McCloskey: I'll Beat The Boy Who Knocked Khan Out

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

PAUL McCLOSKEY insists Amir Khan will have no choice but to give him a rematch if he beats his nemesis Breidis Prescott.

The Northern Irishman faces Colombian hitman Prescott in an eliminator for Khan’s WBA world light-welterweight title in Belfast on Saturday.

Prescott knocked out Khan in under a minute three years ago – but the Bolton boxer has since rebuilt his career and captured two versions of the world title.

WBA and IBF champ Khan, 24 (below) has yet to name his next opponent after beating American Zab Judah in July.

Mexican Erik Morales is being considered for a fight on December 10 but former European champion McCloskey, 32, would love to be Khan’s next challenger.

He is still bitterly angry about the decision to stop their fight in the sixth round in April.

McCloskey was halted by a cut caused by a clash of heads and said: “Khan is in a corner at the moment.

“He’s looking for a big fight but there aren’t many out there at the moment.

“I think the fight with me could happen and I would love the opportunity to avenge the last fight, because of the way it ended.

“But I will beat the boy who knocked Amir out and then we will see what he has to say.”

McCloskey has also had strong words for Khan’s reaction following their fight.

He said: “I thought he was a nice fella but after our fight he was totally unprofessional and arrogant at the press conference.

“If the fight happens with Khan I will be happy – but it is about the world title, not Amir Khan.”

Name dropping khan as his fight with Prescott gets closer so more people watch it. And wtf is Paul on about, in the post fight conference it was his camp that was being disrespectful acting like the pikeys they are!

I still like McCloskey; the northern irishman is as slick as they come! But he shouldn't be talking about a Khan rematch - while he did make khan miss 95% of his shots, he didn't do **** in return? after…
