Big Fight Preview: Amir Khan vs Zab Judah

Amir Khan vs Zab Judah (IBF & WBA Light-Welterweight Belts)

  • Venue: Mandalay Bay resort and casino, Las Vegas

  • Date: Saturday 23 July

  • Start time: 0300-0400 BST [Sunday, 24 July]

  • Coverage: Live on pay-per-view Primetime TV, commentary on BBC 5 live

  • Weight: 140lbs

  • It's the young pretender vs the veteran.... well not really a pretender as he is now a world champ and quite seasoned. Amir still has a lot to achieve in his career and this fight vs Judah is a good stepping stone.

    Khan is a big favourite with the bookies and Judah has lost 6 fights already in his career. He has however fought a lot of big names including Cotto, Mayweather and Tszyu but he lost to all of them.

    So will the experience of Zab prevail or will the youthful hunger of Amir come through. I think khan will win but you can't rule out an upset. My last prediction about Haye / Klitschko was wrong so let see if I can get this one right. I will go for a first half stoppage for khan.

    Khan has weaknesses including his suspect chin. He lost badly when he fought Prescott and has been put down and been in trouble in a few fights. This will give Judah a chance.

    An intriguing encounter. I look forward to it.
