Amir Khan believes that he is the best boxer in Britain.

Amir Khan has claimed that he is the best boxer in Britain ahead of his world title unification bout against Zab Judah on Saturday.

The 24-year-old will defend his WBA light-welterweight title while the American puts his IBF title on the line in Las Vegas.

"Pound for pound, I'm way ahead of all the other British fighters, and I think people know that," he told BBC Sport.

"Anybody who knows about boxing will go crazy for this fight," he added. "It's an exciting fight with two big-hitters and Judah's fought some big names and is a five-time world champion."

The Bolton-born fighter has won 25 of his 26 professional bouts and scored an Olympic silver medal at the 2004 Athens Games at the age of 17.
