Undefeated Brandywine, MD heavyweight Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell announced on his Facebook page that he will be facing Chazz "The Gentleman" Witherspoon of Paulsboro, NJ on Saturday, April 28 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
The bout will be a 10-round co-feature bout on the Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson rematch and will be televised by HBO, marking Mitchell's second straight appearance on the network. Mitchell (24-0-1, 18 KO's) is coming off a solid second-round TKO win over Timur Ibragimov on the Capital Showdown card at the Washington Convention Center. Mitchell has knocked out his last nine opponents.
Witherspoon (30-2, 22 KO's) has won his last four bouts by stoppage since his December 2009 ninth-round TKO loss to Tony Thompson . That bout, ironically, was also at Boardwalk Hall. Witherspoon began his pro career in the Beltway area with his first two bouts scoring knockouts at the Washington Convention Center and Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD. In fact, three of Witherspoon's first eight bouts were in Glen Burnie.
