Punters can ask Contendo how he got into boxing, why its so hard to get fights made and why he has so many Mundine posters on his wall at home

No 20 Questions thanks Ash.

I'm not defending this, that or the other. I'm just trying to provide some perspective that whilst sometimes fights are wanted and people say, x should fight y, there's a whole stack more to it than just squaring off like it's the pub car park!

Mundine posters, there's none available in Australia due to all being at your house... There's not a piece of wall space left, especially in the 'John' for your special moments when your dreaming about your loved one!

Perhaps the QLD state gov could throw some dough in and hold it there?

The WA state gov have just thrown in $185k to get Green v Siaca held over there, and in the process admitted they'd errored in not ensuring Green v RJJ was held there.

Kats hasn't fought in Qld (or Oz for that matter) for 3 or 4 years - perhaps it's time he recieved some inducement to do so?

Yes it was interesting to see the numbers NSW got....$250,000 outlay for $5,000,000 return into the systemt

Unless it has a good undercard, i just don't think people in Australia will go........ rather it as a double header in the states with another good lightweight fight.

Boxing supporters and keyboard warriors on here and other sites call for this, that and every other fight to be made, but actually don't understand one-tenth of what goes on, or the factors behind the scenes to make fights, let alone shows financially viable.

It's very simple - Promoters promote the biggest possible fight they can, for the best possible return, it's not hard logic to understand.

As much as I would like / hope this fight get's made for Australia, I will not be holding my breath. I think my ticket will be a seat at my local which is a big supporter of boxing and show all the fights.

Quite simply, in my opinion (and I think most logical fight industry people) would view this as a must in London, with PPV around the world.

Con - Thank you for stating the obvious but it doesn't change the fact that Katsidis wants and deserves to bring a fight back home.

Id love him to bring it to aus, id definitely travel up to queensland to see it. Surely with some good promoting (AUS VS ENG), some money from the gov, and a good undercard would hopefully be enough to bring it to aus, maybe a double header with another more popular aussie?

Maybe thats one thing thats wrong with boxing these days, lack of respect...be it yank, uk or oz. Frank ******, is he the UK promoter that Curtis McCormick was referring to

Excuse my innocence but i get Frank Moloney and ****** mixed up.

Mick has not been home in a long time - It would be great to see this fight here in Brisbane.

Around the Ashes time would be ideal - There would be 10 000 lunatic Poms already here looking for some sort of winning feeling...

According to the scene its gone to purse bids. This should happen in England, ****** is v.good at getting his fighters title shots at home especially with the WBO and for all of his shortcomings he usually delivers.
