WBO junior welterweight Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) is only days away from the biggest fight of his pro career, a showdown with Manny Pacquiao, the WBO champion at 147, on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Although Bradley's on the verge of his biggest career fight, he hasn't forgotten about his career rival at 140, Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs).
Last year the two of them exchanged verbal bombs for months. Bradley passed up a lucrative offer to face Khan and instead signed a promotional deal with Top Rank and landed a much bigger fight in Pacquiao.
"Before I die, I'm going to get it on with that dude....I promise you. I don't care if its in the street or wherever, I'm going to get it on with that dude," Bradley said.
Khan returns on July 14th against undefeated WBC champion Danny Garcia (23-0, 14KOs) at the Mandalay Bay. Khan is an overwhelming favorite, but Bradley is giving the Puerto Rican champion a good shot to win.
"He's going to have problems with Danny Garcia. Everyone is sleeping on Danny Garcia. The one thing Danny Garcia has is timing. If he catches Khan, he's going right to Mimi's," Bradley said.
