Bradley vs Khan Deadline Extended, But Not Looking Good

By Rick Reeno

A source close to the negotiations has advised BoxingScene.com that a few extra days were extended in order to finalize a deal between WBO/WBC junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and his WBA rival Amir Khan. Golden Boy Promotions, on behalf of Khan, and Gary Shaw, who promotes Bradley, are trying to reach an agreement to match the two champions on an HBO televised date of July 23.

Bradley, who is guaranteed at least $1.2 million for his next HBO appearance, is not happy with the offer of $1.3 million for a unification with Khan. Golden Boy set a Monday deadline for Bradley's side to accept the offer, but I've heard HBO became involved and were able to get a few more days on the table to get the deal done. The deadline, reportedly, is now Wednesday.

But, a source with knowledge of the negotiations told BoxingScene that "it's not looking good" when questioned about the possibility of a deal being reached.

Golden Boy is already looking at alternative options, with fighters like Erik Morales and Robert Guerrero becoming possibilities.

[QUOTE=Fetta;10469330]allow to fester. with Khan, Bradley, Morales, Maidana, Guerrero, Mattsy, Judah, Marquez (if he wants), and Alexander. Why rush it. Good fights with loads of talent to be made[/QUOTE] No, then more names will come along. This is it right…
