Crushing victory for Michael Katsidis
I've managed to upload in two parts last Saturday's WBO world lightweight championship fight between reigning champ Michael 'The Warrior' Katsidis and challenger Kevin Mitchell. The bout was held in East London and was subject to a big build up with Mitchell being touted as this country's next great pugilist. However, the fight turned out a mismatch as Greek Australian Katsidis proved to be much fitter, faster, stronger and meaner than the Englishman, easily overwhelming him in less than three rounds. Having seen off Mitchell, Katsidis – who enters the ring dressed as a Greek warrior and has the Star of Vergina emblazoned on his back – will now be looking to use his fearless, relentless style to earn more lucrative fights in America and unify the lightweight division.
