Khan Shreds Bradley: I'll Give You 70/30, No UK PPV

By Phil D. Jay

Unified world title holder Amir Khan has blasted Timothy Bradley’s recent offer of a 50/50 split for a potential unification fight in 2012, and told the WBO light welterweight champion to be more realistic in his negotiations if he ever wants to meet him in the ring.

The 24-year-old has turned to social networking site Twitter for what he called his ‘rant’ after Bradley publicly offered the deal if both fighters come through their final fights of 2011. Bradley defends his title against Joel Casamayor on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard on November 12, while Khan faces Lamont Peterson in December.

The two boxers were attempting to make a deal several months ago but their negotiations fell through. After Khan offered a 50/50 split of the money, and a even portion of the UK pay-per-view revenue - Bradley walked away from the table. A furious Khan promised to make him regret that decision in the future.

“It took Bradley six months to find his voice after calling me out and agreeing to a fight with me and now he is asking for a 50/50 split,” stated Khan. “He had his chance for a 50/50 split offer, including the UK income, and I am going to stick to my words - he’s  never gonna get that offer again."

“Bradley denied me the chance to become undisputed champion and I am [going to] make him regret it. He needs me now, I am the bigger draw. I am the cash cow at 140. All he is worth is 70/30 with no UK (pay-per-view) split. I am sure he will be crying himself to sleep.”

I don't know who this Bradley character is? Why is Khan wanting to fight some nobody?

Why didn't Bradley fight Khan when Khan was calling him out? Bradley disappeared...now all of sudden he wants to call him out. I guess Bradley wanted to hold out so Khan could build his popularity and the 50/50 split would…
