Katsidis Arrives in England, Hungry To Fight Burns

After another gruelling camp in Thailand Michael Katsidis “The Great” and his team have now touched down in England ahead of his November 5th World Title fight against Scot Ricky Burns.

Team Katsidis were particularly happy with the last training camp as, unlike the last few, it has been incident free.

“Michael had a few tough camps, as everyone knows, before world title fights with Marquez and Guererro,” trainer/manager Brendon Smith said “It has been great to prepare with nothing else on our minds other than winning a third world title belt”

Katsidis is no stranger to the shores of England, being dubbed the “Brit Basher” after taking down two of the countries top prospects in devastating fashion. Katsidis stopped Graham Earl in 2007 to claim his first WBO world title belt, only to return three years later to punish the undefeated Kevin Mitchell in three rounds.

With all the success he has had in the UK. Katsidis isn't entering this fight thinking it will be a breeze.

“Burns has better boxing ability than both Kevin Mitchell and Graham Earl. Earl has the biggest heart out of them while Mitchell is a little inconsistent. Burns will be the best I have faced in the UK, he is powerful and is a very consistent fighter. He has showed it in the past. It will be tough, like I said he is more consistent that Mitchell and he is a better boxer than Earl, if we are to compare him with the English lads.” Katsidis told Aus boxing.
