Bradley-Peterson II? Arum, Dunkin, Bradley, say why not?

Bradley was later stripped of the WBC belt by that organization based on inactivity.

Now it appears that Peterson against either Khan or Bradley is the next viable option, with Floyd Mayweather Jr. seemingly getting serious about a matchup opposite Manny Pacquiao

Bradley and Peterson have each turned down shots at Khan in the past, leading some to believe they feared Khan.

In February, Peterson passed up a chance to face Khan when talks broke down over money and a rematch clause between Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer and Peterson’s attorney, Jeff Fried, for an April challenge to Khan’s WBA belt.

Peterson, in succession, had been offered $150,000, then, $200,000, and then, $300.000, but the challenger’s camp wanted “north of $350,000” to travel to England to face Khan, according to Schaefer.

When the negotiations fell apart, Khan moved on and defended his crown by technical decision over Paul McCloskey in England.

Bradley was reported to be originally scheduled to face Khan for more than $1 million on July 23, but he opted out and is now involved in a lawsuit with his co-promoters, Gary Shaw and Ken Thompson of Thompson Boxing Promotions.

Bradley was legally advised that he could sign with Top Rank Inc., whose CEO is Bob Arum, and debuted under that banner against Casamayor.alt

Khan wants a rematch with Peterson in his native England, and Peterson has indicated he is willing to face Khan there if the money is right.

But Bradley argued his case for a return bout with Khan during the Q&A below, which is followed by the opinions of others, such as Arum, Khan, Peterson, Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya, Bradley’s manager Cameron Dunkin, Khan’s manager Asif Vali, Peterson’s manager and trainer Barry Hunter and RingTV.com editor Doug Fischer.
