Miranda, and his coach Ricky Funez, have been full of praise for the quality of sparring they have been getting from the Scot. Miranda joked "when this skinny white guy walked into the Goosen gym we thought "oh no what have they sent us!" But when we started working, Craig was just so good. He is probably the toughest sparring partner I`ve ever been in the ring with. He never stops!"
Despite his own unbeaten status, McEwan will be taking the Andrews fight seriously. "The guy is the Champion of Canada and the fact that this is on the Hopkins v Jones jnr. bill means that I will be showcased worldwide. I intend to be at my very best for this one."
McEwan`s coach, Freddie Roach, is also pleased with his charge`s progress. Freddy says "Craig has been working over at Goosen`s for a couple of weeks so I`ve not seen much of him but we`re getting good feedback from Edison Miranda`s people. He came into the Wildcard yesterday and looks in good shape so we`ll be ready."
