Michael Katsidis Charged With Burglary, Court on 9/30

By Shaun Brown

Boxing has been making headlines for all the wrong recently and now Michael Katsidis will find himself on the front pages rather than the back.

The 34-year-old slugger, known for his memorable battles with Graham Earl, Juan Diaz, Joel Casamayor and Juan Manuel Marquez has been charged with burglary relating to a break-in alleged to have happened on Jul 24.

Brendon Smith, trainer to Katsidis, has parted ways with the Aussie who is due to face England’s Tommy Coyle over 12 rounds at lightweight in Hull on Oct 25.

“I am very disappointed and upset about it,” Smith said.

“We have worked very hard over the last 12 months after rejoining together.”

The case is to be brought in front of Brisbane Magistrates Court on Sept. 30.

A comment from Matchroom Boxing (who promote Coyle) press department said that the fight was still going ahead to their knowledge. Promoter, Eddie Hearn, who is currently visiting his IBF welterweight champion, Kell Brook in Tenerife, after suffering recent knife injuries was unavailable for comment.

Writers note: Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed, by text, to Boxing Scene that Coyle-Katsidis will still go ahead.
