We've said this before but it looks like NABO Heavyweight champion Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell will face Detroit, MI's Johnathon Banks in a nationally-televised (HBO) 12-round contest on Saturday, November 17 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
The NABO title will not be on the line for the undefeated Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KO's) from Brandywine, MD, but the bout is listed as a "WBC Semi-Final Elimination" contest. In the most recent WBC rankings, Banks (28-1-1, 18 KO's) is ranked fourth while Mitchell is seventh.
This is the third time this bout has been scheduled. The first time the bout was postponed after Mitchell suffered a hand injury in his win over Chazz Witherspoon also in Atlantic City. The second postponement took place when another bout slated for the same night was cancelled.
