You can be as limited as a guy who's never boxed, but if they can land a punch you don't see, then you'll know about it.
Sure, it's boxing, anyone can KO anyone if the right shot lands and Prescott does have some power but if McCloskey and Mitchell (whose own chin could be called into question) can take Prescotts shots then it's hard to argue that Khan was simply unlucky or weight drained. He just came in hands down and tried to exchange with a puncher expecting that he would land the harder or more meaningful shots and it didn't work out that way. Prescotts only real weapon is his power, all you have to do is move him around and get in and out of range and he's totally nullified.
