Timothy Bradley Sued by Gary Shaw and Thompson Boxing

Undefeated junior welterweight Timothy Bradley and manager Cameron Dunkin have been sued by promoters Gary Shaw and Ken Thompson, according to ESPN's Dan Rafael, due to his refusal to fight Amir Khan on July 23. Bradley's bailing on the fight, which was expected if the two won their January and April fights, made way for Saturday night's Khan vs Judah bout on HBO.

Shaw and Thompson are also seeking an injunction which would disallow his signing with another promoter. Bradley was expected to entertain offers after his contract ended in June, but has been quiet.

Shaw and Thompson are seeking damages on income they say they would have earned on a Bradley-Khan fight. They estimate their 20 percent share of the profits -- the other 80 percent would have gone to Bradley -- would have been "in excess of $450,000."

... "Obviously, I hope Timmy will come back to Thompson and I and resume his career in a positive way, the way it was going," Shaw told ESPN.com

This probably makes it just a slight bit unlikely that Bradley winds up coming back to Shaw and Thompson. Nonito Donaire is back in at Top Rank after a serious dispute this year, but they didn't sue him, they just enforced an existing contract.

In short, don't expect to see Tim Bradley back in the ring any time soon with this move, unless he decides to re-up with the guys suing him.
