Khan-Bradley Could Have Big Hurdles Over The Money
By Rick Reeno
BoxingScene.com has been advised that a possible fight between junior welterweight champions Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan is going to have some serious hurdles over the money. Team Bradley, and manager Cameron Dunkin, are not happy with Bradley being forced to sit out until July 23, and that date is not set in stone.
I've also been told that Bradley's proposed purse for Khan is "neck and neck" with the guaranteed purse of Devon Alexander, who is facing Lucas Matthysse on June 25. Bradley won a technical decision over Alexander in January. Although Bradley won the fight, Alexander has been able to secure a much quicker return date on HBO.
Between the inactivity and the proposed purse, Bradley is not a happy camper. Unless there are some financials revisions for Bradley, there is going to be trouble with finalizing a deal against Khan.
Khan has a scheduled defense on April 16 against Paul McCloskey at the MEN Arena in Manchester.
