This fight will be a 12 rounds bout for the World Boxing Association Super Lightweight Title and International Boxing Federation Light Welterweight Title. The WBA belt will be defending by Amir Khan while the IBF title crown will be defending by Zab Judah, 2 titles on the line.

Amir Khan (25 wins-1 loss & 0 draws) successfully defended his WBA Title crown for four times since he won the championship belt against Andreas Kotelnik of Ukraine on last July of 2009. Remembering, Khan won that title at Manchester, England via unanimous decision victory. Then Amir Khan also met Marcos Maidana after 16 months, he knocked down Maidana in the very first round and dominated the game round-by-round but Khan was lucky to survived the 10th round after he got caught with a strong right hand of Maidana at 1:54 minute time of the fight, that was the best test for Amir Khan spirit.

Zab won the IBF title on last March after beating Kaizer Mabuza of South Africa via TKO victory in round 7.

Analysis in Amir Khan vs Zab Judah:

Zab Judah is a smaller guy than Khan but he has the power and fast hand. Judah has also the best counter punching style in different angles which could be dangerous to Amir Khan. Judah can take hard punches and can fight toe-to-toe or at distance while the in-and-out style of Amir Khan could be good plus throwing the combinations. Khan also has the power and speed.
