I'm surprised at this, all roads looked to be heading towards a Bradley V Khan showdown, if he is indeed moving up to fight Pacman then it points to a Mayweather v Khan match-up IMO.

Which means no Floyd V Pac ...

I don't blame him that much but he is a cowards to an extent.

It's not likes he's fighting Pacquiao instead of Khan, he's avoiding Khan in a hope of a Pacquiao fight just incase his record gets tarnished.

If he wasn't a coward he would atleast try a nuify the division, right now Khan would be a huge scalp and would cement his place of been the best out there (apart from Mayweather of course) to fight Pacquiao.

what does khan bring to the table that makes bradley so scared, khan is limited he cant fight backing up, his power isn6 as good as say some1 like kendell holt, hes not that elusive, bradley will pile the pressure on khan and khan will unravel worse then he did against maidana, khans footwork sucks. all he has is a 2 fisted piston like attack theres nothing else in his game, bradley is an all round fighter khan is just too 1 dimensional

"Coward" is a very strong word to call a pro boxer.

Bradley will earn more fighting Pacquiao than the rest of his career combined, he would be mad not to take it.

Pacquiao's options are limited and we know Arum likes to throw his own fighters in together so he makes 100% on the promotion and is guaranteed the winner, going to Top Rank practically guarantees him a shot next.

Yep the video GP done Kings and Pawns one he recently made kinda emphasized that point in middle of the video.

I'd love to see Bradley back in ring soon but he's got a good team around him and he knows where he wants career to go. I remember similar was said when the Alexander fight didn't come off the first time and the fight happens around 6-7 months down line and he won pretty easily IMO as well as being ill in run up to fight.

I don't like all this business stuff in boxing but it's there life/career it's up to them how they wanna run with it.

Calling out Khan live on HBO wasn't smart if you then turn down a career high purse to fight him, Baby

Like it or lump it, its a massive part of pro boxing esp. at the top end. Its better to just wait and see how it all pans out before condemning a boxer IMHO.
