Listen man, I seen The Gentleman put Mayhem on queer street so I have no disillusions as to what kind of chin he has (or his caliber as a fighter). All I am saying is that Banks does not seem to have one either, and Mitchell may get by in this rematch. He did something really dumb when he fought Banks to get KO'd, and Banks was fighting scared up until that point. There is no reason for him doing that retarded "lunge in without his hands up and chin wide open" this time around.
