All the talk this weekend is directed towards Broner v Malignaggi, but whilst everyone's focus remains on this showdown, Boxing fans will be keeping a close eye on the rematch between Johnathon Banks 29-1 and Seth Mitchell 25-1. Going into the last fight many fight fans had Mitchell their favorite to pick up the win, but this was soon blown out the water after Banks showed an incredible performance to stop Mitchell in two rounds. Mitchell, like many other young Heavyweights, shows much promise and is doing everything he can to provide America with the long awaited champion they have been searching for.
Mitchell will of course still be going into this fight with much backing but i think fight fans will take a step back after his last performance at Boardwalk Hall, Banks showed that he has much more to offer in regards to ability, picking off Mitchell and when he had the 31 year old stunned he went after him. A very respected Boxer, Banks currently works with in the Klitschko camp as Wladimir's trainer, and I'm sure both brothers will be enjoying this fight on Saturday night. Both of these men aspire to be the Heavyweight champion and will be using this fight as a next step, Banks who currently sits number 2 on the WBC and WBO rankings is with in touching distance to a shot in the spotlight. Mitchell falls shorter and has a longer journey if he is to reach these heights, but a win on Saturday it will push him into a great position.
