Breidis Prescott Packs Bags For Amir Khan UK Rematch

By Osman Rodriguez

BoxingScene.com caught up with junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott (25-4, 20KOs), who is currently training for his fight against Francisco "El Gato" Figueroa, taking place on August 18th in Miami, Florida. Prescott has already packed a suitcase, because the boxer is ready and willing to accept a fall rematch with former champion Amir Khan. Prescott has no problem with facing Khan in the UK.

Last Saturday in Las Vegas, Khan suffered his third career defeat when Danny Garcia knocked him out in four rounds. Prescott stopped Khan in 54-seconds of the first round in 2008.

Khan has yet to secure the opportunity to avenge his past defeats, and Prescott tells BoxingScene it's time for the British star to redeem his legacy. After the fight with Figueroa, Prescott will advise his promoter to secure a rematch with Khan - at 140 or 147.

"Now is the right time for us to do battle once again. I am fighting on August 18 and after that I am willing and able to go to the UK to give the fans what they've wanted to see. It doesn't matter if its 140 or 147 - I'm ready. It is time for you to start cleaning the stains on your shirt boy, and I left the first mark. Want to rebuild your legacy? Here is your first step in the right direction. Grow some balls and let's give the UK fans what they all want. Viva UK," Prescott said.
