On 6 September 2008, Khan was a huge favourite and was hoping to win a world title by the end of the year. Prescott came out fast in the fight and landed some good shots; a stiff jab that slightly buckled Khan's knees foreshadowed what was to come. Prescott landed a left hook that clipped Khan's temple, and turned his legs into jelly. Instead of holding, Khan tried to punch back, and ate a left hook, right hook combo from Prescott that sent him crashing to the canvas. He managed to get to his feet, but was stumbling about badly. Prescott ended it for good with another left that put Khan down again. This time, he was unable to get up. It was officially over in 54 seconds. The fight was at the Manchester Evening News Arena on Khans Sky Box Office debut.
