McCloskey Vows To Win, Prescott Promises KO in Six

Paul McCloskey has promised his supporters victory when he faces Breidis Prescott at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on Saturday night. The pair weighed in at the historic Titanic Dock's Pump House ahead of their WBA light welterweight title eliminator and they were both in confident mood.

McCloskey said: "I guarantee I'll beat Breidis. His win over Khan was three years ago - the Amir Khan I fought is streets ahead of the one that he fought, and I lived with that Amir Khan for six rounds and would have gone on as long as he wanted.

"I'll outbox Breidis - he can try to get into my head about running or spoiling or whatever, but the bottom line is I'm a better boxer and I will beat him with my boxing skill."

Prescott said: "McCloskey needs to be very prepared for it as he is not getting past the sixth round and I don't want him to come and hide as usual, he has to fight - the people have paid to watch a fight and that's what they'll get.

"But he's getting knocked out, no question. I'm excited to be over here and I'm very well prepared for Saturday. He's never been in the ring with anyone as powerful as me, I don't want to fight a "bicycle fight" - hugging and dancing in the ring - I want to fight Paul McCloskey not Lance Armstrong."
