Khan Backs Casamayor: I Hope He Knocks Bradley Out!

By Chris LaBate

IBF/WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has gone from taking shots at Joel Casamayor (38-5-1, 22 KOs), to supporting the boxer on all accounts. After Khan became critical of Casamayor being selected as the opponent for WBO ljunior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (27-0, 11 KOs), who clash as part of the Pacquiao-Marquez undercard on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - the Cuban fighter tore into Khan on BoxingScene.com. Khan issued his response, but probably not the kind of response Casamayor expected.

"Love waking up to banter, but Casamayor threatening me? Come on man, is that what fighters do? I met you at your weigh-in versus [Robert] Guerrero. He even asked me for a fight in England and said he wants to make big money. We had a good laugh, very respectful. My tweets about Bradley's next fight, and were not meant to be disrespectful to Casamayor. He's achieved a lot in this sport and had great fights. It was more anger towards Bradley. Lets hope Casamayor does me a favor and knocks Bradley out since he didn't want to step in the ring with me," Khan said.

Casamayor is a totally shot guy -- this is strictly a BS showcase fight to boost Bradley's confidence and future marketability

Khan has no chin. The best future for him is to beat B+ level boxers.
