Tim Bradley: If Khan Stops Peterson, He's The Real Deal!

By Pawel Pronishev

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is the only boxer to defeat Lamont Peterson in the ring, by decision, two years ago. On Saturday night in Washington, DC, Peterson challenges Bradley's main rival, WBA/IBF 140-pound champion Amir Khan. Although Peterson has had some good performances since losing to Bradley, Khan is the overwhelming favorite to win. Even Bradley himself is picking Khan to win and gives the British the edge with his faster hands. Bradley picks Khan by decision, but says a knockout win will erase any doubts about Khan's status as an elite fighter.

“His movement and quickness and jab will give him problems,” Bradley told The Desert Sun. “Peterson will come and make it a hell of a fight and he has a chance for an upset, but Khan is polished. Peterson will have a good chance, but I favor Khan because he's quicker and he throws his combinations and he gets in and out. That's what I did when I fought Peterson. I'd be surprised if he stopped Peterson. If he stops him, then he's the real deal. But [Peterson is] tough and this is his second opportunity to fight on the big stage for a world title. And it is in his back yard. He will be motivated to put on a good show and fight hard.”

Bradley and Khan will never happen for two reasons. 1-Tim Bradley doesn’t want the fight and has made that abundantly clear (said it himself). 2-Bob Arum is never in a million years going to risk a fighter he recently just…

[QUOTE=starjammer;11533587]Anyone who thinks Bradley is ducking Khan is crazy. He made a business decision that appears reckless in short-sight, but maybe it will prove best for the long term. Either way, it's not fear that has stopped the fight. It…

[QUOTE=Rome-By-Ko;11537999]Yea and Khan fought Mccloskey,which gave Bradley a plan to also get himself a contract and a easy fight(which is what Khan did)...I think either way you will see Bradley try to fight Khan,Khan has to be reasonable tho...[/QUOTE] 60/40…
