Photo: Earl Lands in Australia For Katsidis Rematch War
Graham Earl touched down in Australia today ahead of his much anticipated rematch with former 2 time WBO world champion, Michael Katsidis 'The Great' on Friday night at Rumours International convention centre in Toowoomba.
A fit and hardened Earl today declared "Its only days until I bring back bragging rights for the whole of England as I claim my victory that I should of had in 2007, when we traded blows before. Michael has said there will be no trilogy and he is correct when he says that, as once we box I will make it his last fight and retire him from boxing. This fight has been burning inside me ever since the last fight in 2007 and I'm determined to make this right."
This fight will be streamed live on www.liveboxing.com.au

All I can do is wish good health to both men, and that Earl in particular makes it back to England with his senses intact. :(Comment by Psylence83 on 06-30-2014
