Khan: ‘Judah is a runner’
Khan, who is currently looking for an opponent after his unification bout with Tim Bradley fell through, claimed he had no intention of fighting the five-time champ because of his style.
‘Judah is a runner like [Paul] McCloskey,’ Khan told Boxing Futures. ‘I don’t want to fight another runner; I want to fight a guy who comes to fight.
‘Why am I going to fight a guy who’s going to run all the way through the fight and not want to get hit? This is boxing, it’s not about running away like McCloskey.’
Khan had his hopes on facing WBC and WBO titleholder Tim Bradley this summer in a division decider that was first tabled last year, but with the American refusing to sign on for the fight Khan has confirmed he is looking for new challengers.
‘I want Bradley but he’s running scared. We offered him his biggest payday yet, $1.4m, but he just isn’t taking it. I just have to move on and fight somebody else.
‘And [Robert] Guerrero and Zab Judah’s names have come up. But for me Guerrero is a better fight than Judah cos Zab is a runner,’ said Khan.
