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

"Smithy Brings the Big Fights 7" at Rumours International in Toowoomba. It will be headlined by the much anticipated rematch between Michael Katsidis "The Great" vs Graham "Duke of" Earl for the WBU world junior welterweight title.

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. :(

All in all this is just pathetic for Australian boxing! It wasn't that long ago local sh1t used to be free on fox sports and now it's all streamed and you have to pay for it! What a [email protected] joke!…
