Shaw wants 140lb Tournament

By Karl Freitag

“I was up at HBO this week unbeknownst to anybody,” revealed promoter Gary Shaw today. “I offered to do a 140lb tournament with Timothy Bradley, Devon Alexander, Amir Khan, and if Marquez beats Diaz, he could be in the tournament, as well. I suggested that we have a press conference and we pull pills out of a bottle. If we pull Devon Alexander, we fight Devon Alexander. If we pull Amir Khan, we fight Amir Khan, or Marquez, or any other 140-pounder they want to put in there. Golden Boy said no.”

Shaw continued, “Of course, Amir Khan doesn’t want to fight Timothy Bradley. Timothy Bradley will fight anybody and to Devon Alexander’s credit, he’ll fight anybody. It’s the other two that won’t fight.”
