Junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott (24-4, 19KOs) is ready to return after a rough loss to Mike Alvarado in his last ring appearance. After building a solid lead and busting up the face of Alvarado, Prescott seemed to be on the verge of another big upset. In the tenth and final round, Prescott was unable to hold off a late surge from Alvarado, who dropped the Colombian slugger and later finished him off with a follow-up barrage of uppercuts and combinations.
Prescott read an earlier interview with WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan, who the Colombian boxer knocked out in 54-seconds in 2008. Prescott was amused by some of Khan's comments related to the one person he fears in life - "his mum."
"That interview made me laugh. I want to send him a message. How did your mum feel when I knocked you dead? Was it your mum that told you to never fight me again? You can say what you want that I've lost [a few fights]. But you know what - I've fought those guys on their home turf with all of the odds against me and they had a combined record of 101-4 [three of losses on Miguel Vazquez's record]. Two of the [last] three losses I had in the bag and fell short. But I will keep fighting the best and I know that one day I will become champion of the world. You will never be able to say you beat everyone you ever fought. If possible, I would fight any of the guys that beat me tomorrow," Prescott said.
"So you can have all the fame, money and mum you want, but remember my mum has a poster of me standing over you in her house. So do me a favor, go clean your room or make the table for your mum and tell her how you fear me. You're a spoon fed mum's boy punk. Good luck tonight and if you love your mum you will fight me because I can't explain the hurt your mum must have felt after I demolished you in your hometown."
