titles," said McEwan. "He was also the IBF's world light-middleweight champion."

"I've never trained harder than I am now at my cornerman Billy Nelson's gym. I've even been sparring with Steve Simmons and Gary McMillan at the Lochend gym in Edinburgh too, so I'm in good shape and feeling really sharp. I need to show the American boxing people and Golden Boy Promotions, who back me, that my loss to Andy Lee was just a glitch and that I'm still a world-class performer.''

Ouma needs to retire, before he gets seriously injured!! I can't believe he's on the card.
