Photos/Quotes/Weights: Paul McCloskey, Breidis Prescott

Paul McCloskey has guaranteed his loyal fans victory when he faces Breidis Prescott at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on Saturday night.

McCloskey and Prescott clash in a WBA Light Welterweight title eliminator live on Sky Sports and also streamed live on ESPN3.com. The pair weighed in at the historic Titanic Dock’s Pump House in Northern Ireland’s capital, and they were both in confident mood ahead of tomorrow night’s showdown.

“I guarantee I’ll beat Breidis,” said McCloskey. “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 countered: “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.”

Chief support is provided by Carl Frampton and Mark Quon’s clash for the vacant Commonwealth Super Bantamweight title, with Eamonn O’Kane, Marc McCullough, Liam Hutchinson, Luke Wilton and Dee Taggart also in action.

McCloskey looks a little fleshy...he could operate at 135...but still see him winning on points. For some reason, although I like Paul, and his style of boxing, I want Briedis to KO him!!
