In the main event of ESPN's Friday Night Fights from the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT, Breidis Prescott (24-2, 19 KOs) won a near shutout unanimous decision over a game Bayan Jargal (15-2-3, 9 KOs). Prescott worked his jab and landed the better power punches throughout the fight. Jargal had no answer to Prescott's movement and hand speed. All three judges scored the bout for Prescott by scores of 99-91, 99-90, and 100-90. The five bout fight card was promoted by Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing.
 

Undefeated junior middleweight Demetrius "The Hammer" Andrade landed a solid left to the body of his opponent Omar Bell (8-2, 5 KOs) which sent him to the canvas in the middle of round two. Bell, although up on one knee, was unable to answer the ten count of referee Dick Flaherty. Andrade with the knockout improves to (13-0, 9 KOs), while Bell suffers only the second loss of his professional career.
 


Junior middleweight Kevin Rooney (1-0), who is known amongst boxing circles as the publicist for Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing, made his professional debut a successful one as he dropped Philadelphia's Terrell Nelson (0-3) twice in the fight, once in the first round and once in the second round both with left hands. In the end, Rooney scored a four round unanimous decision win over Nelson by scores of 40-34 on all three cards.

Unbeaten heavyweight Joe Hanks knocked down his opponent once in the second round as he controlled the tempo of the bout against Terrell Nelson. Hanks landed hooks and kept Nelson on the defensive as he used his size and reach advantage to out land Nelson at every chance he could get. Hanks had Nelson in trouble several times during the bout. Nelson was unable to continue the fight after four rounds, which gave Hanks the TKO victory.

Burlington, VT's Kevin Cobbs (1-0, 1 KO) scored the first knockout of his professional career in his very first pro fight. Cobbs knocked the previously unbeaten Nicholas Lavin (2-1, 2 KOs) twice in the first round, with the second knockdown being his last of the fight. Referee Steve Smoger after the second knockdown immediately stopped the bout giving Cobbs the first round TKO victory at 1:30.

I fell asleep during that main event last night. I cant believe that Jargal dude went the distance. It looked like he was gonna go early. I'm not even gonna say anything about another kid riding on his dad's last name. On the plus side, Rooney made me think back to when his dad fought Alexis on CBS. I think Tim Ryan said something like, "you gotta wonder if Arguello still has the power" then BOOM! End of the fight.

Andradae said in an recent interview that he'll keep fighting bums until his managment tells him to step up... I hope their not taking notes from Berto's management. @The Roast......We went to bed after round 4,.. the action in the Prescott fight didn't justify missing some much needed sleep..... ESPN has been usually very good lately... I can forgive them for a so-so program. ..................Prescott won but not in a way that will make the world sit up, take notice and demand a rematch with Khan. They outa put him in with Maidana... Well they could,.. If Maidana hadn't gotten spoiled with all the big money fights he can still get fighting much bigger attractions.

Real Talk says:

It's funny how you tried to put the spin on it like Prescott didn't knock Khan smack out! The only one who has to prove himself in a rematch is Khan. Dueces

DaveB says:

There seem to be two schools of thought on beating the man who beat you. Some think that Prescott needs to go on and earn the return bout since Khan has gone on to bigger and better things and Prescott's fights have been just so-so. Others think that Khan needs to come back and amend the loss. Truthfully, I'd like to see Khan come back and amend the loss. If it had of been a championship fight then Khan may have wanted the return bout right away. But since he was a rising prospect, he may have needed to rebuild his confidence before fighting Prescott again but Prescott does need to be dealt with. Now if Prescott were to start getting whacked around by every one, then there would be no need to fight him again and Khan could just step on, but Prescott is still there and it leaves a cloud of doubt over Khan. Sometimes certain fighters have the other fighter's number or just match up badly against them. Could this be the case with Prescott vs. Khan? Khan probably has enough on his mind and shouldn't look past Bradley right now though.

Prescott knockedout a straved-down, over-confident, naived KID! The NOW fully GROWN UP and ever-improving Amir "The Great" Khan would take Prescott to school and return the favor of an early KO win. Prescott is a B- fighter -- in other words, one lucky bum! AK would "murda' da bum!" Prescott knows that, and wants AK for a big pay day. Prescott is gettin' on his prizefighting, not pridefighting. If he were pridefighting, he'd not give AK the time of day. Again, I will say, AK would KHTFO! I'm reminded of Chicago native Kent Green. This bum kayoed GOAT Ali in the amateurs, and kept yakking forever about the GOAT not fighting him again when the GOAT became "The greatest" and started pullin' in dat moola. Kent was apparently hungry for that moola and delusional, because he kept saying for about 35 years that the GOAT "knows what would've happened." [The GOAT would've kayoed dat money-hunting sucka!] A sucka will have some LUCK, than forever that dreamer will try to get a BUCK. Holla!

Real Talk says:

I guess it's like you said b4 then, the greatest knew who to duck. If Khan is so much improved then prove it! Another spin artist. You doing too much trying to take up for your boy Khan because he's down with the Manny and Coach Roach. Pacman avenged his KO loss by KO'ing his man. That's what greats do. Amir seems to be protected to me. Has skills don't get me wrong...speed, power, great jab...but I'm not buying in until he sees Desert Storm. Maidana was getting jumped by Khan and Cortez LOL!!! Well that's what it looked like to me. Khan is improved but he needs to finish his breakfast and take care of that unfinished bizness ya dig. Dueces

Real Spill Dave B, couldn't have put it better. I'd bet on Khan if he boxes smart, but I'd be a little nervous. He's got to prove it and handle that bizness. Dueces

DaveB says:

@Real Talk, Prescott made a real good point. He said Khan may say he doesn't want to fight him because of it not being a big money fight. But Prescott said that argument is no good because he fought "mystery meat" (that's his name for McCloskey) who nobody had ever heard of. I'm buying what Prescott's selling. Let's call it Khan's unfinished business. Not only did he lose he got KTFO.

Radam G says:

The "Great" Khan is going to clean the dome blaster's clock if and when the bout goes down. Prescott is still a bum. If he wants a fight with the Great, let him beat a contender. Amir's origin is from Pakistan. Pakistan is in Asia. Asia is the new IF factor. Just about everything is made in Asia or Asians are coming out and making some serious noise. No offense, but if you are not in the forrest, you won't hear a tree when it is falling there. It's Asian TIME!

Just as much as most people didn't want to see a fight, nor cared, about Kent Green kayoing an amateur GOAT Ali, they don't even notice the bum Prescott. Nobody cared or wanted to see Larry Holmes get revenge against Duane Bobick and Nick Wells for kayoing him in the amateurs. Nobody cared or wanted to see the bum, who beat B-Hop in B-Hop's first bout. Nobody cared or wanted to see the marshmellows who kayoed a young Jack Johnson and "Homicide" Hank Armstrong, etc., etc., the list goes on. Nobody cares or wants to see the lucky suckas, who kayoed a starved-fighting-in-the-wrong-weight PacMan, in a rematch with him. But those suckas want Da Manny for da moola. The arch-bum Prescott is searching for moola. He knows that by AK, out he would get laid, but he'd be seriously PAID. Holla!
