Breidis Prescott: I'll Move Up, Knock Berto's Ass Out!

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that junior welterweight Breidis Prescott (24-2, 19KOs) is willing to move up in weight to face former WBC welterweight Andre Berto (27-1, 21KOs). Berto is planning to return in the fall. The probable opponent is IBF 147-pound champion Jan Zaveck - if the IBF approves the fight and the two camps reach an agreement. If Berto doesn't secure Zaveck, Prescott wants to fight him.

"I've come to the realization that Amir Kahn will never wants a piece of me again. I'm willing to move up 147 to knock Berto's ass out," Prescott said.

Co-manager Luis DeCubas Jr. believes the fight is possible, since both boxers are promoted by Lou DiBella.

"Both of these guys are with Lou DiBella. It shouldn't be a hard fight to make. Breidis knows that Amir Khan will never fight him again, so he's willing to move up to 147 to fight Berto. I think it would be an exciting fight, and if Prescott lands a big shot on Berto's chin - the fight is over," DeCubas said.

Prescott is the perfect example of a guy having his career made by one fight. He has shown since the Khan fight that he isnt that good..... The Toledo fight was very boring up until Toledo bit him, the Sanchez…

[QUOTE=The MiZ;10631503]berto kills him.[/QUOTE] unless Prescott starts taking whatever Ortiz allegedly was taking. Then Berto will tweet again about how Prescott was not himself.

Someone please say this is Prescott talking now, and how he talks. Glad to know there is another side to him rather than dreaming of Khan daily.

don't bother with prescott. he must be on crack or something. really desperate. berto is not marketable without a strap, so i'm sure they will do their best to get zaveck into the ring and soon. it should be decided…
