I just find it interesting Billy that Mitchell is consistantly the smaller man at the weight, i do wonder what he weighs when he enters the ring. He's clearly gained a little bit of size prior to the Murray and Burns fights, i think that was more in reaction to being bullied arounf the ring by Katsidis. I think its definately plausible that he couldnt make weight after beefing up for Murray, prior to that bout i think super featherweight was still an avenue open to him for sure.
