Q. Michael Katsidis will make his return to the ring in Australia, and it'sno secret that he was ready to bring the big fights to his country. What kind of respect do you have for your opponent?

A. Of course I have respect for Michael he has been in some great fights with the best in the world, but when I step into that ring all respect is forgotten because I'm here to win.

A. I respect their opinions, but I have had ample time to train and study Michael. I am not coming to Australia and fight Michael to lose.

Q. Given much of Katsidis' success was away from home what kind of advantage, if any, do you feel he will get from see fighting in his own backyard?

A. Home advantage is always great, you have the crowd cheering for you and booing the opponent. Hopefully the crowd will respect a good fight andcheer for the action not just the person.

Q. You are 28 years old, have fought 38 times but have not been given another world title shot since losing to Valero. Has that been frustrating?

A. I'm not frustrated because I have fought tough fighters who have gone onto title fights and given the chance I'll will have a title

Q. Katsidis wants to return to the top but I'm sure you also want that shot. Do you think victory over Katsidis will make that happen?

A.For sure Michael is a big name, and it would elevated my record to goonto better fights. Like I said I'm here to win.

If this goes past 3 rounds then Katsidis needs to hang em up.

WTF! Katsidis was never a WORLD champion. He was a regional champion but never a WORLD champion. I thought I lost my mind when I read Katsidis a TWO-time WORLD champion of WBO. Really, I may not be the hardest…
