Default Puglilistic Preview: Mitchell v Katsidis

This weekend sees the introduction to the world boxing scene of one of British boxing’s brightest talents. And, unlike many of his modern contemporaries, Dagenham’s Kevin Mitchell is being pitched in at the deep end with a contest which had all the earmarks of a potential fight-of-the-year candidate from the moment it was announced.

To say that the British boxing community has looked forward to Mitchell’s tussle with Aussie hardman Michael Katsidis (26-2, 21KO) is a considerable understatement.

Mitchell (31-0, 23KO) has been touted for world honours for as long as this writer can remember. After a stellar amateur career, which culminated in his winning the 2003 ABA national featherweight title, Mitchell quickly turned professional under the protective tutelage of Frank ****** as a mere eighteen year old and began amassing the regulation quota of standard victories over journeymen, has-beens and never-weres.

Progress has been infuriatingly slow. It was to be some twenty, largely meaningless, bouts, before Mitchell was to challenge for the first meaningful title of his career, when he successfully scored a close, decision win over Ghanaian George Ashie (then 11-2-1) in October 2006 to earn the vacant Commonwealth super-featherweight title. It was hoped that this win would provide the springboard to much greater things in the immediate future.

I've backed Katsidis to get the stoppage, I just can't see Mitchell withstanding 12 rounds of non-stop pressure, and Katsidis is no Prescott either!

Although most Brits tend to go overboard on homegrown talent (except Matthew Hatton), I think that the confidence in Mitchell is well placed. Stylewise, I think Katsidis is a good pick for him too.

Late stoppage or points for Mitchell.
