Mitchell to Face Banks (Finally) November 17 in Atlantic City!

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.
