Britain’s Amir Khan knocked out Zab Judah in five rounds in their light-welterweight fight in Las Vegas last night.
The 24-year-old Khan, defending his WBA belt, was expected to be stretched by veteran IBF champion Judah.
But Khan dominated from the opening bell, forcing the fight and landing at will with his jab.
The end came when Khan landed with a right hand to the body and Judah was unable to make the count.
The punch looked borderline low, but replays showed it landed on Judah’s belt line and was not a foul blow.
“He went down and it was above the belt,” Khan, who will now target the winner of September’s clash between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz, told BBC Radio 5 live.
“It was nowhere near below the belt, it was a great shot. Zab’s a great fighter. I respect him a lot.”
Judah did not agree with his rival’s assessment, claiming: “Everyone in world who saw the fight will see that’s a low blow. I thought he [the referee] was giving me time to get up.
If you don’t know about King Khan. You can now!
