No need to write Seth off just yet. He got caught by a superior technician in Banks who exposed his flaws and capitalised on them in the best possible way. Provided Seth learns from his mistakes and puts this behind him I see no reason to stick a fork in the man. Losses happen, they shouldn't signal the death knell of a career, and fans who treat them as such are only going to prevent any mildly competitive matchups from happening in the future.

Of course the hype bubble that was building around Seth has been deflated, and that's a good thing. But Mitchell's still a solid fighter with an all action style and the power (and vulnerabilities) to make for very interesting matchups in the future. I've jokingly referred to him as "Little Acorn" in the past, after Earnie Shavers, and I think they fulfill much the same place in their respective boxing landscapes. Of course it's still early days for Mitchell, but I still hold out hope that he can be an interesting competitor in the coming years.

I doubt he ever becomes champ, but then I didn't hold massive hopes for that in the first place, just took each fight as it came and enjoyed the ride. I just hope it hasn't reached its destination yet.

I just don't think Adamek would have the power, strength or size to do much to big Seth. I'm not sure that Seth would stop Adamek, but it's possible. Either way, Mitchell takes this if they fought today.
he did manage to wobble and later KO Walker, and he's got the frame and size of Mitchell

His defence is just terrible and he doesn't instinctively get boxing, he would get destroyed by a Chisora, Haye, Fury, Price, etc, let alone the K-Bro's.

As of now? Adamek, who is a good, seasoned pro. Mitchell is raw and would get stopped imo (though he does have great athleticism).

Adamek by KO. For the record, I think Adamek would win a rematch with Banks at Heavyweight as well. Say what you will but Adamek has been in there with Grant, Klitschko, Arreola, Walker, Chambers etc. If Povetkin is ranked #3 by Ring magazine, then I would say Adamek is #4. That would be a good fight.

This thread shows how underrated Adamek is on here.

Adamek still has only lost 1 HW fight and among the HW division he's the only guy besides the Klitschkos who isn't facing bums.

Too bad this poll was not made public.

Im willing to bet 90% of the votes came from Haye fans favoring Mitchell.

Mitchell KO....because of the nearly 50 fights Adamek has had a guy who started boxing 2 weeks ago is going to be the first to do it.

Adameck KO's Mitchel in 1.
He does it with a jab.

I think it's safe to say that Mitchell gets KOed by everyone in top 50. He has a weak chin, looks crude, and all he does is just rushes in with his hand low. His is as crafty as people who started boxing a month ago.

Based on what we've seen lately, you gotta take Adamek in this one now.

I'd love to see this fight. Talk about a crossroads match.

Witherspoon had Mitchell ready to go.
Banks completely destroyed Mitchell with 3 knock downs


Mitchell is a weak chinned brawler, Adamek would catch him and knock him out. Adamek has much better technical ability and a more durable chin despite being a 175 fighter
