The bout will feature the classic boxer/puncher match-up as Colombia’s Prescott (24-2, 19 KOs), is an offensive force with power in both hands and Ireland’s McCloskey (22-1, 12 KOs) is a classic boxer with excellent technique.

Looking ahead, both fighters say they will be looking to use the other as a stepping stone back into the ring with WBA “Super” Champion Amir Khan. Prescott dealt Khan his only loss in 2008 via knockout and McCloskey dropped an abbreviated six-round decision to Khan last April.
