McCloskey: Zab Judah's Loss Gave Me Confidence

Irish junior welterweight Paul McCloskey (22-1, 12KOs) said he received a boost in confident after watching WBA/IBF champion Amir Khan dominate Zab Judah for five rounds in their July Las Vegas clash. McCloskey suffered his first professional loss against Khan back in April with a six round technical decision at the MEN Arena in Manchester. The fight was stopped after McCloskey suffered a cut from a clash of heads.

“A few people got on to me saying Khan destroyed a world champion in five rounds but couldn’t lay a glove on me. And they are right,” McCloskey told Bourne Local. “Obviously I lost the fight but it was under controversial circumstances after a clash of heads.

“Judah’s display gives you a bit of a confident boost and proves I am at world level. But you don’t just wake up in the morning and get that type of confidence. You have to work hard and train hard. I have ability but you have work hard too.”

McCloskey will get a big shot at redemption on September 10th at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, when he faces the only boxer to defeat Khan, with a 54-seconds knockout - Colombian pro Breidis Prescott (24-2, 19KOs).

"I want to fight for a world title and to be honest I don’t care who it is against. I have the hurdle of Prescott to overcome first so you can understand why I don’t want to get ahead of myself,” McCloskey said.

McCloskey should be embarrassed about his performance against Khan, he lost every round, looked totally out of his depth and ran away. That was his big chance to be a star, to be a champion and he totally blew it. The cuts were a mercy ending for a very dull fight. He really should stop mention...

McCloskey lost on the cards and it wasn't even close. Man was about as aggressive as a sack of turnips in that fight.
