Khan hoping to anger Bradley by fighting Morales
Amir Khan is hoping to convince Erik Morales that he is a more lucrative fight than Timothy Bradley, as the WBA and IBF champion looks to secure his next opponent.
Khan, who defeated Zab Judah to unify light-welterweight titles on his last appearance in July, has long hoped to face Bradley - the other consensus thoroughbred boxer in the weight class. But Bradley has so far been reluctant to enter negotiations with the Bolton-born fighter - eventually seeing his WBC crown stripped from him as a result of his inactivity - and Khan has now turned his attention to the experienced Morales.

Amir KHAN has ruled out the possibility of a rematch with Marcos Maidana, instead favouring Erik Morales as his final opponent at light-welterweight.
Argentinian puncher Maidana has attempted to goad Khan into accepting a repeat of their thriller last December by claiming the 24-year-old "begged the WBA in writing" to avoid him. The first encounter was a classic with Khan prevailing on points. But the WBA and IBF champion, who has December 10 pencilled in for his next appearance, sees no value in facing Maidana for a second time.
"Maidana's been saying I'm avoiding him, but he was my mandatory a year ago and I beat him fair and square," he said. "Now he wants a rematch but I've got bigger fish to fry."
