Id rather see him in with Malignaggi. I think Judah might be too much of a risk. Also he would probably get more credit from casual fans as most wont really know who Judah is.

In the last five years he has had five fights against 'relevant' opposition.

He has gone 1 (1) - 4 (1) - 0.

It would have been three stoppage losses, but for the shocking low blow against Mayweather which bought him enough time to hear the final bell, and the blatant gamble of a quit job against Clottey.

He has had one fight a few weeks ago, coming off a year long absense.

There are too many holes to pick in this fight for me to make it worthwhile for Amir.

Judah would be a GREAT name for Amir at this stage in his career.

Considering Zab has only lost to Tszyu at 140 it would still be a fantastic win for a 23yr old who moved up from lightweight 2 fights ago. Despite the recent results for Judah real boxing fans will know what kind of risk this brings to Khan and his dodgy whiskers.

All of Judahs recent losses have come against legit WW and if this fight were to coe off and Khan was to win he should get massive credit

it is a terrible fight. he doesn't need judah. i think he wants an american name.

If the next fight aint against any of the current batch of names being bandied about I'll be severely disappointed. These names include Maidana, Mallinagi, Diaz, Judah, Alexander, Hatton.

Judah is on the way out, but his power makes him a no-no for Khan.

He's still fast enough to land big, and if he does it's back to the drawing board for Khan.

Having said that, would be a great name for Khan, and would be acceptable if it preceded a sharp rise in level of opponent for Khan.

Judah's last two fights were still officially welterweight. His last fight was 145. Hardly a light welter fight. Judah's not done nothing at 140 for ages. It's not a good fight.

Yeah this is more like it, although I cant see Frank letting that happen, far too dangerous at this stage

Judah is a bad choice i feel, i think he would have a lot of experience and maybe have a little too much class at this stage for khan!!

It'd be a good name, but a risky one for his American debut, Judah can punch, has quick hands, athletic ability and can pick his punches well..

I think hes the sort of fighter that would cause Amir loads of trouble, just quickly picking his punches with snappy power and then moving out of range, and making Khan commit himself...

Khan needs more experience for a vet like Judah i feel. And needs to work on his strength and style...

If he's to fight on a US under card then I actually hope it's not Pac-Mayweather. If Pavlik-Williams is to happen for instance then that would be a good one. No way Sky are going to show it otherwise! I want it to be a part of a card that we otherwise wouldn't see. Would also make sense from the viewpoint of the American promoters - they'd get a reasonable (not too big) cut of the UK ppv profits in order to showcase Khan. The alternative is that they make nothing from UK television at all. Pac-Floyd on the other hand doesn't need Khan in order to induce ppv buys over here.
