WBA 140-pound champion Amir Khan spoke to Click Liverpool, and says there is no fear of facing WBO/WBC champion Timothy Bradley on July 23. In a recent piece on BoxingScene.com, Bradley told Khan to "stop running" from the fight.
“You will see me in the ring on July 23. Hopefully I can get Khan in the ring with me. So Khan stop running, it’s time to get it on baby. Just stop running,” Bradley said.
Khan returns on April 16 against Paul McCloskey at the MEN Arena in Manchester. Should he beat McCloskey, Khan is very open to facing Bradley on the July date.
“I was shocked that he said I was running from him,” said Khan. “I had a fight with Maidana and I knew he was fighting Alexander. I never said once that I wouldn’t fight him. I was the one pushing this fight against Bradley, so how can he say that I’m scared of him? I want this fight to happen in the summer so he’d better be ready. The only thing I have to worry about in that fight is his head.”
