Katsidis Willing To Explore Mitchell Rematch in England

Michael Katsidis is willing to come to England to take on Kevin Mitchell, says his manager Brendon Smith.

But Smith believes that Mitchell does't fancy the fight.

That will come as a surprise to Mitchell, who called out the Aussie in the aftermath of his win over John Murray.

If Mitchell and Katsidis did meet, it would be a rematch of their May 2010 meeting.

Then Katsidis halted Mitchell in three rounds.

But King Kev says that he wasn't in shape for that fight - and wants to set the record straight.

"There has been numerous call out's for Michael through John Murray, Graham Earl, Amir Khan and Kevin Mitchell with all fizzling out but not from our part," said Smith after Katsidis won at the weekend.

"It is plain and simple and I am not being disrespectful, but the English boys don't want any part of Michael except for calling his name to promote themselves.

"Michael loves to fight in England and has many fans. He loves the passion of the crowds, whether they are for him or against him.

"He will travel, but does anyone in England really want to fight him! That's the big question."

Katsidis looking for cheap wins now? -- he's on the verge of becoming irrelevant if he doesn't beat someone real in the neat future.

for some reason, i see it playing out like the first fight, but perhaps the tko comes later. i think katsidis should focus on 140 now though. rack up some easy wins, regain tons of confidence and get a fight…
