Diaz vs. Katsidis

Unread postby Rusty » Sat Sep 06, 2008 4:24 am

Gotta love this fight.

Two highly respected boxers in their prime, both coming off their first defeats from quality veteran opponents, colliding in a non-title bout.

This is going to be a war... possibly the fight of the year.


I have Katsidis winning by late stoppage.

The Baby Bull is my pick by TKO, no surprise there.
Faster and has a lot better chin, that will be the difference.

Can't wait for this one.

Expecting it to be a great, bloody war.

Baby Bull responds from the wake up call loss to Campbell and looks very impressive in ending it via a 8th rd TKO.

Loss could have been the best thing that ever happened to Diaz. Much like Paul Williams, many forget this cat was a fringe top ten lb for lb guy in the sport before his shocking loss.

And also like Williams, I expect him to respond big time tonight.

Rocky Juarez just won't go away. Gutty win though. This win means we're going to have to watch another good fighter beat his ass again though.

This should be a great fight. With graybeards Casamayor and Campbell holding the belts at 130, this could be the first of multiple fights between these two, who could be the future of the division.

Would love to see the winner of this fight Juan Manuel after he beats the shit out of Casamayor.

Da Baby Bull is back. Impressive performance against a tough foe. He did fade late though.

Can't believe one of the judges has Katsidas winning that fight.

Had it 117-111 Baby Bull on my card.

Gotta love Juan Diaz. Class act.

Him vs Juan Manuel would be an epic battle.

I had it the same, 117-111 for Diaz. Very impressive performance against a tough, powerful opponent like Katsidas.

The judge that had Katsidas winning the fight should be looking for a new job right about now.

Good all around performance by The Baby Bull.

Barrios' lip on the undercard might have been the nastiest thing I have ever seen.
