Bradley Pondered Smacking Khan's Face in Confrontation

By Osman Rodriguez

Undefeated Timothy Bradley appeared on WLIE radio in New York and discussed last year's confrontation with Amir Khan. The two fighters engaged in a well documented war of words in 2011. Bradley passed on a deal to face Khan last summer. Instead he signed with Top Rank and now he's scheduled to challenge WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Last November, following Bradley's weigh-in for the fight with Joel Casamayor on the Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - there was a brief confrontation with Khan.

"Amir is blowing all out of proportion. Amir is blowing it all out of whack. Amir is trying to make himself look like he's a big man. After my weigh-in, it was at the Pacquiao-Marquez fight. After the weigh-in, I got off the stage and I saw Amir standing right there. I looked at him and I gave him a dirty look. And then he said something under his breath. I barely heard [him]. I said 'did he just say what I thought he said?' [He said] 'you need to grow some balls' under his breath," Bradley said.

"It wasn't like he was flat out [screaming] 'you need to grow some balls Bradley and come out and fight me.' It wasn't like he was trying to be a man and trying to step to me. He was being more like a little kid saying 'grow some balls' underneath his breath. And I'm like 'do I slap this guy right now and make a fool of myself or do I just walk away and be a good sport. Just be a good sport and not embarrass all of my people here and embarrass Top Rank. I'm not here for Amir Khan right now.' And I told him that 'every dog has his day and you will have your shot.' That’s what I told him. When that day does happen, I'm just letting everybody know that I'm taking that guy out."
