Bradley-Khan Update


By Francisco Salazar

World title holders Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan have spent the last couple of weeks calling each other out. The back and forth jostling between the two top 140-pound fighters has been a broken record of sorts on the media and fight fans who want to see whom will reign supreme in this dream matchup. Now it appears as though both fighters can do away with their sales pitches through the media and on television. Both fighters are signed on to face each other on Saturday, July 23rd at a still to be determined location, promoter Gary Shaw told Fightnews.com.

“It’s done,” said Shaw late Monday night, clarifying a feature article on Amir Khan earlier this week. “There is an agreement between Richard Schaefer and myself that both Amir and Timothy will fight each other on July 23rd.”

The only person stepping in between this matchup is unbeaten Paul McCloskey, who will take on Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England on April 16th.

“Obviously Khan has to win on April 16th for this fight to take place,” said Shaw. “With regards to where the fight will take place, we’re open to Vegas or Los Angeles or anywhere.”

Recently, both Bradley and Khan appeared in different broadcasts of HBO’s “Boxing After Dark.” Bradley appeared on the February 19th telecast in Las Vegas where he called on Khan to make the fight happen.

This past Saturday in Anaheim, CA, Khan appeared and called on Bradley to make the fight happen.

Khan’s last fight was a hard-fought 12 round unanimous decision over hard-hitting and interim world titlist Marcos Maidana in December.

Bradley (27-0 1NC, 11 KO’s) defeated Devon Alexander by a 10 round technical decision in a battle between unbeaten 140 pound fighters in a unification bout six weeks ago at the Silverdome in Pontiac, MI.

Only joking mate, personally I think it's dangerous for Khan to start looking past 1 guy at a time. You never know he may get an 'abdominal injury' and have to pull out of the Mclosky fight.

Yeah fair play to Amir. I'll be backing Bradley and think he's the man for the job. But win or lose Khan comes out better for it. Fair play to Bradley too. He's an animal. He's building a really impressive resume.

Khan needs to be careful with Paul. I think he could give alot more than people think and may trouble him.

 Grin sorry lads I don't know what came over me there...

Seriously though I've said all along I've  no problem with khan as a person I'm sure hes a good guy...it was the padded record, fights against old men n blown up bums that bothered me, along with the mouthing that was never backed up. He's starting to back it up now and is taking dangerous fights against steller opposition and has a result gets my respect..hell knows  if he keeps this up I might become a fan  Grin

Think of the fighter he'd be if he had a great chin! If he could go toe to toe with Bradley he'd be far better.

Khan gets a fair chunk of respect here, his recent run of opposition has been world class,

Malignaggi, Maidana, Mcloskey, Bradley, thats not a bad little run at all. Just hope he sorts his dodgey team out who seriously tarnish his reputation.

Summer is looking very sweet for boxing and british boxing especially

Khan-Bradley
Haye-Klitchko

Within a month of each other, plus potentially other matchups that will appear as time goes on, we may see Ward-Froch at the end of summer?

I've always believed in Khan's words that he's wanted to fight the best apart from the questionable pre-Maidana fight situation. This is another step toward getting boxing back where it should be, let's hope more meaningful fights take place.
