Bradley's Manager: Khan, Maidana Are Realistic Options

By Lem Satterfield

This past Saturday at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, Timothy Bradley unified the WBO and WBC junior welterweight titles with a ten round technical decision over Devon Alexander. Bradley (27-0, 11 KOs) is now on the hunt for a big fight. Bradley's promoter, Gary Shaw, would like to make a fight between Bradley and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Bradley's manager, Cameron Dunkin, doesn't consider Mayweather a "realistic" possibility in the immediate future. Mayweather is presently dealing with two separate criminal assault cases in Las Vegas, and there hasn't been any discussion or a timeline set for a possible comeback. Dunkin says there are two options right in front of them, WBA champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KOs) of England, or Marcos Rene Maidana (29-2, 27 KOs).

Khan's return is scheduled for April 16 in Manchester. Golden Boy Promotions, who handle Khan, would like to match him with Bradley on July 30. The July meeting depends on Khan beating his yet to be finalized April opponent, and walking away from the fight without injury. If Bradley desires an earlier return, Maidana is available.

"There's only a couple of guys who are a reality. That's Amir Khan of course, and the other guy is Maidana. I think that he's got to fight one of the other guys first. Tim wants to stay busy and keep fighting, and right now, who knows what Mayweather wants to do?. We can't depend on that," said Dunkin.

"Quite honestly, you always look for a fight like that's a great fight. Khan and Maidana are fights that we can make right now, and they are legitimate fights that can be made. I know that's what Timmy wants. But Floyd's not active or talking about fighting, so, as of now, I would have to say that that's not realistic."

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]Was thinkin the same about what you said. When has Bradley beat anyone up? He might butt n sloppily maul his way to a technical decision but beat up?[/QUOTE] Are you implying that Maidana wins? Loses but doesn't get beat up? What are you saying exactly?
