Khan, Judah meet in a crossroads 140-pound fight



LAS VEGAS (AP) — Amir Khan often spars in camp with Manny Pacquiao, so he’s used to tough fights. Zab Judah plans to give him just that when they meet for real Saturday in a 140-pound unification fight.

Khan and Judah both bring titles into the bout, which pits a veteran who has been in the ring against some big names against a fighter who seems to just be reaching his prime. It figures to be a crossroads fight for both boxers, though Khan is the one with a potentially brighter future.

The British fighter said he took the fight because he only wants to fight the best.

“I think everyone knows I’ve got a big task in front of me. I’ve got Zab Judah,” Khan said.
