Review: 2014-10-25, nice exchanges from the first bell and good finish: Tommy Coyle vs Michael Katsidis gets three stars. Tommy Coyle entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 19-2-0 (8 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.29 lightweight in the world, he suffered his second defeat last year when he faced Derry Mathews for the vacant Commonwealth Lw title; since then he has won four consecutive bouts.
His opponent, the former interim Wbo world Lw champion Michael Katsidis, has a record of 30-6-0 (24 KOs=80%) but he entered as the No.73 since he lost four out of his last seven fights; he has beat Eddy Comaro and Graham Earl in 2014. Coyle vs Katsidis is valid for the IBF International lightweight title (Coyle’s second defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
