Zab Judah’s road to redemption came to a halt last night in the fifth round against Amir Khan.
Britain’s Amir Khan captured the International Boxing Federation’s light welterweight title on Saturday with a dominating fifth-round knockout of Zab Judah.
Khan hit Judah with a hard right hand in the midsection and the US veteran crumpled to the canvas at 2:47 of the fifth round of the 140-pound unification bout at the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino.
“I am beating everyone. Bring on the next challenge,” Khan said.
The 24-year-old Khan already owned the World Boxing Association light welterweight belt, and now adds Judah’s IBF title to his resume.
