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.

The thing is, I didn't really see McCloskey or Mitchell make the mistakes Amir does. Yeah, you've pretty much said it, it was just his damn exchanges where he doesn't throw any caution to the wind or have any regard for the other fighters punches when he throws himself. He did that plenty of times in the Molina fight, too, where he was getting caught by some really big counter left and right hooks, but obviously had no effect due to Molina's lack of p.

Not that I'm saying his weight or anything is an excuse, but he was definitely a dead man walking. His face was almost Rios-esque at the weigh-in, but of course, that doesn't account for as much, as the same thing happened in the Garcia fight. Just his damn disregard for his opponents offense sometimes is terrible.

Prescott power fades after a few rounds, unlucky for Khan he could not past a 1 min.
