The 33 year-old from Toowoomba, who fought wars with Juan Manuel Marquez, Joel Casamayor, Juan Diaz and Vicente Escobedo on American soil in his hey-day, is ready to return after recently deciding against sticking to his original retirement plan, which he explained to WBN earlier this year.
Pound for pound star Marquez was famously put down heavily by Katsidis at the MGM Grand in 2010 in one of the more memorable moments for the Queensland puncher, although recent victories have been scarce.
Katsidis has lost four of his last five fights, prompting ‘The Great’ to make the difficult choice to end his career a few months ago, but after long deliberation, the likeable fighter is going to give his career another go at the end of this year.
The unheralded Albert Mensah stunned him the last time he graced the ring in April 2012 at the light-welterweight limit, with more details set to emerge soon on an opponent and at which weight class Katsidis will campaign at upon his re-emergence.
