Prescott Back, Calls For an Immediate Amir Khan Rematch

By Osman Rodriguez

Colombian junior welterweight puncher Breidis Prescott (25-4, 20KOs) is calling for an immediate rematch with British rival Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs). Prescott recovered from last November's TKO loss to Mike Alvarado. He returned to the ring on Friday night in Puerto, Colombia and stopped Joel Cassiani (6-10-1, 3KOs) in three rounds. Prescott knocked Khan out in 54 seconds of the first round in September 2008.

"Securing a rematch with Amir Khan is a new challenge that I want to deal with. I already beat him by knockout and I want to beat him again. This will be a hard fight and right now I'm preparing to be in the best shape. On November 11, I lost the Intercontinental championship by a knockout in the last round against Mike Alvarado - and Khan, on December 10, lost the world title. So this rematch would be good. The winner would move on to a shot at the world championship," Prescott said.

Manuel Prescott, father and trainer, said his son is very hard in the gym.

"Breidis is very disciplined. He starts training at four in the morning. He goes through a routine of physical exercises for 45 minutes, then walking, then jogging and push-ups. By the evening he's sparring, shadow boxing, jumping rope and finished the day with abdominal exercises."

Khan should take it. Keeps him fighting while some things sort themselves out around his weight class. Also gives him a chance to remove the stigma of getting KTFO by a lightly regarded fighter. Unless it's too much of a…

[QUOTE=Mutchie6g;11719454]say what you want but Prescott is a warrior he will fight anyone[/QUOTE] Of course he will, he wants to get paid. He's not in a position where he can do anything else.
