Ambitious Australian Michael Katsidis, former two-time WBO interim ightweight champion, returned to the ring in a super-lightweight bout, his first fight on Australian soil in five years, and scored a third round KO over Michael Lozada, 28 years-old from Mexico.
Katsidis, 30 years-old, used his speed to win the first two rounds.
In the third Katsidis has his opponent on the ropes and lands some quality combinations.
A barrage of body punches finished the show as Lozada was leveled and remained on the canvas. The referee Adrian Cairns stopped the fight for full count at 2:18 of the 3rd round.
Katsidis, 28-4-0 (23 KOs), proved he was ready for bigger challenges in the new weight divison where he planed to complain.
Lozada is now 38-9-1 (30 KOs).
In a huge upset on the undercard, journeyman featherweight Jack Asis, 30 years-old from Philippines, shellacked IBF # 15 bantamweight Nestor Rocha, 28 years-old from California, until he sank to the canvas, ending matters in the 2nd round of scheduled 10.
Asis, 24-18-4 (13 KOs), against Rocha, 23-3-0 (8 KOs), did wath only WBC champ Hozumi Hasegawa has been able to do. In fact the Japanese champ put Rocha down in the first round.
