Zab Judah: I Can Deal With Whatever Amir Khan Brings

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

ZAB Judah says Amir Khan is set to become a victim of big punches – and bad timing.

WBA world light-welterweight champ Khan meets IBF ace Judah at the Mandalay Bay here on Saturday.

Undisputed welterweight ­champion Judah, 33, said: “Amir Khan is a great fighter but I think that timing right now is the thing.

“If I was promoting him, I would not put him in with a fighter with the calibre of Zab ‘Super’ Judah, no way.

‘‘Down the line, yeah, but right now I’d keep him winning.”

Judah, who has won 41 of his 47 pro fights, is so confident of beating Khan that he has already written him off as a stepping stone to “cleaning up” the light-welterweight division.

He said: “Right now I’m on my appetizer. Once I’m done with him I’ll make my main course decision.

“This is my chance to do what I have prayed for: become the undisputed champion at two weights.

“I did it at 147lbs (welterweight) and now I am gonna do it at 140lbs (light-welterweight) – starting with Amir Khan.”

Judah claims that he has all the guile and experience to become only the second person to beat Khan, 24, since the Olympic silver medallist turned professional.

The five-time world champion said: “Amir is an assassin with plenty of speed and power.

‘‘But whatever he brings to the table, I know I can deal with it because of my experience.

“I have been where he has been and I am ready and focused for this fight, believe me. I am ready for whatever Khan tries to do.”

Judah’s trainer Pernell Whitaker is also super confident his man will not be troubled by the Bolton belter.

He said: “If Zab does what I know he can do he should not have a problem at all with Khan.’’

KHAN v Judah will be broadcast live on Primetime pay-per-view, channel 480 on Sky, for £14.95.
