Prescott Accepts De La Hoya's Idea For Khan in The UK

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott (24-4, 19 KOs) is ready to pack his bags and travel to the UK for a rematch with former WBA/IBF champion Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs). Khan's promoter Oscar De La Hoya recently told his social network followers that a Prescott rematch would be perfect way for Khan to bounce back from last month's split decision loss to Lamont Peterson.

“One thing about Khan is that he’s willing to fight with anyone. He knows what it takes to one day become a legend. Amir Khan has proven that he can bounce back. I personally like him against Prescott in the UK,” said De La Hoya.

Prescott's manager, Luis DeCubas Jr., told BoxingScene.com that his boxer is ready to go.

"Prescott loves the idea of fighting Khan in the UK. Breidis has always said that he's willing to fight Khan anywhere. It doesn't matter where the fight takes place. If Oscar De La Hoya wants to make that fight, Prescott is on board and ready to fight Khan as soon as possible," DeCubas said.

[QUOTE=4CornersKid;11630317]Don't mind the idea. Have Khan fight Prescott in March/April, while Peterson could fight Alvarado, Rios, or Matthysse. Also, Prescott was only out-boxing Alvarado the first 4 rounds, from rounds 5 till the end, Alvarado cut the distance and was…

As weve seen with Maidana and Peterson, when you put pressure on Khan he gallops backwards until he loses his breath and has to catch it by standing still and taking shots. He has no inside game. We know Prescott…

I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who thinks this is a very bad idea...Prescott is all wrong for Khan imo,and just as bad as a style match up then Peterson..Even worse because he has power,really bad idea…
