This week’s 130th edition of On the Ropes Boxing Radio (brought to you by CWH Promotions) featured an exclusive interview with reigning IBF junior welterweight champion Zab Judah (41-6, 28 KOs) who is scheduled to have a unification bout against WBA champion Amir Khan (25-1, 17 KOs) on July 23. Judah spoke about his upcoming fight, and also discussed a variety of other topics including Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather-Ortiz, Kostya Tszyu’s Hall of Fame induction, Pernell Whitaker, and more! Here is what he had to say:

Regarding his upcoming junior welterweight unification bout against Amir Khan:

“It’s going to be a great match in boxing. I’m prepared well. I’m just excited about the opportunity. Once again I thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for this opportunity, and July 23 we’re going to show the world Zab Judah is still the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.”

On his recent journey back towards the top which culminated in him winning a title last time out against Kaizer Mabuza:

“Oh, like I said, it’s been a dream come true. I’m just keeping the Lord first and letting him dictate my pace. Boxing closed a coffin on Zab Judah, put the nails in, and buried him, but God brought him back to life.”

Regarding the on-line war of words between him and Khan that has been taking place on Twitter:

“Twitter is a great social device. It’s almost like having a huge text message with having everyone’s number without talking to them. You can just text everybody. It’s pretty cool. Like I said, July 23 is going to be a great fight. I’m happy the opportunity presented itself. We weren’t expecting for the Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan fight to fall out, but it did. That’s the good will of the Lord. I’m very happy and very pleased and I’m going to be 100% ready for this opportunity.”…   Read more
