Upcoming fight- Amir Khan vs Zab Judah on July 23rd 2011

The fight for the light-welterweight world title will see Britain's Amir Khan facing the US southpaw Zab Judah on July 23 at Las Vegas.

Khan, holding the World Boxing Association version of the division will risk the same against Judah, who owns the International Boxing Federation title. Khan, 25-1 with 17 knockouts will fight for his title with Judah, who is 41-6 with 28 knockouts.

In 2005, Judah became the undisputed welterweight world champion. And last March, he took the vacant IBF light-welterweight title by knocking out South Africa's Kaizer Mabuza, in the seventh round.

Khan on the other hand, in December, edged Argentina's Marcos Maidana in a unanimous decision in Las Vegas bout. It has been voted as the best fifth of 2010 by American boxing writers.

Khan vs Judah will be broadcast live on Primetime pay-per-view, channel 480 on Sky.

    I'll make judah pay for disrespecting the UK fans and media for refusing to do interviews and media work for them. Very childish.
