After watching Amir Khan’s Saturday night victory over Paul McCloskey, Breidis “The Khanqueror” Prescott remains hopeful of getting a lucrative rematch with the man he KO’d three years ago.
Khan and Prescott have gone in oppositie directions since their first encounter. Khan has put together a seven fight win streak, winning the WBA junior welterweight title and making himself a staple of HBO broadcasts. Prescott has gone 3-2 and failed to make an positive imperssion in his last fight, a 10 round decision over Harrison Cuello on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights last August.
Prescott will have a chance to improve his standing this Friday (April 22) when he faces Bayan Jargal. The bout will also be featured on ESPN2.
“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 disclosed. “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 [McCloskey], scored 60-54 on all cards and ended by a headbutt, you owe your fans an exciting fight, Amir.”
Last December, Amir Khan informed Beats, Boxing & Mayhem that he was focused on bigger names over a Prescott rematch.
At press time, Amir Khan could not be reached for comment on Prescott’s latest comments.
