Power puncher Breidis Prescott says he has mixed emotions about no longer being the only fighter to knock out Amir Khan, according to ringnews24.com. Prescott defeated Khan in one round in 2008. Last Saturday, Danny Garcia crushed Khan in four rounds. “In a way, I enjoyed the notoriety of being the only fighter to ever knock him out,” explained Prescott. “But it was also pretty clear he was never going to face me again.” Prescott says ‘he needs a new claim to fame’ now that he is no longer the only boxer to have taken over Khan. He hopes to face Garcia in the ring but in order to do so he will have to get past a very talented Figueroa in a fight that is not a mere tune-up.
