Bradley: After Beating Amir Khan, I Want Manny Pacquiao

By Rick Reeno

WBC/WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (27-0, 11KOs) is looking for the biggest fights possible in 2011. Provided Amir Khan (24-1, 17KOs) defeats Paul McCloskey on April 16 in Manchester, the WBA champion will face Bradley on July 23 - possibly at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Should Bradley defeat Khan, and unifies three major titles at 140-pounds, he would like to move forward with a Manny Pacquiao showdown for the WBO welterweight crown.

"That's it right there. I think that's the way it should go. I need to win that fight and beat Amir Khan. After that, who is else is there to fight at 140-pounds besides, maybe [Juan Manuel] Marquez, or maybe [Marcos] Maidana. But I'm looking for the bigger fish. I want to fight the best fighters in the world. I feel that if I win that third championship, and become undisputed, I think I should go up and fight the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. I would love the opportunity to fight Manny Pacquiao to see what I could do in the ring," Bradley told

Pacquiao has a scheduled fight with former three division champion Shane Mosley on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Despite the heavy underdog label that most experts placed on Mosley's back, Bradley expects the veteran to make it a very hard fight.

"Pacquiao has a tough fight. I don't take nothing away from Shane and I think Shane is going to bring a little bit more to the table than everybody thinks he will," Bradley said.

I truly think that Amir has the tools to beat Bradley, but he lacks the intangibles. I think he will take the early rounds by sticking and moving, and throwing those fast combinations.But the problem will come in rounds 7…
