I wish it were Welliver instead, but I am backing Jon Banks for the KO win. He is much more skilled than Seth Mitchell and will land some bombs on Seth's chin. I don't think Seth will take those bombs too well. This is Banks vs Walker all over again. If Jon doesn't get sparked himself he will spark that arse.

Tiggy- Blevel....great win for a contender much less a prospect
Witherspoon C+level...better than the Gaverns and Dings and Palas, but not a contender. Still, excellent win for a prospect and a goods stay busy fight for a contender.
Banks.....B level............IF Mitchell wins this one....surely he's ready for the title shot. Not that he'll win, but he'll have beaten 3 consecutive stiff tests, which is far more than I can say for some contenders.

Good fight in my view. Banks has good fundamentals - he's not exciting, but he's probably the best guy Mitchell has faced so far. Be interesting if Banks can take it into the later rounds.

I don't think he'll be ready. He has still gone a maximum of 8 rounds and only once at that - 3 years ago. He needs to know he can actually do it for 12 before he challenges for a title.

My initial thought when i saw this thread was Good Fight! I'm happy to see most feel the same.

Banks is schooled will be a good test for $.$. and will show him some moves if $uper $eth doesn't blow him out early. Good bit of matchmaking this.

NABF heavyweight champion for a couple years now, with a win over Walker. It's not really fair to label him as just a blown up cruiserweight.
he's a blown up cruiser..... its still a decent fight thought....banks has proved that blown up cruisers can beat alot of shit heavyweights and also prove that the NABF title means nothing the days when the last 3 guys that you fought for it were

This is anything but a garbage fight. Banks won't wilt unless Mitchell brings his game. If Mitchell tries to phone it in he'll be in for a long night.

He's a C level guy, whereas his last opponent was a B- level guy; it's a step backwards which isn't what Seth needs if he wants to improve. . .

Like other posters have said, he needs some rounds. . .

Rather see him against someone like Arreola, but at least Mitchell is staying active.

1. Yeah, everybody's a blown-up cruiser who fought there. Holyfield, Adamek, Haye, Banks, Gomez, Huck who arguably beat Povetkin recently. If you're a regular sized cruiserweight, you're a natural smaller heavyweight. Is Banks really that different in natural size to career heavyweight Eddie Chambers? Better yet, would you advise him to move back down to cruiserweight? I wouldn't. He's a heavyweight. 3 years, NABF title, wins over heavyweights I know like Walker, who I actually don't think is "shit" (I think he's "okay"), I'm quite satisfied that he is a legit heavyweight, and arguably a top 25 one. Regardless, it's time to give up on the blown-up cruiserweight shit, in my opinion.

2. NABF is not pointless at all. It's a good regional title and still serves as a nice stepping stone title. If a world title separates the men from the boys, the regionals like NABF and EBU separate the pre-pubescent boys from the pubescent boys. What are you supposed to expect? The opponents you listed are pretty run-of-the-mill standard for these kinds of titles and I've seen them put on some fair regional-level performances and Banks has not dropped any to them, right? This is the level you fight at before that step up. It's not D and F guys. It's the C- and above league. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Mitchell hasn't proven shit. Just that his chin is glass. Banks has the power to break that glass.

I'm taking Johnathan Banks here by K.O. Which will send Mitchell back crying to the CFL.
That same punch that hurt Mitchell would have floored WLad and you know it. Mitchell may have a weak chin but it is not near as bad as Wlads.

Banks is 6'3 and weighs in the 220s and has fought at heavyweight for 3 years. Blown up cruiserweight is a bit of an overstatement.

Good fight.

Banks is a good test and a dangerous fighter. If Mitchell does not up his game he will get beat.
