Prescott seeks new opponent!

By Lee Bates

A proposed battle of lightweight KO artists between unbeaten Breidis Prescott of Colombia (21-0, 18 KOs) and Sugar Ray Narh of Ghana (22-1, 19 KOs) scheduled for July 17th at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas has collapsed. Promoters are now looking for another opponent for Prescott, who is best known for knocking out British hero and then-unbeaten Amir Khan in less than one round last September in England. The July 17th bout will air on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” series.
