Katsidis To Face Comaro in Comeback Fight on March 14

Toowoomba star and one of Australia’s greatest ever boxers, Michael Katsidis “The Great”, 28 wins (23KO) 6 losses, will make his much anticipated return to the ring against tough Indonesian Eddy Comaro, 27 Wins (11KO) 17 losses 5 draws, when he headlines “Smithy Brings the Big fights 6” on March 14 at Rumours International in Toowoomba.

Katsidis, a former two time WBO world lightweight champion who has fought all over the world against some of the best fighters in the world and some future hall of famers, will step into the ring for the first time in almost two years and says he is very excited to do it in his hometown of Toowoomba.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back in the ring,” said Katsidis. “It has been eight years since I last fought in Toowoomba and I am very excited to have this fight in my hometown in front of my friends and family. I know Eddy is a tough, strong and experienced fighter but I am training hard and I will be ready to put on a great show and make it a successful night”.

Promoter and Katsidis’ trainer and manager Brendon Smith said having Michael fight in Toowoomba is not only huge for the garden city, but presents Eddy Comaro with a massive opportunity which can be dangerous.

“Eddy Comaro is a strong fighter,” said Brendon Smith. “He is very experienced and having the opportunity to fight Michael gives him the chance to make himself a legend. We expect him to be at 110% for this fight but Michael will be ready for whatever comes his way”.

Great! Katsidis is back. I hope he's healthy tho. Those hard numerous shots to the heads over the years might take its toll sooner than he thinks. His team better be defensive minded moving forth.

It least it's a soft touch (a skim through BoxRec says the guy hasn't fight anyone recognisable), rather than jumping in with some hard-headed Ghanaian like Mensah in 2012, or taking on Guerrero in 2011 straight after his 2010 war…

My upmost respect for the guy but i really feel bad for him considering the unneccassary damage he takes. Uses his face to block punches really not healthy.
