WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is pushing Golden Boy Promotions to close a unification deal to fight WBC/WBO champion Timothy Bradley on July 23rd in the United States. The fight will either take place in Las Vegas or California. Khan last fought on April 16, winning a technical decision over Paul McCloskey. Bradley fought in January, winning a technical decision over Devon Alexander. Both fighters had their bouts cut short due to accidental head clashes.
Khan says he already agreed on the fight and says Bradley is holding up the show.
"On July 23rd I want to fight Tim Bradley. I have agreed on the fight and told Golden Boy to sign. Now HBO and us are waiting on Bradley and his team. The fight is more likely to be in America," Khan said.
