Rival Boxers Offer Their Predictions for Khan-Judah

As told to Peter Owen Nelson

HBO caught up with WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz and former Amir Khan foe Marcos Rene Maidana to hear their takes on Saturday’s junior welterweight championship unification bout between Khan and Zab Judah.

Amir is the younger guy. He’s got youth. But out of mutual respect for both fighters, I’d rather not say what I think the result will be. To be honest, I haven’t been studying tape of either guy. That’s not my focus right now. My focus is on knocking out Floyd Mayweather on September 17.

Both Judah and Khan are fast and skillful, so I guess it'll be a tactical fight. If Khan is able to get through the first five or six rounds when Zab is usually more effective I have Khan winning on points.
