Light-middleweight McEwan is preparing to fight former world light-middleweight champion Kassim Ouma in Las Vegas on September 17 and is grateful for the generous backing from Stenhouse Motor Engineers’ boss Neil Brownlee. McEwan said: “This deal came about because one of Neil’s employees is the manager of the local Chesser pub football team and he asked me to put his team through a summer training programme. From there, I got to know Neil.”
