I remember when Katsidis went up to junior welter and his shots didn't affect Albert Mensah. Hopefully he can handle a welter. He was fun to watch but I wish he'd retire and enjoy life after boxing.

Even though he is shot Rocky should KO this guy whom I didn't realize was smaller, big drop in class for Katsidis.
