IBF junior welterweight champion Zab Judah has lashed out at the WBA king, Amir Khan. Judah erupted after reading Khan's recent comments, where the British star called the two-division champion "a runner." Khan said he wasn't interested in facing Judah because he wants an opponent who "comes to fight." When considering the possible choices for his next fight, Khan said he was more interested in a showdown with current WBA/WBO interim-lightweight champion Robert Guerrero of California. An HBO televised date of July 23 is on hold for Khan's next ring appearance.
"Sometimes in life people create images in their minds of people so they can get over their fear of them. I have never been a runner! Check my track record. What a way to wake up with a kid trying to get a replacement fight and calling me a runner, boy you must of bumped your monkey f...... head. When I said he's a step down, I didn't mean I wouldn't fight him. I was saving his ass but he opened his mouth to the wrong one. Little boy, sign up and its on! And remember I did not start this, Amir Khan did, but I will finish this. Fighting is something that I was born to do, so let's do it boy," Judah said.
