Bradley: ‘I’ve got style to beat Khan’
Bradley will face WBC king Devon Alexander on January 29 to unify their respective divisions with the winner expected to meet Khan in a mega-fight later this year.
The Palm Springs native dismissed suggestions of a genuine dislike of Alexander after their rapturous press conference and told Boxing Futures he was just chomping at the bit to get in the ring with the rival champ.
‘I’m ready to go. At the press conference I was just in business mode, it’s this competitive nature of mine. Devon is in the way of what I’m trying to do,’ said Bradley.
The path Alexander is blocking refers to plans to meet Amir Khan in a division settler before moving up the weight to face the likes of pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao. But Bradley, who reckons he has the right style to beat Khan, also commended the Bolton man for his performance against Marcos Maidana.
‘Khan was outstanding against Maidana, he showed a lot of guts and will in that fight, and fought like a true champion. I told him so after the fight.
‘Khan’s a great fighter but I didn’t see anything to worry me. Styles make fights and I feel like I’ve got a good style to beat him,’ said Bradley.
