McCloskey: I Made Khan Look Amateurish at Times

By Phil D. Jay

Light-welterweight contender Paul ‘Dudey’ McCloskey is focusing his attention on dismantling Breidis Prescott in their WBA eliminator on September 10th in Belfast, before turning his attention toward a world title shot towards the end of 2011.

The 32 year-old is on the back of his first career defeat in 22 bouts, losing in six rounds to the now unified champion Amir Khan and believes if he comes through the Colombian next month, a return against the Bolton fighter is unlikely.

“I am fighting Prescott as it propels me up the world title ladder,” McCloskey told WBN.

“I would love the rematch with Khan but I doubt that he would take the risk again.

“The Khan that faced Prescott was way different than the one I faced. I made him look very amateurish at times and didn't get a chance to finish job.

“I want to be world champion and I don't care who I have to fight to get there. If it's Khan that's all the sweeter but I will fight anyone.”

The former EBU belt holder has had verbal agreement with Argentinian Marcos Maidana in the past and if ‘Chino’ picks up the WBA ‘regular’ title next month, McCloskey could be in line to challenge the hard-punching South American, who took Khan to a close decision last year.

“Maidana's team already confirmed they are interested in a fight,” explained the Irishman.

McCloskey was so badly outlcassed by a sub par Khan that he was scared to throw a punch and everytime he was thinking about throwing one he was getting hit 4 or 5 times. McCloskey is a chump, The biggest mistake that Khan made was giving the dog a bone in the first place, McCLoskey is the type...

98% of the men walking around at 140 lbs probably could beat McCloskey. Not that there are that many mini men at that size outside of the pinnes and vietman but McCloskey is a terrible fighter bad a s amtt no talent no red corpuscles Hatton.

Khan needs to get his ass whooped so he can stop talking about Mayweather. He will be outboxed soon

I pray that Prescott knocks him out, i know its unlikely but it would be great. McCloskey vs Khan was one of the worst title fights I've seen in many years.
