Former WBA (Super) and IBF light welterweight champion, Amir Khan, desperately wanted to fight Timothy Bradley last year but Bradley turned him down and now Khan has lost his interest in the American pugilist, who currently holds the WBO light welterweight championship belt.
The 28-year-old undefeated American prospect Bradley, who holds a record of winning all of his 29 professional fights (1 no contest), with 12 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, will lock horns with Manny Pacquiao on June 9, 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is the biggest fight for Bradley thus far but Khan thinks he is just in for a payday. Khan stated Bradley will for sure lose to Pacquiao and he doesn’t like fighting leftovers.
“He’s fighting my gym mate, Manny Pacquiao, and who knows, in the future, the fight might happen,” he remarked. “But now, because I offered him the fight, if he gets knocked out by Manny Pacquiao, I don’t think he’ll be worth me fighting because I don’t want leftovers to be honest with you.
“He knows I told him to grow some balls; everyone knows I told him that, and you know what? I don’t think he has any because he just walked off.”
“Let him enjoy this little time before he gets knocked out,” Khan said. “Manny just has to be very careful with that big head of Bradley. He’ll try to rough him up with body shots and looping shots and stuff, but I really think Manny will catch him in between his looping shots and he will spark him.”
Well, everyone out there wants to see a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather junior and to make this dream-fight possible, the Filipino star will have to win Bradley in a impressive manner.
Meanwhile, same goes for the undefeated American legend, Mayweather, as he is also going to take on Miguel Cotto on May 5, 2012 at the same MGM Arena in Las Vegas.
Though Khan reckons Pacquiao will win Bradley by the way of a knockout, let’s see what happens on the fight night.
