Khan on Victory: A Case of Sh*t or Bust For Me!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN goes into his world title unification bout with Zab Judah on Saturday admitting: “It really will be a case of s**t or bust for me!”

The WBA world light-welterweight champion meets rugged, experienced IBF belt holder Zab Judah at the Mandalay Bay ­hotel in a fight that holds the key to his future.

Victory will see Khan move a step further towards a mouth-watering clash with five-division world champ Floyd Mayweather Jr next year.

But the Bolton bruiser knows that defeat will see the plan mapped out for him by his Golden Boy promotional team ripped to shreds.

Khan said: “There is so much pressure on me but I can cope with it.

“However, I know it really is a case of s**t or bust.

“If I lose this it will be a case of going back to the drawing board, so I will be making sure that such a thing does not happen.

"I not only have to win but win in good style to keep it all ­going.

“It’s vital that I win and win well to impress the fans.”

Khan has only lost once in his 26 professional fights since winning silver at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

That was against Colombian Breidis Prescott in June 2008 and Khan added: “The last thing I want is a reversal like that.

“But that was a kick up the backside for me and I have never really looked back since that night because I have been more and more focused.”

American Judah, 33, has lost just six times in 47 fights, but Khan, 24, told me: “I think my style works well against him.

“I have the movement and angles and have been working on a game plan that will suit me.

“Maybe I can finish his career. I have the style to do it.

“We know how good he is because he has fought big names, but at the really top level he just falls behind.

“And I can assure you that this will be another one where he falls behind.

“He trash-talks a lot and maybe that’s because it’s in his head that he thinks he can’t win these fights.

“I might say something about him but I won’t be disrespectful to him because that is not my style.

“I am very relaxed for this fight and chilled, as always.

“All the hard work has been done and I am just going to stay cool and do my talking in the ring.”

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