WBA champion Amir Khan may well be the favourite to defeat IBF king Zab Judah when the pair clash in a junior-welterweight unification battle at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Saturday night but he will not underestimate the tough task ahead.
Speaking at a public media workout on Wedneday the 24 year-old Briton said: "Everyone thinks I’m the favourite but I can’t go into the fight thinking it will be easy."
"Zab Judah’s very dangerous and it will be a hard fight. I’ll have to be smart, listen to my trainer Freddie Roach and not make any mistakes."
Khan added; "I’ve been sparring with Manny for three years. He has speed, power, great movement and is a southpaw. Sparring him will help me in this fight."
Meanwhile Judah is predicting a tough contest but sees himself winning in sensational style.
"I can’t predict how the fight will end, if I could do that I run over to the bookies and make a couple of million," he explained.
"I do see myself as the winner of the fight. It will be a sensational win."
