I haven't seen the fight since it was not broadcast here, but I think the USA may need to look elsewhere for it's next champion.
The thing is, is that Banks is not considered a world beater at heavyweight, in fact he's not really even a true heavyweight, and it sounds to me like he beat Mitchell pretty easily.
Mitchell is 30 now, and a loss like this definitely knocks Mitchell down the list of 'guys to watch'. Time isn't on his side.
I think it highlights how important it is to have a good solid foundation in amateur boxing. Seth has the physical tools but not the experience and at this stage, it may be too late to really build that solid foundation.
I'm upset that Mitchell lost...I am a fan of the guy, but this is a sobering result.
