Brandywine, MD heavyweight Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell will get an opportunity to prove that what happened last November was a fluke. Mitchell will get a rematch with Detroit, MI's Johnathon Banks on Saturday, February 16 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The scheduled 12-round bout will be the co-feature to Adrian Broner's WBC Lightweight championship defense against former WBA Junior Lightweight titleholder Gavin Rees. The doubleheader will be televised by HBO.
Boardwalk Hall has not been the kindest of venues for Mitchell (25-1-1, 19 KO's). Banks stopped Mitchell in the second round on November 17. Prior to that bout, Chazz Witherspoon rocked Mitchell in the first round back in April before Mitchell stopped Witherspoon in the third round.
Banks (29-1-1, 19 KO's) is unbeaten in his last 10 fights since moving up to heavyweight after being stopped by Tomasz Adamek in the eighth round in a bid for the IBF Cruiserweight title. Both the NABO Heavyweight and WBC International titles that Banks won in the first bout with Mitchell are slated to be on the line again.
