Thanks Chef, that explains a lot.

Also, Banks has put on a lot of weight since those days. - Probably some in his legs, which increases punching power.


Does Banks train full-time, or does he have some kind of "day job?"

Banks will never be a top HW and quite frankly I don't think he is ever gatekeeper level at HW.
Seth may have a glass jaw but he does have dangerous power. Not unlike Arreola's or Stiverne's.

Usually history repeats itself, but Mitchell is definitely working on a more safety oriented style this time. You can be guaranteed of that. I just hope it doesn't turn him super-boring like Steward did to Wlad.

Banks in 1-6 is where the money is at
I expect Mitchell to be a bit more cautious but he will definitely get caught again and taken out
Probz around rounds 4-5

You missed my point. I was trying to avoid slandering Mitchell but... I don't see how he can change the first result in such little time without juicing. Those who are planning on wagering on this one...especially those betting on Banks... should hold off until the weigh-in, IMO.

Seth's problem wasn't anything that juicing would help him with. The juice can't fix a glass jaw or sloppy fundamentals.

Again, I'm not accusing him of anything...I just don't understand how he could possibly improve enough in a couple months to change the result from the first fight without amplifying his punching power with PEDs. Banks shrugged off and countered Seth's best shots in the first fight and power is really the only thing that Mitchell brings to the table against a fighter as seasoned as his opponent.

There's no way he'll be able to outbox Banks over 12 rounds and there's no amount of neck exercises that'll help his punch resistance. Banks is going to counter with authority and Mitchell still won't be experienced enough to anticipate them.

Maybe I'm missing something but I never saw Banks hurt in their fight.

You didn't see Banks hurt in the first fight, probably were too busy looking for needle marks and acne on Mitchell.

Ok fine. When exactly did Seth hurt Banks? Keep in mind that I've watched the fight about 10 times.

Hurts him early in the 1st with a right hand that sends him off balance and starts his holding for the rest of the event.

Then in the second he hurts him very badly with a body shot and then he gets wild, gets countered and that is the fight.
