Team Katsidis: Ndou Bout Possible, Many Other Options

The rumour mill is running hot around Michael Katsidis “the Great” today, following his stoppage over Mexican Michael Lozada in his junior Welterweight debut on Saturday night.

Katsidis has now been linked to numerous world class fights all over the world but manager trainer Brendon Smith says nothing is confirmed “We haven’t come to an agreement with Lovemore (Ndou) yet, as already reported, however the fight does interest us. Michael is having a short break at the moment and once he returns we will go over options. This is an amazing fight for Australia and Lovemore is one tough hard fighter who, like Michael, has fought the best. You won’t need a ring for this fight, a phone box would be sufficient!”

A fight of this calibre against two Australian legends would almost certainly fill any arena in the country and if terms are agreed upon the fight would take place at 140 pounds (Junior Welterweight) and will more than likely be at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, although the team hasn’t ruled out Sydney or Melbourne either.

Katsidis has also been linked to numerous other fights around the globe and Brendon Smith said that now Michael has closure from his brother Stathi’s passing, he is back and ready to fight “we have a lot of options outside of Lovemore at the moment, Kevin Mitchell wants a rematch in England, Andy Murray wants a shot in Ireland, Joel Casamayor rematch (which is one that burns Michael) and also with Guererro pulling out of his fight with Maidana there is a potential show stopper on the cards right there! Erik Morales, Humberto Soto are options and of course Michael will fight Amir Kahn should he want to take the matchup.”

Katsidis is a fighter that has a large draw card across the world and there isn’t a bad fight in the above names... The boxing world will be eagerly awaiting a confirmation from Katsidis and his team.

N'dou is a great next step at 140. Is Julio Diaz retired? He's a good option. If they want to take a chance, Prescott. That's a fun fight.

Sign someone and let's have a fight. Hopefully Katsidis continues to look good at 140

[QUOTE=Bajingo;11009661]Fly him over to the US to fight Maidana![/QUOTE] Too big. Are you trying to get Katsidis killed? A small LW like Marquez, and a past prime Casamayor stopped Katsidis, imagine what the bigger guys at 140 would do to…

I have seen like 25 different possible match ups for Katsidis. It's like every day a new match up is talked about? Anyways, HBO should push Katsidis to be the new Gatti. He has everything except for a big trilogy…
