Reece McEwan, one of Scotland’s brightest prospects, will return to action on November 28th on Rise and Conquer to clash with Luke Westwood. The event will take place at The Point, in Sunderland, England. 

The North East England-based promotion looks to return with a bang after not putting together any events due to the global pandemic. The promotion is known for showcasing both top-level professional and amateur fighters from all regions of the UK and Europe. Sunday, November 28th, will be no different.

Rise and Conquer have announced three bouts currently, which are Paul Reed vs. Liam Bennent. Mick Parkin vs. Ashley Pollard, and announced today, Scotland’s Reece McEwan vs. Luke Westwood.

Reece McEwan

Reece McEwan (3-0) has made his professional career look effortless thus far. The twenty-six-year-old from Greenock leaped the professional circuit in 2020 after an accomplished amateur career. Since then has accumulated three straight victories, all by stoppage in the first round.

2020 saw McEwan defeat Malek Ghrib at Evolution of Combat 6, and seven months later followed it up with a victory over an experienced Daniel Missin on the same show. McEwan’s last outing, just two months ago, came with some complications, with multiple opponent changes and pull-outs, but that didn’t faze the Scotsman. McEwan handled business as usual, taking out Jordan Wheater. 

Three consecutive first-round stoppages for McEwan showcase the work behind the scenes.

Luke Westwood

Luke Westwood (2-0), fighting out of Team Fish Tank, also enters his upcoming bout with a 100% finish rate.

Westwood made his professional debut in 2017, a memorable debut at that. It took the Englishman just forty-four seconds in round-one to finish Tom Murry at Almighty Fighting Championship 7. Since then, Westwood has only competed once, which was in 2019 at Bellator Newcastle. Westwood bagged a third-round stoppage over Richard Kallos on the night.

Westwood has proved he’s a dangerous fighter in all departments, with submission wins in the past, knockout wins, and displaying he can go the distance, dating back to his amateur career, but will the recent period of inactivity play a factor?
