Junior Witter: Amir Khan vs Paul McCloskey is Ridiculous!

By Mark Vester

Former WBC junior welterweight champion Junior Witter is not happy with Amir Khan finalizing a deal to defend his WBA 140-pound title against Paul McCloskey on April 16 at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England. Witter believed that his camp had reached a deal to face Khan on the April date. Witter, returns to the ring next month when he faces Victor Lupo in Canada, was ready to walk away from that fight in order to start preparing for Khan.

On Saturday Khan reached a deal to face McCloskey after their previuous negotiations had fallen apart. Witter claims they were nervous about his ability to make the division limit of 140-pounds. Witter is moving up to welterweight next month.

“It’s ridiculous. Their excuses were about me making the weight but it boils down to motivation. I haven’t got the motivation to box Joe Bloggs at light welterweight but Amir Khan would be different,” Witter told Bradford Telegraph and Argus.

people need to stop hating on witter so much on here, he would have been a harder fight for khan than mccloskey imo. hatton fans say he's boring but watch his KO of vivian harris!! it was awesome!

The only reason Witter wanted this fight was for the payday! Even when Mocolskey gets beat he will be able to come back again. One defeat means nothing! Plus he will have gotten a decent payday and raised his status!
