Zab Judah Files Official Protest Over Amir Khan Loss

Zab "Super" Judah has filed a protest with the Nevada Athletic Commission and has also sent letters to both the WBA and the IBF requesting that those organizations order a rematch with Amir Khan. 

According to the protest letter, Judah's requests are predicated upon the inappropriate actions of the referee,  who was clearly not in a position to see the low blow administered by Khan which ended the fight, as well as the referee's reluctance to sanction Khan for repetitious hitting behind the head and holding Judah down throughout the bout.

A copy of the letter that was sent to the WBA, as well as the IBF and the Nevada Athletic Commission outlining the details of Khan's infractions, is attached, along with a link to the video tape illustrating the repeated fouls, is attached.

Bill Halkias, Super Judah Promotions, "We know Zab was behind on the scores cards but there are numerous examples in boxing history where boxers that were behind came back with a knockout. The fact that Zab was behind has no bearing on whether the low blow call was wrong. We still had seven more rounds to fight. Zab still could have won, but that opportunity was wrongfully taken away from him"

"Before making any judgments, I would ask everyone to take a look at the tape,"  Promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events, said.  "The video doesn't lie."

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut;11026057]Taking your point into consideration, it seems Zab just wants another payday. Duva did admit that Zab was " [I]behind on the cards[/I] ", and that many fighters have won a title by late KO after trailing badly..... but Zab…

[QUOTE=GG Magic;11026726]No. You don't make money at the expense of other people, that's called being a *****. Zab has no right trying to make Khan have to face him again after the beat down he got.[/QUOTE] I can understand kings…
