Katsidis is now ready to fight former two-division champion Robert “the Ghost” Guerrero in Las Vegas, a fight that manager/trainer Brendon Smith says he can, and will win. He also believes the fight will potentially be for an interim lightweight title, as Marquez will step up a weight division and vacate the title before the fight.
"We believe the fight will end up being for the Interim world title," Smith said.
Michael announced in a media conference that he was very happy about the new partnership with Elmore Oil, particularly in light of the miraculous recovery the product had provided for a recent hand injury he had suffered.
Elmore Oil is a logical partner for Katsidis, with the natural pain reliever being promoted for muscular and joint pain as well as being a natural anti-inflammatory. Manufactured in Australia and exported to 16 countries around the world, Elmore Oil is renowned for being able to speed up the rate of recovery from soft tissue injury and is highly sought after by elite athletes and teams around the globe.
His (Katsidis) opponent, Robert Guerrero, is a southpaw with an impressive record of 28-1-1, 18 Kos, and he is a former IBF featherweight and super featherweight world champion. His last two wins were over Vicente Escobedo and Joel Casamayor, both of whom have also fought Katsidis, with Casamayor being the first professional to beat the Australian.
“I’m excited to be back in the ring, I’m hungry to get the title back, and I’m confident that I can tear through Guerrero so I can once again cement my place at the top of the lightweight division,” Katsidis said, “The fight will be action packed as always, and one I want the Australian people to support me in”.
Katsidis v Guerrero will be broadcast in the USA live on April 9th and in Australia this will air at 11:00am on the 10th of April. The card also features a fight between Mexico's numerous world title-winner Erik Morales and Argentina's Marcos Maidana (originally billed as the main event) however media pundits are all in agreement that the Katsidis v Guerrero fight will steal the centre stage.
