By Edward Chaykovsky

Junior welterweight Michael Katsidis (28-6, 23KOs), 32, is looking for a fresh start in the new year. The boxer, who for the last few years was living in Las Vegas, is moving to Sydney to resume his career. Katsidis lost four of his last five in the ring. He blames much of the bad luck on the unexpected passing of his brother in 2010.

Stathi Katsidis, one of the top Thoroughbred horse jockeys in Australia, was 31-years-old when he was found dead just a few weeks before Michael was set to face Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas. Katsidis has only recently been able to overcome the tragedy.

"I really feel like Im back, like Im entering the final phase of my career, he told Sunday Telegraph. And its all because that weight I carried for two years, its been lifted."

Of course there are days where Im still angry with him. Where Ill say Stathi you d***head, what did you do it for?. But at least now I understand that, while he made mistakes, my brother still died a legend. Still has so many people who remember him as a great jockey, a loveable larrikin, a wonderful mate. Stathi went out having created his legacy. And really . . . what else has a bloke got?"

He's always swelled but now his face swells hard after only the first couple of rounds. Call it quits and don't wait for a more obvious sign.

Sadly not possible at this point for him. He is risking severe damage.
