Unfortunately boxing really doesnt rate in this country so apart from die hard fans I'd say neither guy is well known.

However if both guys were involved in another sport which is high profile and kept the same attitudes then Katsidis would most definitely be the more popular.

Most Aussies prefer the laid back attitude over the in your face ****iness.

Which appeals more to the home crowd?

Katsidis gets the greater share of my own sympathies, but Darchinyan's style seems more suited to the stereotype of the raised-bird, "Hey, ****ya!" sort of attitude that's drilled in my head about you lot.
Mate you pinned them both down well with your descriptions.

Like both but really dig Darch's evervescent bravado and confidence...he takes it into the ring and back it up no nonsense.

This is true unless there is a fair bit of piss taking and Darch nails this fantastically.

Emanuel seems to have a high price on himself.

he lives there and spars with cats... nobody got love for him there...

they all try to fight him like it's life or death and try to take his head off...

he's too kind.... he needs to get out of kangaroo land and return back...here.

you aussies never showed him respect.

plain and simple.

I must have missed the meeting when we forced Emanuel to move here at gunpoint.

It's against Ruslan Provodnikov. He's going to get rooted - and not in the nice way.
