    What a ****ing animal.
    I wish modern guys wouldn't care about as much about a loss.

    Amir Khan v Prescott. Was it like his 13th fight?

    This content is protected


    "The Bolton-born boxer, the darling of the nation since he took silver at the Athens Olympics in 2004 as a 17-year-old, was floored by Frenchman Rachid Drilzane in 2006, by the powder-puff punching of Scot Willie Limond in 2007 and by the over-the-hill Michael Gomez in June. In other words, this defeat was an accident waiting to happen."

    UK big, yes. World big at this stage, I don't think so. Was on the cusp for myself.

    I can still remember seeing Prescott on the pads in the changing room before hand and thinking Khans is in big trouble! If I had online betting back then I would’ve chucked a load of money on prescott right there and then.

    Also remember for that fight khan had a new trainer which later came out that he use to train Prescott

    Jack Johnson, Jess Willard, Max Schmeling, and Bonecrusher Smith are a couple that come to mind.

    Here is Bonecrusher Smith being stopped in his debut against James Broad.
