Colombian slugger Breidis Prescott (23-2, 19 KOs) received World Boxing Association (WBA) Junior Welterweight Champion Amir Khan's recent press release with a chuckle of his own.

Entitled "Amir Khan Laughs at Prescott: I'd Stop You in Three!" the release details what a laughably easy time Khan thinks he would have in a rematch with his conqueror, Prescott.
For those who don't recall, Prescott humiliated Khan in 54 seconds in September of 2008 at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, leaving him knocked out in a heap in his own corner.
"The ones truly laughing are the boxing public at Amir's attempts to talk his way out of this fight," said Prescott. "He knows I have his number, that's why he's laughing and not signing. A true champion doesn't talk about what he would have done. He gets in the ring and does it.."
Prescott's sentiments are echoed by scores of fans on boxing forums and sites who also wonder why, if Khan would have such an easy time redeeming his name against Prescott, he isn't the one pushing to make the rematch?
"When you lose like he did against me, people will always have their doubts about you. The only way to erase those doubts is to fight me again and try to remove them. Another great British champion of the modern era was Lennox Lewis and he avenged his defeats to Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman by getting in the ring and stopping them both. That's what made him such a great champion... the only thing is: You're not Lennox and you'll never beat me."
