Shaw's Attorney: Khan Deal More Than $1.3 For Bradley

By Rick Reeno

Leon Margules, attorney for promoter Gary Shaw, advised that WBC/WBO 140-pound champion Timothy Bradley would stand to make a lot more than $1.3 million dollars for a unification bout with WBA king Amir Khan. Shaw has been trying to finalize a deal with Golden Boy Promotions to match the two champions on July 23.

Khan and his promoter, Golden Boy, are on board with the financial terms, and so is Shaw. Bradley is reportedly unhappy with the money being offered. Pursuant to his agreement with HBO, which is connected to January's fight with Devon Alexander, Bradley stands to make $1.2 million against any opponent that HBO approves. Margules wanted BoxingScene to know that Shaw lowered his percentage of the overall package to allow Bradley to make more money.

"We keep seeing this number of $1.3 million being reported and that's not accurate. He would make a lot more than $1.3 million. We offered Bradley 80% of all total net revenues. It would be a lot more than $1.3 million dollars," Margules told

But, industry rumors continue to intensify that Bradley is holding back, for the moment, in order to allow his existing promotional contract with Shaw to expire. The contract reportedly expires on June 30.

[QUOTE=J Dubb II 330;10520590]There is no risk for Khan, the fact is he has a multi fight deal to make atleast 1.25 mill each fight, He's not going to get a Pac fight, he's not going to get a Mayweather…
