Warren contacts Shaw over Khan vs Bradley unification


Timothy Bradley retained his WBO world title last against tough-guy Lamont Peterson last night with scores of 120-107, 119-108 and 118-110.

Peterson (27-1) may have lost a landslide on points, the but the former homeless man put in a performance that made Bradley fight harder than at any time before in his career.

"He came out and made me fight like no one ever has," Bradley said.

"I think experience played a real big role. He had the right game plan, but he got a little careless, and he was rushing in there instead of following his jab. When he came in is when I nailed him."

It emerged that Frank Warren has contacted Bradley's manager about a proposed fight with Amir Khan next year in the United Kingdom. The call surprised Gary Shaw.

"I would have no problem going over to England to fight in front of 40,000 screaming Brits," Shaw said. "Amir Khan has been down once for the count.

I don't think this is a hard fight for Timothy Bradley.

I'm surprised that Frank Warren wants it, but we would do it" concluded Shaw.

"I will fight whoever they want me to fight, and I don't care where I have to go," Bradley said.
