Sparks flew at today's press conference as Michael Katsidis and Graham Earl locked horns and flew into a scuffle as they were posing for a photo with the WBU World title belt they are fighting for. Tempers boiled after a war of words on the microphone between the arch enemies as Earl made his intentions clear earlier in his speech stating, "I don't care about the belt, I've won titles before, I just want to beat Katsidis here and make the trilogy back home in Luton. I was winning the first fight, and he (Katsidis) looked relieved when the fight was stopped." Katsidis spoke after Earl and said, "Graham has made a mistake coming here, there will be no trilogy, ill put a stop to it on Friday night. "

"We can go out to the car park now if you want," Katsidis told Earl as he was pulled to one side by fellow Smithy's Gym boxer Herman Ene-Purcell, who happens to work in security at various Toowoomba venues. Earl politely obliged and said, "We can go right here" as he tried to fulfil Katsidis' request to the carpark brawl. Promoter Brendon Smith said, "Security will be hired for the weigh-in for the next time these guys come together as we are having a job keeping them apart."

"We can go out to the car park now if you want," Katsidis told Earl as he was pulled to one side by fellow Smithy's Gym boxer Herman Ene-Purcell, who happens to work in security at various Toowoomba venues.

Jokes were as the mood lightened in a friendly manner between Brayd 'The Great White' Smith and Jarret 'Juarez' Owen on who will be taking home the belt on Friday night.

Darren 'The Cumbrian Cyclone' Askew and Eddy Comaro face off for the first time before they come together in a 5 round Jnr Welterweight bout on Friday.

'Iron' Will Young, 'The Herminator' Herman Ene Purcell, Tressa 'T-Rex' Lindenberg and Josh 'The Boss' Baillie all pose for a photo for the media ahead of their upcoming bouts on Smithy Brings the Big fights 7.

"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. The night will also feature a stacked undercard which will include Brayd 'The Great White' Smith defending his WBC World Youth Title v Jarret 'Juarez' Owen "Iron" Will Young who will square off against Emanuel Micallef for the Australian featherweight title. Filipino star Jack Asis will take on Revo Rengkung. Also on the card will be the battle of the big men "The Hermanator" Herman Ene-Purcell vs "Frosty the ice man" Jamie Frost. English import Darren "The Cumbrian Cyclone" will take on Indonesian Eddy Comaro as well as fellow Englishman Josh "The Boss" Baillie vs Kyle "Tank" Teer. Tressa "T-Rex" Lindenberg will also be on the card when she takes on the Gold Coast's Brittany Muscat.

Tickets are on sale now at Smithy's Gym. The prices are the same as the previous event at $95 for Ringside A, $75 for Ringside B and $55 for general tickets.

Says everything about the WBU that it's putting up its "World Championship" belt for a fight between two brave but shot fighters, very shot in Earl's case. They had a rousing fight some years back but matching them again in 2014 does nothing good for the image of the sport.
