MICHAEL Katsidis is hoping a New Year and a new start can revive his boxing career.

The Toowoomba fighter has moved to Sydney and joined forces with trainer Johnny Lewis, who guidedJeff Fenech and Kostya Tzsyu, in a bid to return to the top in the world lightweight standings.

Katsidis, 32, has a career record of 28 wins and six losses hasn't fought since April last year when he lost to Albert Mensah.

That was his fourth defeat out of his past five fights but the two-time interim WBO lightweight champion is keen to again challenge for the title.

"I'm training with Johnny Lewis now and everything is about winning that third lightweight world title," Katsidis said.

Lewis is Katsidis' third trainer in just over a year following short stints with Hollywood-based Justin Fortune and Danny McGrail on the Gold Coast.
