Haha yeah it definitely did. . Khan poses the biggest threat to guys like Judah, though. Guys like Judah, and Malignaggi who rely heavily on their speed, looked like slow-pokes against Khan. As far as I know, Malignaggi, nor Judah, have never been done like Khan did to them. . . Haha except Tsyzu making Judah do the chicken dance! But even Judah was being competitive in that fight before getting stoned.
Just in general, though, peak or current Judah isn't very similar at all to Khan regarding their styles, and skill-sets. The onyl real similarity I see is their speed. But while Judah seems more fluid, natural, and has better reflexes, Khan just has straight up, blazing fast "base-speed." Khan definitely doesn't have the reflexes and fluidity that a guy with such natural speed normally have.
But Judah still does have some fluid defense at times, and can roll with punches well at times. . . He can still stand strong in the pocket, and pick shots off, use head/body movement to make guys miss, and counterpunch.
Overall, Judah's base-defensive approach is to stay within punching range, and use head/upper-body movement to make opponents miss, and then counterpunch. Whereas Khan is stiff, and only means of defense are putting earmuffs on, or skeeting out of range with his fast feet.
