Amir Khan lines up unification bout with Judah

Amir Khan says he will defend his WBA light welterweight title

in a unification bout with Zab Judah.

The British fighter says on Twitter he will face the American

IBF champion on July 23 at the Mandalay Bay hotel casino in Las


Khan says: ”July 23rd, WBA/IBF unification fight. KHAN vs

JUDAH. Mandalay bay.”

Khan retained his WBA title when his fight with Paul McCloskey

was stopped after six rounds in Manchester on April 16.

Judah, the former undisputed welterweight champion, reclaimed

the IBF title when he knocked out Kaizer Mabuza in March in Newark,
