Default Who would you like to see Rocky fight next?

Katsidis had a solid win. well from his face you would have thought he got flogged. but it wasnt the case he knocked down Amonsot twice during the fight.
and also it now has come out that Amonsot has a brain bleed from taking to much punishment and could have died if he was hit in the right place.
anyway a great fight.

now who would you like to see Katsidis fight next.

now Diaz is supossed to give Katsidis a shot within the 9 months from about now.
but after seeing Rocky's face he will need at least 6 months off before he even enters the gym again. so who are your picks for his next fight.

Mine are between 2 men before fighting Juan (the Baby Bull) Diaz.

an the it is between

Jonathon Thaxton (UK)
or
Nate Campbell (US)
then after fighting one of those two then i think he should fight Diaz.

i wouldnt choose nate campbell, from the little ive seen of him - he seems like a slick fighter. And would not be a good tuneup fight for kat before diaz. (i would like to see this fight though). He needs to verse a boxer with a similar style to diaz.

i truely believe a 35 year old Nate Campbell is perfect since Juan Diaz is in talks with Julio Diaz.

Katsidis vs Campbell Jan 2008.

Yep im with you on this aswell. i saw you post it in another thread.

and all i could think was perfect fight for Katsidis.
why there are all these reasons.

*Campbell losing twice to Peden. (Rocky ask Peden to help break down Nates style etc)

*Campbells age helps the fast paced Katsidis.

*Its a decent USA name in Campbell

*Plus Juan Diaz looks set to sign a fight against Juluio Diaz
* which is good for Katsidis because i believe he needs one more decent fight before taking on the Baby Bull.

*It gives him a chance to work longer on his defense.

Michael Katsidis vs Nate Campbell in Jan 2008= PERFECT.

They were only cuts they won't take 6 months to heal. I would say about a1 month max before he could start training properly again. I would like to see him fight against Diaz. Diaz is a big name in the US right now, and win or lose Kat will put up a great show and will really make a big name for himself. To be honest one fight isn't going to make a difference if he fights the Baby Bull. Diaz is just a better fighter, however style wise these guys match up perfectly, and Diaz will give Kat plenty of chance to land. If he waits and misses his chance, it might eventually come against a guy like Casamayor who will more then likely frustrate kat and box to a wide UD, without really doing anything to enhance Katsidis reputation in the process.

Excellent point. Put him in with a solid pressure fighter and watch Katsidis bomb away at him. His management should be doing everything possible to make the most of his crowd pleasing style.

Casamayor!!! his old and ripe for the KO, plus he would have a nice shade of ring rust.

A slick southpaw with a good chin ripe for the KO??? Tell me your kidding. The only thing that could really trouble Casa is he has been fairly inactive, although not to the extent that it should effect his performance dramatically. Style wise this would be a very bad fight for kat. Casa would box and Kat would have trouble getting off. If he had a hard fight against a guy like Amonsout (spelling) what do you think Casamayor would do, who fights in a very similar style only is much more experienced and much better?

He's fighting Juan Diaz next right? this will be the ultimate test for Katsidis. Diaz is a whirlind he doesn't stop punching. The way Katsidis likes to brawl it'll be perfect for the Mexican.Amonsot was a solid in-experienced opponent hand picked to make Katsidis look good on the global boxing scene.Katsidis got cut the worse cut ive seen.Other than that he won convincingly. Diaz is a huge step up in class. The real Mckoy. It'll be a WAR.
