Prescott Falls Over Laughing at Amir Khan Chin Hype

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott disagrees with a recent statement that appeared on BoxingScene.com. According to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, WBA/IBF 140-pound champion Amir Khan might possibly possess the "best chin in boxing." In 2008, Prescott knocked Khan out in 54-seconds of the first round.

"He has the heart of a lion, and in the Maidana fight, he showed that he might have the best chin in the sport of boxing. He really is an all-round athlete and a first-class human being," Schaefer said.

Prescott is not impressed with Khan's ability to take a punch.

"When I read that, I spit out my water and fell out of my chair from laughing. That was one of the funniest statements that I've ever read. Khan's chin is made out of paper. He fought one puncher in the last three years and [Marcos] Maidana almost knocked him out with the first solid punch [in round ten]. He was lucky Maidana was tired and couldn't finish him off. He says nobody wants to fight him at 140-pounds. I'm right here. Maidana is here, Mike Alvarado, Jesse Vargas, Lucas Matthysse. He won't fight any of us. He will run to 147 to fight a punching bag like Matthew Hatton with feathers in his fists," Prescott said.

Alvarado-Prescott will be a good fight. Prescott is right about the fact that there are still people at 140, and new names will be moving up as well, but I don't blame Khan for moving up to 147. Khan looks like a natural WW, and I think he'll carry the weight well. Prescott is right about the ...

Nothing he said wasn't true.

[QUOTE=eddie_monster]This bum shouldn't be laughing, he just lost to McCloskey!!![/QUOTE] That fight wasn't even near being close, it was a fairly comfortable win for Prescott in my book.

[QUOTE=TOBYLEE1]If I'm a hater you are a fan boy. Khan has been rocked before by lesser punchers. And I know you are going to blame it on him fighting at a lower weight[/QUOTE] And yet he hasn't touched the canvas in 3 years in spite of eating flush shots from two of the biggest hitters at 1...

[QUOTE=BoZz]and khan is obsessed with mayweather....they all want to fight the fights where the best paycheck is presented.[/QUOTE] Dis true. I'm split, on one hand Khan should fight BP to get rid of haters, on the other he has far bigger things to be doing at JW and WW. I can respect either d...
