Boxing: Bradley demands showdown with Khan
Monday 31 January 2011
Timothy Bradley is targeting a showdown with Amir Khan after adding the WBC light-welterweight title to his WBO crown with a technical decision victory over Devon Alexander in Detroit on Saturday night.
The much-anticipated unification contest came to a close after a minute of round 10 when the American duo clashed heads – something that continually marred a scrappy contest – and Alexander recoiled in pain before being told by the ringside doctor that he was unfit to continue.
Bradley, unbeaten in 27 fights, feels he has now proved himself to be the best in the world at his weight class, but admits victory over Khan may be the only way to solidify that reputation. "I think I proved I'm a force to be reckoned with," said 27-year-old Bradley. "I think I've got to take out Amir Khan next and then there's no doubt that I'm the best 140lb fighter in the world."
