Chat with Michael Katsidis

Auto Update: Off
Welcome to The Show! On Tuesday, we'll go inside the ring when former world champion boxer Michael Katsidis stops by to chat about his upcoming bout.

Katsidis (23-1, 20 KOs) will meet Houston's Juan Diaz (33-1, 17 KOs) in a much anticipated 12-round, 135-pound contest on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 10:15 p.m. ET on HBO's Boxing After Dark. In July of '07, Katsidis knocked out Graham Earl in the fifth round to up his consecutive knockout streak to 13 and claim the interim WBO lightweight title in just his 22nd pro fight. However, this past March, Katsidis suffered a setback after a 10th round TKO loss to Joel Casamayor.

A boxer since the age of 11, Katsidis chalked up a 75-6 amateur record and made it to the quarterfinals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, representing his home country of Australia.
