I ****ing bet that Wlad is waiting to see if Mitchell regains his WBO ranking.
That would be ****ing re****ed.
Last fall, Wlad was all about fighting Mitchell in 2013. I know he was devastated when Banks KHTFO. Wlad himself said something to the effect that his KO losses made him a better fighter, and that Mitchell would be back.
That'd be f/d up if Wlad is waiting for that fight before announcing his next opponent.
