Default Seth Mitchell vs Johnathan Banks

How do you guys see this going? will the brute strength, size and power of Mitchell prevail or will Banks' skills be enough to get him through ?

Honestly I can see the Banks upset. Mitchell is slow and no better than Wach.

I can see Banks winning, but expect Mitchell to stop him inside 5.

Honestly, I like Banks, he's a good guy...and while he's a good boxer, he's not near the top of the heavyweights. If Mitchell can't get past Banks with relative ease, I think you can write him off as a potential title challenger.

Seth's gonna walk through Banks.

Mitchell's gonna be a monster.

50 / 50.

This will be a VERY interesting fight.

My guess: Mitchell will swing away, and Banks will out-box him, for maybe 7-8 rounds. then Banks will tire, make a mistake, and Mitchell will trap him in a corner and get it done.

I'm pretty much in agreement with that. Similar to the Witherspoon fight but will go a few rounds longer.

I like Mitchell with work-rate. Perhaps he might fade in the business end of the fight though. I'll go with Mitchell on points, close but clear.

On another note, I really do hope Mitchell makes it past Banks. He seems like a nice person having seen some footage of him outside of the ropes. Beating Banks would set up a fight with Wladimir beautifully down the line.

Mitchell is going to make Banks a full time trainer.

Banks decision, maybe late TKO. Mitchell is an overrated can, Witherspoon had him on queer street. Not saying banks is anything special, but he has much better fundamentals, experience and is just all around a better fighter than Seth Mitchell.

I don't see the hype around Mitchell, I guess some people are just desperate to see a good American HW. Mitchell looked like absolute trash in his last fight .

Banks is chinny and doens't hit too hard, but he is knowledgeable and skilled so I think he'll give Mitchell some rounds to learn from. It's a smart match up from Golden Boy. I also think it's smart on K2's part because they'll have some "inside scoop" on Mitchell's style if/when Wlad ever gets him in the ring.

Seth is the bigger guy, less worn and he throws a lot more punches. Gotta go with Mitchell by late stoppage after losing some early rounds.

PS: Banks will make this fight frustrating to watch for a few rounds.

Ironic, Wladimir Klitschko fan berates a fighter for having a weak chin...

By heavyweight standards this is a really good fight, could swing either way imo but im backing Mitchell to get it done.
