Briton hoping to lure new welterweight champion
Amir Khan has called out Timothy Bradley in the wake of the American's victory over Manny Pacquiao.
Khan, a Wild Card gym stablemate of Pacquiao, had hoped to unify the light-welterweight division when he and Bradley had the belts between them.
Bradley opted to take a different route that ended with him winning Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title on Saturday night, albeit on a controversial points decision.
And Khan, commentating at ringside in Las Vegas, is still chasing Bradley and wants to avenge the defeat of his good friend.
"What a joke we had manny winning by 5 rounds. Bradley how about you take the fight with me in December after I clean up the 140lbs weight" he wrote on Twitter.
Khan will fight WBC light-welterweight champion Danny Garcia next month but has always planned to move up to 147lbs at some stage.
"If Bradley wants it I'm ready, he turned me down twice. After I beat Garcia I will offer Bradley the fight for the 3rd time," he tweeted.
