Katsidis targets Khan

By Craig Watt

Brendon Smith, trainer and manager of Australian WBO interim lightweight champion Michael Katsidis contacted Fightnews to dispute UK newspaper reports that Katsidis was reluctant to agree a fight with current WBA 140 pound champion Amir Khan, who is pencilled to defend his title in London on 31st July at the O2 Arena. Smith stated, “We need to put the record straight here – Khan is ducking Michael, not the other way round and we are prepared to come to the UK and defeat Khan in front of his home fans. It appears that after Michael dismissed Kevin Mitchell in style these UK fighters have temporarily lost their balls…for the record, Michael Katsidis is available.” (more…)

On August 21 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, Tomasz Adamek (41-1, 27 KO) will meet Michael Grant (46-3, 34 KO) in a fight that has more subplots than a James Bond movie. First, in 1999 Michael Grant beat another Polish heavyweight hopeful Andrew Golota. Secondly, Grant will have Eddie Mustafa Muhammad in his corner, the same trainer who guided light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson to dealing Adamek his only professional defeat.

Hitz blasts Ross the Boss

Officially, former light heavyweight champion Montell Griffin had to settle for a surprising draw in the quest for his 50th professional victory last Saturday against veteran Ross “The Boss” Thompson at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. However, Hitz Boxing Founder Bobby Hitz says there is more than meets the eye to this surprising outcome. “First of all, I commend Montell for even getting in the ring that night. Ross Thompson assured us he was in shape and ready to go all the way along until he showed up at the weigh-in so far over the contracted weight of 178 that he was at the heavyweight limit. We told him he would have to go lose some weight and then found him at the buffet with a big plate of food an hour later.” (more…)
