Tim Bradley: If No Pacquiao Rematch, Bring on Amir Khan!
By Edward Chaykovsky
WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is still hoping that his rematch with Manny Pacquaio will go through on November 10th. On June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao.
There are now discussions that Bradley will not be Pacquiao's opponent in November, and instead the Filipino boxer will possibly face Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time.
"I don’t think that’s the way it should go. I think the rematch should happen. I think the fight was really close, it could have gone either way. I’m all for it. November 10, let’s do it. November or December, if he wants to do the rematch, why not? All this [controversy] would be taken away. Let’s do the rematch and settle it once and for all," Bradley told his hometown paper, The Desert Sun.
If Pacquiao decides to face Marquez, Bradley is open to facing his career rival, former champion Amir Khan. On July 14th, Khan challenges Danny Garcia for the WBC championship at 140. If Khan defeats Garcia, then he will likely move up to 147-pounds.
"I just want the big fights. If Khan is the big fight and we can make it happen, why not? Let's do it," Pacquiao said.

[QUOTE=hugh grant;12263863]The world world thinks Pac was robbed. So he dominated the fight. Only 2 judges dont think Bradley was dominated. Bradley didnt do enough to steal Pacs belts. His pawing jabs with no power shouldnt even be counted. He…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (110)
