Amir Khan Praises McCloskey: A Rematch Will Be Huge

By Chris LaBate

WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has praised Saturday's performance by Paul McCloskey (22-1, 12KOs). The Irish boxer won a very close twelve round decision over Breidis Prescott (24-3, 19KOs) in a WBA junior welterweight eliminator. The scores were 114-113, 115-113 and 114-113 for McCloskey.

The Irish boxer had a packed arena of fans cheering him on with every landed punch. He lost a six round technical decision to Khan in April - after the fight was stopped early from a cut on McCloskey which he sustained from an earlier clash of heads. Prescott was Khan's most infamous opponent. He stopped the British boxer in 54-seconds back in 2008.

Now McCloskey is the mandatory challenger to WBA "regular" champion Marcos Maidana. If he defeats Maidana for the title, Khan believes a rematch would be huge.

"Great win for Paul Mccloskey. He stuck in there all the way and turned it around. He deserved the win. Well done, my prediction was right. Mccloskey got great support. Let's hope he goes all the way and wins a world title. A rematch will be huge. He really impressed me tonight," Khan said.

[QUOTE=tlarry]You're talking trash about Khan and now you've lost 3 or 4 in a row to tomato cans. What a clown. You got a lucky shot against Khan. And now you can't handle no-names. That's the last we hear of Prescott.[/QUOTE] so if he has only lost to tomato cans what dose that say for the pe...

Praises him for getting beaten up? McCloskey is a joke,he stands there with his hands down and gets hit in the face whilst landing nothing,i was ashamed too be Irish last night the guy is a joke

Close enough to have went either way, to be honest, the knockdown was more like a judo throw than a punch, im surprised it wasnt a draw. Khan has never wanted any piece of a rematch with Prescott, and this certainly wont help the chances of that happening.

Not sure if Amir is serious. That said, free money if this fight happens. I'll have my life saving son Khan battering McCloskey because he sucks.

Khan just simply talks out of his azz. If he saw the fight he knows who won. I guess all those cheering Irish means a lot of dollars signs for him. He is probably relief that Prescott has another loss
