“It was done. But when Khan signed with Golden Boy, they had other plans for him. They took the fight from us, but sooner or later he’s going to have to come out and dance. He’s a good fighter. I don’t know what he’s afraid of, but he needs to fight. He needs to fight some real stiff competition,” said Bradley.
Last year following Bradley’s win over Lamont Peterson Shaw confirmed that Frank had called him to set a fight up with Khan and Bradley when he said “The fight I’m looking to do is an Amir Khan fight,”
“Right after tonight’s fight, I got a call from the head of the WBO. He told me that Frank Warren called him tonight and said he wanted to make a fight between Bradley and Khan.
“have no problem taking Timothy to England to fight Khan in front of 40,000 screaming Brits. I don’t think that’s a hard fight for Timothy. I’m surprised Warren wants that fight.”
“Khan’s been stretched before and I’m more than happy to have Timothy stretch him again,” Shaw said.
