Prescott is fighting next month I believe, Garcia injured + fighting Judah, Peterson just fought Holt. So that's not possible. From what I heard, they tried to get a good load of names over, because he wanted to fight in the UK - which is completely fair. JMM, Soto, Ortiz didn't want to come to the UK whereas Lopez, Senchencko didn't want to do the catch wait - all reasons that are also fair. I still think this fight should have been Prescott - Khan II but for some reason, it seems like the Khan camp just don't fancy that fight. Even though Prescott would probably be exposed. So they have to take what they can get, but expect to see Khan - Garcia II later this year.
