Prescott Enjoyed Saturday’s

HBO Broadcast of Khan Fight


Hammer-fisted super lightweight contender Breidis “The Khanqueror” Prescott (23-2, 19 KOs) says he enjoyed watching HBO’s broadcast of WBA Light Welterweight Champion Amir Khan’s dominant TD6 over little-known Paul McCloskey at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester last Saturday night.

“They showed me knocking Khan out in the highlights before the fight,” said the proud Colombian.

For those who don’t recall, Prescott delivered Khan (25-1, 17 KOs) a Sleep-o-Gram wrapped in leather and laid waste to his undefeated record in 54 seconds in September 2008 at the very same M.E.N. Arena.

Prescott will face Virginia via Mongolia slugger Bayan Jargal (15-1-3, 10 KOs) this Friday, April 22, in the main event of the ESPN2 “Friday Night Fights” broadcast from the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“I’ll take care of business with Jargal and then wait and see if Khan’s fight with Timothy Bradley materializes. He promised to fight me right after Bradley.”

Prescott says he’s content to wait, with the economy being what it is.

“I understand Amir wants to make a little money before he faces me again and I prove once and for all what I did to him was no accident. But if the Bradley fight doesn’t come together, then let’s get it on next. After a technical decision over mystery meat, scored 60-54 on all cards and ended by a headbutt, you owe your fans an exciting fight, Amir.”
