Default How far will Katsidis Go?

What are your thoughts? I see plenty of flaws waiting to be exposed, but so far he has been a MASSIVE hit with overseas fans. People are genuinely excited about him, you only need to read through the general forum in recent times to see that. And although he does have flaws, he is still very explosive and very powerful. I think he is going to be involved in some great match ups in the future. At only 26 years of age, he looks to be the guy to carry Aussie boxing into the future, particularly as many of Australia's other fighters are presumably on the decline.

If he can work on his defensive technique yet retain his aggressive nature i think he will go far. I just hope his eyes and skin don't become an issue; they seemed to cut quite easily in his last fight - but on the plus side i dont remember him sustaining that type of facial damage in the past. I think he can go far but i dont want to see him take on too bigger fights just yet - he is ready for a Casamayor but perhaps not one of the Diaz boys

Casamayor is a harder fight for him based on styles. He would lose to both guys, but at least against Diaz he will look impressive in doing so.

I think he can go along way!! What a great action fighter, and he is goin to make a lot of aussies very proud of him.

I say he beats them all at lightweight .....oneday, but not yet.

And yeah of course i wanna see him take on the best but id rather see him guided like The Baby Bull has been for a few years.

Go Kat!!!

He definitely is NOT ready for Casa.

I wopuld put $1000s of dollars down that he'd get beaten easy by him.

I agree however I wouldn't bet that much money unless I could drug Katsidis water. I suck at gambling.

I personally believe Katsidis wil turn out like Gatti, a fairly solid fighter who win, loss or draw will always pull a crowd and have a fan base just because his fights wld be exciting. Atm however i wldnt throw him in the deepend right away. Perhaps have him fight someone who his ranked above him by 2 rungs.

Default Re: How far will Katsidis Go?

Now i wish sometimes i was a Manager for a boxer like this.

because with Kat this would be my plan.

Jan 2008 vs Nate Campbell (35-5-1) and nearly 36 years old.

if he wins
Aug 2008 vs Juan Diaz (32-0-0) it might be his only chance at Diaz.
if he loses to Campbell
Jun 2008 vs Ray Narh (20-1-0) he would beat this guy.

now if he loses to Diaz
you go after say
Joan Guzman again
or
Julio Diaz.

that what i would do.

My question is who will find him out if he is to be..

What level can he reach? I didnt see the us fight, and haven't seen him in a while since he's been on our cards.

I agree I reckon Nate Cambell would be a good next fight for Katsidis . Casa is probably to slick for him and Diaz would make for a fight of the year but would be worried Katsidis might take a bad beating if he fought the baby bull right now . Katsidis needs to take a few more fights and tidy up his defence. Either way he's one of the most exciting fighters out there at the moment

Campbell is still a very tricky fighter. I don't think they will want to take such a hard fight and risk a potentially great fight with diaz. If juan wins his next unification bout, a match with Katsidis could almost head its own PPV as the main event. Watching Katsidis last fight he had a lot of trouble figuring out how to approach his southpaw opponent. I think Katsidis almost needs to totally give away trying to box and just go for the kill the full 12. The times when he tried to box he was getting beaten badly. I was very suprised he used very little head movement and was just eating shots in some parts.

I think he can become a star. His style is MADE for TV, so the likes of Showtime or HBO will love him forever. It only takes one shot for a puncher so that will always keep Rocky in any fight.

I think he will improve with every fight. Fighting guys like Amonosot is good because it makes him lift his game, and he can watch the tapes and learn from his mistakes hopefully.

Katsidis will go a long way. probably into the second row when he is punched out of the ring. Anyone think third row?
