I don't think that Booth is going to get more out of Mitchell, unless he changes personal aspect in his life.
For what Mitchell is trying to achieve i think its a better match than Mitchell and Tibbs was, thats honestly what i think. The problem as you have said is that the personal antics like the excessive alcohol and dare i say drugs makes him a nightmare to train and will surely ensure he never reaches full potential. Chances are that his chin is cracked, a number of domestic wars and then Katsidis bouncing him around the ring really didnt help. Burns was merely there to smash what was left of it. To this day i dont understand how he cannot make super featherweight, i find it silly and maybe a case in point with regards to his dedication towards his craft. Clearly very talented with quick hands and a bit of power to boot, massive waste of talent unless of course the dark one can weave his magic.
