I think he could be the next best thing to come out of scotland after scott harrison if he keeps learning the way he is. if you look at the clips from even his 3rd fight and the fight against nagy you can see the vast improvment already. I think him along with craig mcewan who is in america learning his trade and is with golden boy promotions can really put scotland back on the world stage again in years to come. Have you seen much of craig mcewan CHJ?
I like my featherweights to be snappier but he can turn out fairly decent, I don't see him reaching the level of Arthur or Harrison though. I suppose he is one of the better prospects the Brits have right now.

Not seen McEwan yet.

Havent seen very much myself of McEwan myself just know hes 6-0(5) and with golden boy promotions but read alot about him and he seems to be destined for the top and thats according to the US press so fingers crossed.

also McEwan is trained by freddie roach so cant imagine freddie wasting much time with someone who hasnt the potential to go right to the very top.

Theres no such thing as the UFC threat.

Maybe In America but not In Europe.

Think this poll is based on those nominated and announced by the British Boxing Writers Club and not ESB members as such - hence the noteable absentees!

Paul Appleby for me too (although I voted Ando due to his tough choice of opponents)

Young Appleby has came on leaps and bounds so far, I think somebody mentioned the difference between the Higginson and Nagy fights already, the difference is huge. He was over in the US last year and was sparring with Rey 'Boom Boom' Bautista at Roach's gym and they were all very impressed with the youngster so hopefully we'll see him in with some better opposition in the next year or two

Hi NOrth.

Yes - if you clink on the link posted by PrideOfWales on the first page of this thread it explains more.

From the list of nominees at least Anderson and Matthews were born the same year. Anderson is already 24 and Matthews will be this month - I can only assume this falls into the criteria for the award.
