Michael Katsidis Injured, Guerrero Fight in Jeopardy?

By Mark Vester

According to multiple news reports in Australia, lightweight contender Michael Katsidis suffered a sparring injury in his training camp. He reportedly suffered a cut near his eyebrow and it required five stitches to close. Katsidis is scheduled to face Robert Guerrero on the undercard to the April 9th Erik Morales-Marcos Maidana pay-per-view at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. If Katsidis were to withdraw, it would be the second fight to fall apart on the card in past two weeks. Winky Wright suffered a hand injury in training and withdrew from the scheduled undercard bout with Matthew Macklin. Katsidis' manager and trainer Brendon Smith could not be contacted for comment.

WTF for a little cut. Can't remember the last time Katsidas looked like he wanted to quit, while in a hard fight, while being drenched in his own blood. Fight to go on cause...IT HAS TO! :boxing::boxing::boxing::boxing:
