    Mitchell, I think. I don't remember too much about Edwards but I seem to recall him as a slugger type. Mitchell usually boxed the pants off those guys, he had more trouble with the real cute defensive fighters. Mitchell's class of opposition was higher with a single (avenged) loss. Edwards seems more chinny to me. I'd have to look through Edwards' fights for a better breakdown.

    I have to respectfully disagree with you on level of opposition. I believe Boza faced much better fighters overall.

    He did, but he lost to most of the better ones.

    I like Mitchell by close decision here...…...

    I think Mitchell takes it, but I enjoy both and think their styles would mix real well

    I always loved this quote and feel it sums Mitchell up quite nicely:

    Quote: “He was a smart one,” rival Tony Lopez said. “I never thought Mitchell was a great fighter, I never thought much of him, but he was always in shape. He wasn’t fantastic at anything but he was good at everything. I just couldn’t get him. Something about his style just threw me off.”

    Yeah, I’m a bit shocked that happened - no idea why. A real shame.

    Brian Mitchell is a guy I haven’t spent much time watching. I love Boza though and he fought during a terrific and incredibly entertaining era of jnr lightweights. Tough fighter who had nothing but tough fights between 130 and 135 pounds. Some of the world champs he fought:
    Alexis Arguello
    Rafael Limon
    Bobby Chacon (twice)
    Rolando Navarette
    Rocky Lockridge
    Hector Camacho
    Jose Luis Ramirez
