Amir Khan vs McCloskey Boxing fight dead: The proposed fight between WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) and EBU light welterweight champion Paul McCloskey (22-0, 12 KO’s) isn’t going to be happening, according to McCloskey’s promoter Barry Hearn. Khan and his team weren’t willing to offer McCloskey the kind of money that he felt was acceptable. Perhaps it’s for the best.
Khan needs to face someone better known, with better power and with the name that boxing fans have heard of world wide. Khan needs to face someone like Breidis Prescott, Michael Katsidis or Lucas Matthysee so that boxing fans will at least have heard of these guys.
Khan likely won’t face Prescott, because Khan was flopping around like a big fish when he fought him in 2008. Prescott dominated Khan like he was a schoolboy. I can’t see anything changing in a rematch, especially in watching Khan stagger around taking punishment in his last fight against Marcos Maidana last December. That was embarrassing. Khan looked like a drunk trying to grab a hold of light post to steady himself so that he would fall down in the gutter.
