Bradley clarifies Khan situation: We can meet at 140lbs or 147

17 Oct

Ibrahim Harb – Birmingham

World titlist at super lightweight, Timothy Bradley, who holds the WBO version of the championship, has indicated that number one in the division Amir Khan is on his “list of people” he wants to take out. Furthermore, he stated that the prospective punch-up could take place at either the 140lb weight limit, or at 147lbs. Bradley boxes Joel Casamayor on November 12 but, after that fight, will talk to manager Cameron Dunkin regarding his options.

“Khan… Maidana, whoever, after this fight [Casamayor], I’ll talk to Cameron Dunkin, [promoter] Bob [Arum] and everybody and see what they what they want to do,” Bradley said whilst on the Leave It In The Ring radio show recently.

“If they have a different plan then we’ll do that,” he added, before commenting on the accusations that he is avoiding a unification showdown with super lightweight rival Khan, the incumbent of the WBA/IBF world titles. “For people who say I’m running or ducking y’all trippin’, y’all don’t even know me. If you know me, I ain’t scared of no man.

“I made this decision not to do that fight based on my career,” said the 28-year-old dubbed Desert Storm. “I hear everything Khan is saying and he’s looking stupid and desperate. He’s disrespecting my manhood. He’s not getting to me at all, he’s wasting his breath and when we do get it on he’ll regret it because it’s going to be personal.”

Khan (26-1-0, 18ko) has been active in his pursuit of the 140lb elite. Following his capture of the WBA crown from Andriy Kotelnik in 2009, he has made five successful championship defences whilst also annexing the IBF title in July, due to his knockout of Zab Judah. Khan has been eager to unify all the titles and has attempted to get WBC belt holder Erik Morales in the ring for December, whilst also calling out Bradley (27-0-0, 11ko).

“I’m not ducking Amir Khan, he’s definitely one on my list,” clarified the Californian. “I’ve already talked to Cameron about it and given my list of people I want to take out… soon. Either at 140 or 147 you will definitely see Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan get it on.

“He can say whatever he wants and if you believe whatever you read you have a case. Sometimes writers put things in perspectives that aren’t right. I know exactly what I’m doing. I don’t need Amir Khan. Amir Khan needs Timothy Bradley.”

    U Khan fanfags need to get a grip. Bradley is top dog at 140 and dat a fact. He do what he do when he do it, he dont dance to a drum beat by a Brit. Casamayor is tune up for bigger thangs than Khan. Khan got knocked out. Bradley undefeated. No leverage. Church
