Some quotes:

****** said, “I’m delighted that I won the purse bids for this cracking contest and I’m sure it will be an explosive encounter. Both guys are come forward, all action, fighters throwing plenty of punches so it’s hard not to see this fight developing into real war.”

Mitchell, 25, added, “Frank has done a fantastic job getting me the fight and bringing it to England. I know all about Katsidis, I’ve watched him over here against my then stablemate Graham Earl and I’ve watched all his fights on DVD. My trainer Jimmy Tibbs is the best in the business and he’ll work-out the plan to beat this guy. This is the kind of fight I’ve dreamed of since I was kid and now I’ve got it I can’t wait. The English and the Aussies have got a big rivalry and we kicked their arses last year to regain the Ashes, so I’m looking forward to kicking Katsidis’ arse to win the title.”

Fightnews also reckon the fight will take place in May.

Dunno..... the WBO offices are in Puerto Rico.

The gets you 1.49 US$, or 1.65 AU$.... so either way it's still a lot of cash.
