Default If Bradley didn't want to face Khan before...

he sure as hell isn't going to want to face him now. The time to fight Khan was 12-18 months ago. With each fight, Amir just keeps getting better- more fluid, more comfortable, more confident, stonger, and more commanding.

On the 24/7 promo, Floyd mentioned a difference between being talented and gifted. That's the difference between Khan and Bradley. It's a fitting way to describe the difference between Khan and Bradley. Tim's best chance to win that fight was to take it before Khan started really fulfilling his potential. Bradley's work ethic is phenomenal, but so is Amir's- and Amir's the naturally more gifted guy with the better trainer.

It'll be tempting to see if Bradley changes his mind about taking Khan's 50/50 offer if a Pac fight falls through. At this point, I don't think he does. Arum isn't going to risk his newest star that quickly into a fight with a guy he probably wouldn't beat.

**** Bradley. He ruined a great JWW tourny, even if it was unofficial. I hope he never gets that big fight if he continues dodging Khan. He's shown to be a prima donna like Mayweather, we don't need another champ like him holding up big fights. And if he does, I hope it's against Pac (should Floyd continue cherry picking 140lbers) and he gets smashed to smitherenes.

He's just following the Bob Arum recipe of "letting it simmer on low". Let's just hope the soup doesn't burn like Gamboa-Lopez did.

No kidding. If any more stocks get scorched, I'm delivering him a copy of The Saucier's Apprentice in person and stapling it to his ****ing forehead.

If Bradley says no again, then he might as well give up his belts.

Seriously can't see Bradley winning this. He's a come forward fighter. Never fit the slick black fighter mode. Khan is bigger, faster, and stronger. Even his weakness, Bradley doesn't have enough power to even exploit.

Khan is the top guy at 140. He would handle Bradley easily. Size diference alone would negate Bradley's whole attack, HEADBUTTING!

This is a big problem in boxing. Fighters work their way up and promise to take on all threats inorder to win fans and get a huge fight. However once they reach the level where they can cherry pick opponents for 7 figure paydays they lose that urge and do not want to take on any real threatening opponent. They quit being fighters and become businessmen.
