Michael Katsidis Prepared For a War in Earl Rematch

By Glen McCullough

MICHAEL Katsidis thought he had sung his final song.

Two years spent on the sidelines after wooing fans around the world during an exciting five-year international career looked to have ended his days in the boxing spotlight.

But a return to his beloved home-town Toowoomba has given Katsidis new voice and a hunger to chase a special career win at Rumours International next week.

Katsidis will look to continue his successful return to the ring under trainer-manager Brendon Smith when he meets England's Graham Earl in a rematch of their memorable 2007 WBO world lightweight title fight.

Up for grabs is the WBU world junior welterweight title belt Katsidis is desperate to claim in his final Toowoomba fight appearance.

"I thought I'd sung my final song," Katsidis said.

"But now this is happening, it's kind of surreal.

"The WBU title is big in England and Graham Earl wants it so badly.

"But this is my last fight in Toowoomba and to win this title not only for Australia but to do it here in my home town would be a great moment.

"I don't know if people realise what I'm in for against Earl.

"He's been training for this in Ireland since we signed.

"But I've worked so hard and the people I've got behind me are getting me back to where I was.

"Brendon said I've come on 100 lengths since my last fight.

"I'm where I need to be."

[QUOTE=LA_2_Vegas]Given the brutality of their first fight, your post is kinda concerning to hear. Didn't ref Mickey Vann throw the towel back to Earl's corner and let it continue? It made for drama, but i hope a towel doesn't go ignored this time.[/QUOTE] In a way it's good that Vann th...

[QUOTE=PittyPat]My friend and I met Earl after the Burns-Katsidis fight, and he was punch drunk as anything. Very friendly chap and got a pic taken with him ringside. We even asked jokingly "When's the rematch gonna happen?", but we could tell that his days in a ring should be long over. 3 years...

Katsidis will probably blitz Earl this time around.

Earl will be getting TKO'd within 3rds he just cannot trade with Katsidis especially not 3yrs after that punishment he received off Khan where he looked completely washed up
