Amir Khan and Zab Judah will meet in a junior welterweight trinket unification on July 23 in Las Vegas, and this time around for his United Kingdom TV, Amir Khan has gone straight to the source that saved him in April.
Khan vs Judah will be broadcast for £14.95 on Primetime in the UK, which is the network that picked up Khan vs McCloskey on April 16 after Sky Sports pulled the bout from pay-per-view, then pulled it entirely from their networks. Apparently Sky were never even really in the chase this time, which in a way could help legitimize Primetime, a network that has done some boxing and is looking to become a bigger player.
