The current WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley has shared his thoughts over Amir Khan and Danny Garcia’s fight, which took place earlier this month on July 14 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Bolton man, known as King Khan, was a heavy favorite against Garcia but the American shocked everyone by knocking him out on the fight night.
Khan, who had planned to move up to the 147 pounds division, desperately wants a rematch now in order to avenge his defeat. However, Bradley feels Garcia will never give Khan a rematch.
The 28-year-old, who holds a perfect record of winning all of his 30 professional fights (1 no contest), with 13 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, stated Khan promised he would win Garcia by a knockout but he failed to do so and got himself knocked out.
While speaking on his inclusion, Bradley revealed that he thinks Garcia will beat Khan in the rematch as well, if it ever takes place.
“Garcia is not going to give him a rematch. There really is no need for a rematch. Especially when you have a guy who said he’s going to get a knockout and then you get knocked out yourself. There really is no need for a rematch. Garcia displayed his power. To be honest with you, I think if they did a rematch it would be the same thing,” Bradley told BoxingScene.com.
Khan wanted Bradley last year but he was turned down. Therefore, Bradley was asked whether if he would like to fight Khan now, on which he replied by saying that Khan is not even on his radar at this point in time.
He added, “At the end of the day, I don’t think anybody is going to care that he lost this fight. They just want to see Bradley-Khan. Because of the animosity that we have towards each other, everybody still wants to see it. I feel the fight might be a couple of fights away. He has some rebuilding to do. Khan right now is not even on my radar. I’m looking for bigger fights.”
