Is Amir Un-Khan-cerned About
Junior welterweight power puncher Breidis Prescott (23-2, 19
KOs) remains hopeful that someone on Amir Khan's team will
finally convince their young champion to do the right thing.
Prescott says that instead of squabbling about purses and
trying to convince unknown fighters to face him for lousy
money in a forgettable fight, Khan should give fans the
world over what they're overwhelmingly asking for - Prescott
vs. Khan II.
"Is he really so unconcerned about his legacy and reputation
that he'll continue this sad campaign to shame unknown
fighters into the ring with him for chump change? Does he
read what the boxing world is saying about what he's doing?"
Khan's latest opponent, Marcos Maidana, recently put out a
press release about claims that potential foes are pricing
themselves out of fighting Khan. "...he always has the money
excuse prepared to be thrown out in case boxing fans and TV
networks pressure him to face big challenges," Maidana said.
"I'm beginning to agree with Maidana on this one," continued
Prescott. "I've been saying I'll be reasonable about money
from the start. None of the other opponents he's been
chasing after will make for a fight half as intriguing and
lucrative as our rematch would be."
For those who don't recall, Prescott gave Khan a
leather-made sleep aid in 54 seconds in September 2008 at
the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester.
"Amir, you still don't have an opponent. Stop these games
and act like a champion. If you're having so much trouble
making fights that no one cares about, call me and you'll
have an easy time making a fight the entire world wants to
