WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is continuing to fire verbal jabs at his WBO counterpart, Timothy Bradley. Khan is still upset with Bradley turning down a lucrative deal for a planned unification bout. The fight was going to take place this past July, but when Bradley rejected a seven-figure deal he was replaced with then IBF champion Zab Judah.
This past Thursday, Bradley signed a promotional agreement with Top Rank. He debuts for the company on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard on November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The opponent is former champion Joel Casamayor.
"Wow, Tim Bradley vs. Joel Casamayor?? The guy [Casamayor] is 40-years-old and ranked 30th [in the world]. I'm sorry but he ain't no Bernard Hopkins. I dont know how Bradley gets away with fights like this. Maybe because nobody cares about him. I guess the chicken crossed the road to fight Casamayor...payday," blasted Khan.
