Amir Khan and Zab Judah both beat their opponents with speed and quickness. Guess who is faster? Khan throws more combinations with speed than Judah. The reflexes are always better in the younger fighter between two fast fighters of different ages.
Judah has the longer reach 72” to 71” but Khan is taller by about three inches. Punching up robs power. And Judah is not known as a heavy handed fighter. I don’t see enough power from Judah to hurt Khan, certainly Judah is not a bigger hitter than Marcos Maidana.
The fight will be fought mostly from the outside. These two prefer it that way. Khan is absolutely right when he said that sparring with Pacquiao helps him in this fight. Judah is not bringing in anything better in the ring than Manny Pacquiao.
Judah will have to do the chasing, he will be met with jabs and overhand rights, and the occasional body shots. Just like the body shots that Khan put Maidana down with. Khan will be waiting to land the big bombs, Judah will definitely go down in this fight.
I’m seeing a stoppage for Khan around the 10th round, possibly sooner around the 7th round.
Judah is past his prime years at 33 years old, Khan is a spring chicken at 24 years old and at the beginning of his prime years. Judah has been beaten up badly by Miguel Cotto that took out a lot from him, and he has the famous chicken dance in the following video against Kostya Tszyu:
Of course many are thinking that this might be a competitive fight. The hype will always snare those who don’t know much about the sport of boxing. Take a look at all the factors and you will see what I’m talking about. Khan has the advantage in almost every category; age, speed, quality of recent opponents, trainer, height, and power. To me it’s obvious that Khan is too much for the aged Zab Judah.
