Prescott: Getting Tired of Waiting for Khan-tucky Fried Chicken
Colombian banger Breidis Prescott (23-2, 19 KOs) says now that Amir Khan's team has virtually admitted they are afraid of facing him again, he is extending his offer to fight to any of the other big names in his talent-laden division.
"They're (Khan's people) looking in every corner of Europe for someone to beat up and pretending like all the good opponents are over-pricing themselves. I've offered Amir Khan a chance to redeem himself over and over and I've made it clear I will be reasonable about money and yet he and his team just continue to make excuses. Let's face it. He's Khan-tucky Fried Chicken to fight me.."
For those who don't recall, Prescott laid waste to Khan's undefeated record in 54 seconds in September 2008 at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester.
While he remains hopeful the immense public pressure will help make the high-profile rematch a reality (media and fans have been hammering the young champion about it), Prescott says he's shifting part of his focus to the other stars of the junior welterweight division.
"If Amir is too scared to try and redeem himself, maybe another champion would like to see if they can do a little better than he did against me. I'm in the best shape of my life. They'll all get knocked out as well, but I welcome the challenge."
