Breidis Prescott Was Willing To Face Khan on May 19th

By Rick Reeno

Leon Margules, co-promoter of junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott (25-4, 20KOs), advised BoxingScene.com that his fighter was willing to step in on short-notice to fight Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs) on May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. 

Khan's opponent, WBA/IBF champion Lamont Peterson, was unable to obtain a license from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Peterson fell out after testing positive for synthetic testosterone in a random drug test administered by VADA [Voluntary Anti-Doping Association]. The May 19th event was officially canceled on Wednesday.

In 2008, Prescott knocked Khan out in 54-seconds. He's been calling out Khan for the last few years, but it's very doubtful HBO would have approved a Khan-Prescott rematch.

"He was willing to fight [Amir Khan] next Saturday. I told [Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker] Eric [Gomez] that Prescott could make 140 [for the fight]. We're going to bring him back next month, and keep him busy and keep him winning," Margules told BoxingScene.com.
