Bradley: Forget Khan, I Want Pacquiao and Mayweather

By Chris LaBate

WBO/WBC junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley has no immediate urge to fight WBA/IBF champion Amir Khan. Bradley, currently involved in a legal dispute with his former promoters Gary Shaw and Thompson Boxing, is waiting on the birth of his next child and then he expects to get in the ring by the end of the year or early 2012, but it won't be against Khan. Bradley wants the big money fights against the biggest names in the sport, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“I'm in a good position now and I want to take full advantage of it,” Bradley told the Desert Sun. “I have other interests I'm trying to get to. Khan is not in that plan. Like I said, I'm looking for the bigger fish, the bigger fights — the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fights. I've paid my dues, I've done more than anyone at 140. I've done exactly what I've wanted to do.

“I know there will be a lot of criticism from everyone. But that won't bother me. I'm going to do what I'm going to do. I'm going to do what's best for my family and my career. Bash me all you want, I'm eating over here. I'm happy and that's pretty much it. I'm not worried about anyone.”
