Kevin Mitchell could be in line for a world title shot - if he beats Amir Khan conqueror Breidis Prescott.


Promoter Frank Warren says he has matched the pair in a world title eliminator, although no more details of the fight are available.


Mitchell is currently riding high at super-featherweight with the WBO, and has long targeted a fight for that belt.


The British champion has suffered a number of injuries since winning his title 18 months ago, and has given up his Commonwealth belt.


But he is now fully fit and looking to build on a series of impressive KO victories.


The 25-year-old, who last boxed when he halted Rudy Encarnacion at the MEN Arena in July, has a 29-0 record with 22 stoppages.


Prescott sprang to fame when he handed Khan his first defeat in September of last year, a spectacular first round KO in Manchester.


The Colombian, 26, has boxed twice since, beating Humberto Toledo before losing a split decision to Miguel Vazquez in July and now stands at 21-1 (18).


He is scheduled to fight for the WBO Intercontinental title at light-welterweight in Russia, although is more used to campaigning at lightweight
