Amir Khan v Zab Judah full match 24 July 2011

On 23rd July 2011, Amir 'King Khan' returns to Primetime in a head-to-head fight against Zab 'Super' Judah for the WBA and IBF world light-welterweight unification title. The fight takes place live from Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay and will be screened exclusively on pay-per-view channel Primetime.
Amir Khan is looking to take his career to the next level when he faces Zab Judah in Las Vegas. The Bolton boxer is the reigning WBA light-welterweight champion and has the opportunity to take the IBF title if he can overcome 'Super' Judah.



Khan, 24, has held the WBA belt since 2009 when he defeated Andriy Kotelnik in Manchester with a clinical performance and a unanimous points decision. The Olympic silver medallist has defended the strap four times, most notably in his Fight of the Year war with Marcos Maidana in December.

His opponent tonight first became champion when Khan was still a 13-year-old schoolboy. Judah won the IBF light-welterweight titlee back in 2000 in what was one of four spells as world champion. The New Yorker has been in the ring with the best and his vast experience fighting from light-welter to light-middleweight will surely serve him well against his younger foe.

Judah, who also had a reign as world welterweight champion, is coming into the bout on a five-fight winning streak; the latest of which saw him claim the vacant IBF title from South African Kaizer Mabuza.

Speed and power may be on Khan's side, but Judah has the experience to cause him some problems and if there is any lack of concentration from Khan, Judah will know exactly what to do. With that in mind, we should be in for a great fight!
