Khan: Bradley Looked Beatable, Alexander Looked Scared

By Chris LaBate

WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has given his opinion on Saturday's unification between 140-pound champions Devon Alexander and Timothy Bradley. The fight ended in the tenth round after Alexander was unable to see from his right eye and the fight was stopped. Bradley would win a ten round technical decision and unify the WBO/WBC titles.

Khan thought the fight was poor and obviously did not live up to the hype. He thought Alexander fought scared and Bradley looked good, but has flaws. Khan, who returns on April 16 in the UK, would like to fight Bradley on July 30 in the United States. 

"[The] fight was poor last night. I have a lot of respect for both, but compare [that] clash [to the fight between] me [and Marcos] Maidana. Bradley looked strong but beatable, Alexander looked scared and couldn't get going due to nerves. But good luck to them both. Bradley made clear who he wants, but Devon didn't," Khan wrote on his Twitter page.

aKhan is drooling because Bradley is not a big puncher but Bradley is looking for better fighters and bigger paydays.
