WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley appeared on the latest edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show. The California native recently signed a promotion contract with Top Rank and will make his debut with company on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez pay-per-view on November 12th in Las Vegas. Bradley will face former champion Joel Casamayor.
Bradley clarified the current situation with facing IBF/WBA champion Amir Khan. He rejected an offer to face Khan in July, but he believes the fight is still going to happen. Even if Khan moves up to 147, as expected in 2012, Bradley is open to facing him at the new weight.
"I'm not ducking Amir Khan. I made a business move. I know exactly what I am doing. I am not ducking Amir Khan at all. Amir can talk all he wants. At 140 or 147 you will see Bradley and Khan get it on. I told my manager Cameron (Dunkin) to put Khan on my list as someone I want to fight. If it makes sense...why not? That is a fight that the general public and boxing fans want to see," Bradley said.
