Amir Khan and Zab Judah Continue Bickering on Twitter

Junior welterweight stars Amir Khan and Zab Judah have taken their war of words to Twitter this afternoon, trading a few comments and in the process, pleading their cases to the public.

As we talked about late last night, Khan and Golden Boy Promotions want a 60-40 deal in Khan's favor, and the fight in Las Vegas. Judah says he won't take less than 50-50 (though Main Events promoter Kathy Duva sounds willing to accept 55-45), and for the fight to be staged in Atlantic City.

Like I said last night, I think there's a middle ground here. 60-40 (or 55-45) to Khan, but put the fight in Atlantic City. That just seems perfectly legit to me. The thing about the money split is that Judah taking 40-45% of this is probably still comparable to, if not more than what he can make in just about any other fight. Khan will be on HBO on July 23, with or without Judah. Zab has only been on HBO one time since 2008 -- his last fight in March was a small-time, Integrated Sports pay-per-view event.

Now if Zab were to fight and beat Khan, he'd be an HBO player again for real, instead of just someone they're willing to showcase in a B-side role, or as in the case last year against Matthysse, basically a short-notice main eventer.

Whatever does happen, you can probably expect a final decision on Khan's July 23 fight this coming week. July 23 isn't that far away, and they'd surely like to have time to promote it, and to have, you know, two fighters prepare for one another.
