before the mitchell fight kats hadnt been to england for years and had only fought there once before anyway.

people still had heard of the man and knew he was worth watching...keeping a wide berth from oz has **** all to do with it...

when hatton, lewis etc fought a lot in the states and went back for the odd fight in england u couldnt get tickets.

Because when he was about to fight JMM after the death of his brother British people even started a Katsidis Express. Green and Mundine command most attention here so he probably feels more appreciated there. JMO.

Maybe if the fight was with a loud mouth media hugging black fella from the land it may have helped the ticket sales 'sad really...

FFS Bulij and OIAM why bring these 2 cherrypicking,bottomfeeding bull**** artists into a Katsidis thread? There are plenty of Mundine and Green threads.

So he's making life decisions based on ESB threads? That's brilliant.

No what I meant was the Lozada fight received **** all coverage in Australia and the British are much more appreciative of real boxers than we are. Sad but true.

Last I read he was happy to be back home with family sipping on his Nanna's soup.

How much money has he made out of boxing so far?

What if any assetts does he have?

If he is comfortable and was smart with his money then how nuch more does he need?

Does boxing really pay FA?
