Tim Bradley: Amir Khan Will Be in For a Rough Ass Night!

By Ryan Burton
 
WBO/WBC junior welterweight champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley wasn't too impressed by WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan's most recent performance.  Khan defeated Paul McCloskey via technical decision on Saturday in Manchester, England.  Bradley watched the performance on HBO and told BoxingScene.com, "If he is going to fight like that against me it is going to be easy work for me."
 
Bradley found the fact that the fight was stopped because of a clash of heads particularly amusing.  The ringside doctor stopped the fight in the 6th round after Khan and McCloskey's heads collided.  The collision opened up a gash on McCloskey's head that bled profusely.  Khan had previously appeared on BoxingScene saying that Bradley has a big head and accused him of using his head for a weapon.  The California based Bradley said what happened on Saturday can be attributed to one thing and that is karma.  "He is taking about me headbutting and look at his fight.  It is called karma.  I guess he has a big head too."
 
Khan had also appeared on BoxingScene saying that he was looking to outdo Bradley's previous fight by putting on an impressive performance versus McCloskey.  Bradley's last fight versus Devon Alexander wasn't the aesthetically pleasing fight that it had been hyped to be.  Khan was a critic of the fight himself.  Bradley wanted to point out that while he faced Alexander who was rated #2 or #3 in the world depending on which ratings system you read, Khan faced a guy who wasn't even in the top 10.
 
"He wanted a better performance than mine versus Devon and he couldn't do that even versus a guy who wasn't even in the top 10 or top 15.  I fought a two time champion in Devon Alexander and look who he fought."
 
The American feels that while Khan is a good fighter he doesn't think that Khan will pose any problems when they meet in the ring.  Bradley and Khan are tentatively scheduled to face each other on July 23rd in Las Vegas in a title unification showdown. 

"Khan is a good fighter but he has nothing to hurt me with.  Once he feels my power and sees my speed he will know that he is in for a rough ass night."
 
Bradley said that the fight with Khan isn't 100% set in stone but hopes that the unification fight happens.  Bradley finished our conversation by saying, "I'm coming to get you Khan!  You better be ready!"

It's about the thing that beats in your chest in this matchup. Will khan's stand up when bradley applies that pressure? That's what it boils down to for me.
