Khabib vs. Prescott Possible, Magomed-Bisbal Heads To AC

By Rick Reeno

According to manager Boris Grinberg, the heavyweight battle between Magomed Abdusalamov (16-0, 16KOs) and Victor Bisbal (21-1, 15KOs) is heading to a venue in Atlantic City. The finishing touches are being made on the venue deal. The show takes place on March 8th and ESPN2 will televise the contest as part of their Friday Night Fights series.

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz was looking to make a match between junior welterweights Breidis Prescott (26-4, 20KOs) and Victor Cayo (31-3, 22KOs) - but there could be a problem.

Sources have advised BoxingScene.com that Prescott is now being considered as a potential opponent for WBA/IBO 140-pound champion Khabib Allakhverdiev (18-0, 8KOs), and that would take place as the HBO televised co-feature to Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado II on March 30th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. However, in the end Khabib-Prescott would completely depend on HBO's approval.

Top Rank, who recently signed Khabib, wanted to match him against Karim Mayfield (17-0-1, 10KOs), but some promotional complications on the side of Mayfield are getting in the way.

Abdusalamov is always in exciting fights. Bisbal is no pushover, this won't be easy - Magomed is a strong puncher but his defense isn't very good, and Bisbal is a hard puncher too. One of them will be KOed, that…

Both Magomed and Khabib to add a W to their unbeaten records. Two tough Dagestani fighters.

[QUOTE=Russian Crushin;13012565]Why wouldnt HBO approve this fight?[/QUOTE] That's the 1st thought that came to my mind also.. say what you want about Prescott but he is always entertaining!

[QUOTE=Russian Crushin;13012565]Why wouldnt HBO approve this fight?[/QUOTE] I don't know, its a better fight than Khabib Mayfield. Khabib beats Mayfield and Prescott. But a fight with Prescott would be more entertaining. Hopefully Khabib fights the winner of Rios Alvarado II.

Just as long as he is on the under card for Rios vs Alvarado 2.
