We've got three fights on this weekend's lineup, including a big junior-welterweight clash and a much hyped heavyweight grudge match.
The big one takes place Saturday night on HBO, with junior-welterweights Amir Khan and Zab Judah going at it in Las Vegas. Khan is a considerable favorite, though Judah certainly has the power to threaten an upset. Plenty to choose from in this one, as we've added an over/under to the normal straight winner and method of victory options.
Earlier in the day, British heavyweight talkers Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury meet in a 12 rounder at Wembley Arena. Chisora's British and Commonwealth titles are on the line, with a a much bigger fight against Wladimir Klitschko potentially awaiting the winner. On the undercard is Ashley Theophane's British light-welterweight title defense against Jason Cook, with the latter coming in as a sizable underdog.
