Amir Khan: My Money is on McCloskey To Beat Prescott

By Chris LaBate

WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is placing his money on Paul McCloskey (22-1, 12KOs) to defeat Breidis Prescott (24-2, 19KOs) on September 10 at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast. Khan was knocked out by Prescott in 54-seconds in 2008, but the British boxer won a six round technical decision over McCloskey in April of this year.

Khan is predicting a victory for McCloskey. He feels the Irish fighter's ability to box will overcome the power of Prescott. Khan doesn't expect a war. He expects McCloskey to set the pace of the fight with a good jab and then use movement to avoid Prescott's big shots.

"I really think Paul McCloskey is going to be careful in the fight. He's not going to make the mistakes that I made in the fight against Prescott. He's going to come out with his jab and think about it. I've got my money on Paul McCloskey in this fight," Khan told Sky Sports Ringside.

"Since Prescott has beaten me, he's lost two or three fights. I know one fighter who beat him is Kevin Mitchell. I really think McCloskey is very tricky, very awkward, and he'll put his punches together quite well and beat Prescott."
