Tim Bradley: I'll Beat Amir Khan, Maidana, Erik Morales!

By Mark Vester

WBO/WBC junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is just waiting for the  moment to get his hands on Amir Khan, the champion of the WBA. If the fight doesn't happen in the summer, Bradley doesn't seem to care. He says there are many options out there, at 140 and 147. Khan must first take care of business later tonight at the MEN Arena in Manchester, when he defends his title against undefeated Paul McCloskey.

“I'm No. 1. If they want what I got, they just have to call my number,” Bradley told The Desert Sun. “I ain't chasing anyone. Amir Khan should handle his business. If he doesn't, shame on him. But right now, it's up in the air. It depends on what happens in this fight. If he wants to take the fight [with me] and lose, that's fine. If he wants to take it later, say in the fall or next year, that's fine too. He'll still lose. Maybe this fight is premature. Khan is the priority, but if it doesn't happen now, it's all good.”

Bradley watched last Saturday's junior welterweight war between Marcos Maidana and Erik Morales. He was impressed by both fighters, but he also saw a lot of flaws. Bradley is confident of beating either man.

“That was a great fight. HBO did a hell of a job matching these guys up,” said Bradley, who also fights on the same premium cable network. “When you get two warriors like that, you get a great result like this. Man, what I saw, I was like, ‘OK, wow, OK.' But I have a game plan for both. I'll beat both of them.”

It will be very easy for Bradley to beat Maidana, Khan and Morales. All he has to do is a few of his special move, the Headbutt From Hell, and he will beat any fighter at 140.

[QUOTE=Johnny Chingas;10385538][B] I've rooted for Bradley in every fight I've seen him in. I've been a fan of his, because he goes in there with a take no prisoners approach. Morales will pick him apart and whoop his a ss…
