Michael Katsidis Decisions Josh King, Targets Jeff Horn

Junior welterweight veteran Michael Katsidis (32-7, 24 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Josh King (20-5, 9 KOs) at Rumours International, Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.

It was Katsidis' first bout since March of 2015, when he won a six round decision over Rodynie Rafol. Katsidis is now 2-0 since getting knocked out in two rounds by Tommy Coyle in October of 2014. Katsidis is 4-1 in his last five fights dating back to 2014.

King himself has been out of the ring since the fall of 2015, when he was stopped in eleven rounds by current WBA junior welterweight chanpion Ricky Burns, who also won a twelve round decision over Katsidis in 2011.

Katsidis would now like to get his hands on undefeated Australian Olympian Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs). Katsidis believes that Horn has done nothing to earn a potential showdown with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.

"In all due respect to Jeff Horn, seriously has this bloke earned the right to be calling out the likes of Manny Pacquaio? Who does he think he is filming videos of himself waving around one hundred dollar bills trying to bait Manny," Katsidis said.

"I've got another idea for Jeff - and it's realistic. You now need an opponent seeing Pacquiao is out of the equation. After I'm done with Josh King I'll happily step into the ring with you and give you a chance to earn your stripes.

"Chase a realistic option. I'm right here. You're supposed to be the man to follow in my footsteps and be the next Australian to win a world title. Before you try and follow in my footsteps, try step through my footsteps. And I'll save you some time you don't need to dress up in a suit and wave around money and make a self made video to get my attention. If you need a fight to draw a big crowd in Brisbane I'm the one, but I can't guarantee you a future fight with Manny after we meet."

[QUOTE=texasboi15;17494160][B][SIZE="5"]It's a bad look when Pacquiao has the same fighter on his radar as Katsidas lol Jus a bad look.[/SIZE][/B][/QUOTE] LOL! Horn was never on Pacquiao's radar. It was Bob Arum who wants the fight to happen. Hope the fight…

I'd rather see Katsidis vs Horn than Pacquiao vs Horn

I'm glad Katsidis got the win. He's been taking too many L's against guys I never heard of.
