Katsidis Wants His Shot at Marquez

"Fight me or give up the title!" says Katsidis.
BoxingScene is reporting that Michael Katsidis wants to force Juan Manuel Marquez into his mandatory title shot. After taking a decision win over Vicente Escobedo on the Mayweather-Marquez undercard, Katsidis became the #1 challenger for the WBO lightweight title - a belt Marquez owns.
Sampson Lewkewicz told BoxingScene that Marquez either needs to face Katsidis soon or relinquish his title so that his fighter can fight someone else.
Given Katsidis' "interim" status, should Marquez give up the belt, it would make him the official WBO titlist
