A 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist, London’s Amir Khan (25-1, 17 KOs) faces the more experienced Zab Judah (41-6, 28 KOs) in a highly anticipated 12-round title unification match. Enormously popular in Britain, the 24-year-old Khan has displayed a willingness to cross the pond to meet formidable opposition, and will be putting his 140-pound title on the line in his third U.S. fight. Under the guidance of legendary trainer Freddie Roach, Khan gained the respect of the boxing community with his 12-round unanimous decision victory over hard-punching Argentinean Marcos Maidana in Dec. 2010, a bout named the “Fight of the Year” by the Boxing Writers Association of America. This April, Khan dispatched challenger Paul McCloskey.
Battle-tested Brooklyn native Zab Judah, who began his illustrious pro career nearly 15 years ago, is a five-time world champion. One of the most recognizable names in the business, the 33-year-old has fought such boxing stalwarts as Micky Ward, Kostya Tszyu, Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather Jr. In Nov. 2010, he handed top undefeated contender Lucas Matthysse his first loss, and more recently stopped South Africa’s Kaizer Mabuza in the seventh round of their March bout. Judah is now trained by legendary Hall of Fame welterweight Pernell Whitaker, one of the most formidable southpaws of his era.
