The fight will Timur featured almost no body shots from Seth. He threw many in this fight. For some reason his looping right hand keeps the power. He has a good jab but it was absent last night. He has some things to work on for sure but he still won and people are saying he sucks because he was hit flush for the first time in his career? Messed up.

Mitchell was exposed and wobbled by Witherspoon.

He wouldn't last 1 round with Vitali pressuring him and landing bombs.

Wlad? Forget about it. He couldn't get past the jab/cross. I don't know if he could even take a single solid punch from Wlad.


Mitchell does have potential, but he needs to work on fundamentals and come along slower.

He should take the next year, train his ass off, and fight 4 more fights against C level opposition to work out technical flaws.

After that step it up to take 2 fights like...Chambers/Dimitrenko/Chisora/Adamek/Arreola.

If he survives that, move on to someone tall, orthodox and who fights tall like Helenius/Fury/Thompson.

Then he might be ready to give Wlad a shot.

If Povetkin still has the paper strap, he could take that less dangerous route and skip the tall outside fighters.

You clearly don't know **** about boxing. Foreman started boxing/learned to box at Job Corps. He was there to learn a skill and became a standout amateur. He was not a criminal. Then, the man won a freaking gold medal in the Olympics. Nobody said that George was green or a hype job. The guy backed it up on an international level! You sir are a ****ing moron.

He's the top American prospect right now, is exciting and comes in shape (rare for HW fighters today), and had passed every test so far. Compare him to other HW prospects right now - Fury, Price, Helenius, etc - Mitchell is more athletic, powerful and exciting than all of them.

He's not a "bum", that's ridiculous. He's a very exciting prospect that's a couple of fights away from contending.
No.

Price and Helenius are more powerful.

Fury and Chisora's fights are more exciting.

Did he not win the World HW title something like 6 years after first lacing them up?

I'm not sure how long it was from when he first started boxing to when he won his first title, however I do know that he beat every amateur in the free world to win a gold medal. His amateur record was 22-4 which is not a lot of fights, but I've never heard anyone call an Olympic gold medalist green or a hype job which was your point.

Also, he was NOT a petty criminal as you stated earlier. The man was learning a trade to better himself.

I don't know what happened there. The dude fell apart, but he still is not green, nor was he a hype job. You don't win a gold medal without some serious skills. At one point the dude was the best (amateur) in the world, and no matter what has happened since, you can't take that away from him.

Quote:
and Foreman often roamed the streets of Houston, getting into trouble. He was bigger and stronger than most boys his age, and he wandered the streets, living in abandoned houses, picking pockets, mugging drunks, and making trouble for everyone he met. His mother, overwhelmed by his bad behavior, was hospitalized for emotional collapse when he was 14.
Quote:
One night, however, he had an experience that woke him up to the truth about his life. He told Hans J. Massaquoi in Ebony that after mugging some people, he crawled under a house to hide from the pursuing police and their dogs: "I started remembering from television shows that whenever the criminals were getting pursued, they would go into the water so the dogs couldn't sniff them. So I started digging myself under the mud. And for the first time I realized that I had become a criminal. I had dropped out of school and didn't know what to do with my life."
At this point, he remembered seeing a television commercial for the Job Corps, a program that educated young people and gave them job skills. He signed up the next day, and after an initial period of adjustment, learned bricklaying, forestry, and carpentry; he also learned to read and write. To siphon off the energy he used to spend street fighting, he learned the sport of boxing. Each month, he sent $50 home to his mother.
