Amir Khan: I Said Yes, So Timothy Bradley Said No

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

WBA/IBF 140-pound champion Amir Khan is moving past a possible fight with Timothy Bradley, who still holds the WBO's version of the title. Their negotiations broke down a few months ago, and Khan later reached a deal to fight Zab Judah. Last Saturday, Khan stopped Judah in five to unify the WBA and IBF titles. He tried to pursue Bradley for a year-end unification, but Bradley is facing a lawsuit from his former promoters and he's likely going to sit out until 2012.

Khan is surprised that Bradley didn't accept his earlier offer, since it was Bradley who challenged him. The British boxer believes Bradley is trying to land a fight with either Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr., and a loss would rule him out with both boxers.

"I think Tim Bradley is scared. If he is the champion he says he is then he would have fought me by now. He was the one who called me out but since I said. 'Yes I'm ready to fight' - he didn't want to fight me," Khan said.

"I don't think he wants to fight me. He's chasing a payday against Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. And if he loses to me, then he won't be able to get those fights."
