Default Boxing: McEwan asks for a pop at Golden Boy's 'Golden Child'

Published Date: 27 January 2010
By BRIAN DONALD


EDINBURGH professional middleweight Craig McEwan is so desperate for ring action that he's asked to fight one of his team-mates.

The former Clovenstone boxer, who is now based in Los Angeles, hasn't fought since November and has now pleaded with his Golden Boy management team to match him against unbeaten American prospect Daniel "The Golden Child" Jacobs in March.

Craig's father and former coach Rab McEwan said: "Craig is really champing at the bit to get back into the ring. As a result, he is planning to take up a big step in class by challenging New Yorker Daniel Jacobs, who is unbeaten as a pro and, like Craig, won a clutch of amateur titles. Jacobs is the current WBO NABO champion."

Jacobs would walk all over McEwan.

Never gonna happen, plus Jacobs has been injured so isnt going to go straight into a fight like this.

I've not seen much of McEwan but Jacobs is far from the "sure thing" that he's being touted as.

Not seen McEwan fight but best of luck to him. Hopefully he gets on the next Goldenboy bill they they put on over here...Hay vs Ruiz I guess.

Who has McEwan beaten so far? And is he near fighting for any belt and once again what has it got to do with Barker?

Whos brandon vera? i think you mean "brian vera" , anyways who said world title shots for mcewan? because i didnt. I just think mcewan calling out daniel jacobs is a brave thing to do and shows his intentions for 2010. barker is the same age as mcewan and in the same division so comparisons are inevitable...... who barker fights next will say alot about his intentions and where he really is at for me....

****ing hell my mind is shit at the moment. Anyway McEwan is in America fighting ok guys and Barker is in Britain fighting ok guys. Similar level of opponent and neither are near fighting anyone like Jacobs.
