The same reason Holyfield, Tommy Morrison, post-prison Tyson, and Ike Ibeabuchi could all look like the Hulk despite all the endurance work that goes along with training to be a professional boxer.

They all ate their Wheaties.

Man, Freddy you are fukin Great guy!

Lets put it this way:

Banks =Fat =aluminium
Mitchell =Muscle =lead

So if you have one litre bottle full of aluminium chips and another one litre bottle full of lead chips which one do you think weights more? And the point is both are packed in same sized thing.

Who weights more:

a)Mitchell

b) Banks

?

Freddie's right. A pound of feathers and a pound of lead weighs the exact same thing. A pound.

Muscle's more dense than fat, meaning that if you have the same volume of each, the container of muscle will weigh more.

Pretty much bullshit.

Strong legs are the fortitude for your overall strength.

Its his core

Guys with large, powerful torsos will weigh more than guys like the Klits who are ripped but have narrow trunks

Vitali is not really that heavy for his size anyway ... and Wlad has massive arms but a rather small lower body ...

You are technically correct, but you and Freddie are being dense (pun intended) taking the phrase "muscle weighs more than fat" so literally. To the layman, weight and density are interchangeable, as is mass. We are already incorrect when we say the "weigh - in" and "weight limit", because it is truly the mass-in and mass limit. However, the words weigh and weight roll off the tongue easier than mass. Furthermore, we call the fighting area the "ring," when it is in fact square and the hand covers "gloves," when they are technically mittens.

Too bad Seth can't strengthen that glass jaw he has, but neither can Banks.

Wouldn't be suprised if they traded knockdowns.

Eh, it's a distinction I wouldn't have bothered to make if people weren't talking as though what Freddie said wasn't accurate.

No he wont be there but he should. Wlad should be in his corner. But Wlad is a heartless *****. Wlad tries to act like Banks is just a trainer. Banks is going to lose bad and its Wlads fault.

Post prison Tyson was the same weight and build as pre prison Tyson.

You mean that jaw that withstood massive shots from both Ibragimov and Witherspoon, allowing Mitchell to continue fighting and win?

Yeah, that sure needs strengthening!

Mitchell's excellent jaw is the main reason he's still a serious contender.

He didn't withstand massive shots from Timor nor Witherspoon. He buckled and was in survival mode off a jab from Timor. With Chazz dude just started winging and luckly cauught Chazz and took him out.
