Default That was no upset!

Banks has 10x the experience Mitchell has.

Add to that Banks' right hand + Mitchells chin you could see that one coming.

Mitchell is dogshit. I have absolutely no clue why anybody thought he was even half decent.

Complete and utter hype job.

Having said this I liked his post-fight attitude, just not his in-fight skills.

I still cant understand how the oddsmakers had Seth as such a big favorite.

We talked about this during Wlads camp.

we talked about seths power but lack of experience, technique and balance... we talked that JB could counter him and hurt him.

Seth throws so hard and roundhouse that if JB leaned back and seth missed, seth would be wide open and off balance......BINGO

What impressed me was JB went for the kill. GREAT JOB.

It was a great display of skills and smarts over brawn and naked aggression.

Congrats to Banks and the whole team.

Very classy post fight interview as well, from both men. Nice to see.

It was an upset because of how hyped Mitchell was when you think about it anyone who isn't really a big fan of the sport probably thought Mitchell would steam through Banks.

I'm just sad that I gave up gambling 3 weeks ago and the odds for Banks by KO almost pulled me back in.

Wow, sounds like everything went according to script. I only really started watching Mitchell with his first HBO fight, against Ibragimov. It seemed apparent to me at that time that Mitchell was a sucker for the right hand, particularly a counter right hand. This was further displayed against Chazz.

I also would think that anyone would have issues taking a good shot when they sort of hang there chin out in front the way Mitchell seems to. David Haye tends to do that as well, but with his speed and footwork he rarely gets hit clean like that.

Does this mean that Mitchell is really done as a serious prospect or is this simply a great learning experience ala Wlad Sanders? Hmm

What next for Banks? Do we take him seriously as a great American contender? Or was he just a perfect opponent to display Mitchell's weakness' in this one particular match-up? The guy is 9-0 at heavyweight now...
