Breidis Prescott: I Won't Kick Amir Khan While He's Down

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Junior welterweight Breidis Prescott, the first man to defeat Amir Khan in 2008 by knockout in 54 seconnds, was impressed by the British fighter's performance on Saturday night. Khan lost a split decision, and his WBA/IBF title, to Lamont Peterson in Washington, DC.

BoxingScene.com: How did you see the Khan vs. Peterson fight?

I thought it was a very close fight. Peterson landed the cleaner punches but Khan I thought won more rounds. But I've been on the bad end of decisions, you got to move forward. It was fun to watch.

BoxingScene.com: You lost a devastating fight that you were winning against Mike Alvarado. Now Khan loses, where do you both go from here?

I would love to fight Alvarado in a rematch and I bet Amir would love to fight Peterson so let's do a doubleheader and winners fight each other. Both great fights and fans would have a blast.

BoxingScene.com: Where you surprised that Khan took the punches so well?

No. He has taking everyone's punches pretty good. Maidana hurt him and so did Peterson. but never had him off his feet. People don't give me credit but after watching the punches he took from those guys its my punching power that he doesn't react well too.

BoxingScene.com: It would be a great doubleheader. Closing thoughts?

It was a good night for boxing. Amir proved he is a warrior. The Mum jokes were just jokes. I'm not going to kick him while he's down. The reason I've always wanted to fight him again was to prove to him and his people that the KO wasn't a fluke. But hey I wish him the best and I hope we fight some day.

I will come back stronger than ever and keep making throwback fights. I fight for the fans across the world. I love fighting in Europe, they are great fans. I promised Colombia a world title and I won't stop until I do it. Thank you Gatos.
