Tim Bradley on Amir Khan's MMA Move - "He's a Clown!"

By Ryan Burton

In 2011 there were talks for a showdown between the then WBO/WBC super lightweight champion Tim Bradley and Amir Khan who held the the WBA super lightweight title.

Those talks ultimately fizzled out when Bradley turned down what would have been a career high payday for an even greater reward which was a slot on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez III undercard against former champion Joel Casamayor for a guaranteed purse of just over $1 million dollars.

The victory over Casamayor was parlayed into the first of three bouts against Manny Pacquiao with the first fight netting him $5 million dollars.


While Bradley's business decision ended up being a stroke of genius, there definitely isn't any love lost between Bradley and Khan.  and other members of the media caught up with Bradley on Saturday night to get his thoughts on Khan's recent remarks about wanting to fight former UFC champion Conor McGregor in a MMA match.

"Amir Khan is a clown. He's a clown. Conor McGregor, dude. MMA?" said Khan.

When asked to clarify, Bradley simply repeated, "He's just a clown man and y'all know it."
