That attitude is going to get Chazz knocked out. Cold.
Al Haymon picked Witherspoon for a reason. Just look at how Chazz tried to trade punches with Arreola. It was gutty, even admirable, but in end, he took a terrible beating and nearly had to be carried away on a stretcher.
That's exactly what Al Haymon had in mind when he picked Mitchell's next opponent. Someone cocky enough to try to trade with a brutal puncher like Mitchell.
