RING RETURN: Toowoomba boxer Michael Katsidis. Dave Noonan

TOOWOOMBA boxer Michael Katsidis will be back in the ring next month.

Katsidis will fight in the main event on the FOX Sports Thursday Night Fights event at the Melbourne Pavilion on February 21.

Katsidis has a career record of 28-6-0 (23KO) but has endured four losses from his past five fights, the last of which was back in April last year.

Murray thinks this fight is a good stepping stone to get Katsidis back towards the top of the world lightweight ranks.

"He's moved back to Australia and had a few changes," Murray said.

"The way to bring any thoroughbred back to form is to give them a couple of runs."
