A purse bid was held on Monday at WBO Headquarters in San Juan, Puerto Rico for the mandatory lightweight clash between super champion Juan Diaz and interim champion Michael Katsidis. The right to promote the bout was won by the sole bidder Golden Boy Promotions, which bid $1,500,000. The proposed site for the contest is Houston, TX with the stated tentative date the weekend of January 26. The split will be 80/20 ($1,200,000.00 for Diaz and $300,000.00 for Katsidis. The parties must have their contracts signed in ten days from the date of the Purse Bid. If Juan Diaz fails to comply with the purse bid commitment by not signing the contract, Katsidis would immediately become the champion. If Katsidis fails to sign, then Diaz would have up to 18 Months to comply with his mandatory obligation.

Looks like Diaz will be home for this fight and hes getting all the money.

Glad Goldenboy won it. This should be a great fight! I think Diaz will stop Kastidis but I dont see the Ausie giving up on his stool like Freitas did or being a pushover like Julio Diaz.

I dont think so .. Katsidis by way of KO round 4 or 5 . Easy fight for him .
If you havent seen much of Katsidis , then dont go by the last fight . He was blind in his right eye from round 2 , so his fight plan had to change ...except for the ultimate gaol ...to win . He still did enough damage to cause bleeding from the brain ... Too powerful for Diaz. will man-handle him around the ring before he finishes him.
This fight will hopefully silence the critics , if not when he floors Pac-man surely everyone will finally stand up and take notice ??
:dunno:
Who want a bet ??? ....come on ?? ... I havent got many points but I will put them all up !

Well, the kids got spunk. You gotta like that!


I love Katsidis's style in the ring as well, but I just don't know if he can get past Diaz's solid fundamentals. Diaz is a very good counter-puncher and combination puncher.

You know, I'm also surprised that the fight is taking place so soon. January?? I hope Katsidis' cuts have had enough time to fully heal, or its gonna be another bloody night. I would have thought maybe March would've been more appropriate.

What do you guys think?

I think its gonna be a bloody night regardless. Diaz will beat him till he quits or the ref stops the fight.
