It took Amir Khan less than 15 minutes to dispose of Zab Judah in their Junior Welterweight title fight on Saturday. Khan controlled every second of every round on his way to a fifth ound knockout victory.
Judah had no answers for Khan’s superior hand speed and power. He provided little resistance and was completely overmatched and outclassed by Khan.
After being battered and bruised for the much of the fight, a bloodied and discouraged Judah was unable to reach his feet after being dropped by a body shot midway through the fifth round.
In the post fight interview, Judah complained that the shot hit him low. Whether the punch was fair or foul isn’t worth debating. Judah was never in the fight, and the knockout saved him from absorbing anymore unnecessary punishment.
With the victory, Amir Khan established himself as the best 140 lb. fighter in the world and the “King” of the Junior Welterweights. Here are five fights he should consider next.
