Khan-Judah: Zab Good With 55-45 if Bout Lands in AC

By Edward Chaykovsky

The continue to negotiate for an agreement to match junior welterweight champions Zab Judah and Amir Khan on July 23. Judah disclosed that Khan's side offered a revised split of 55-45 in the British boxer's favor. On Saturday they were deadlocked with Khan demanding a 60-40 split and Judah standing ground on an even 50-50.

Judah's promoter, Kathy Duva of Main Events, told BoxingScene.com several days ago that a 55-45 was acceptable - but her side was not happy with the fight going to Las Vegas. Duva and Judah want the fight to take in Atlantic City, where the New York fighter has a following. They believe the fight will generate much bigger profits in Atlantic City. Khan's side is not moving away from their demand to stage the fight in Las Vegas.

Based on their discussions, a deal of 55-45 in Khan's favor would be acceptable to Judah if the fight lands in Atlantic City.
