Mitchell-Banks Rematch Postponed!

The Ring's Lem Satterfield is reporting that the heavyweight rematch between Brandywine, MD's Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell and Detroit, MI's Johnathon Banks slated for Saturday, February 16 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ has been postponed.  Banks suffered a thumb injury in sparring.

Mitchell was looking to avenge his second-round knockout loss to Banks on November 17 at Boardwalk Hall.  The HBO-televised card will continue as this bout was a co-feature to Adrian Broner's WBC lightweight title bout against Gavin Rees.  Another contest on the card will move up to the co-feature slot.

UPDATE BATB spoke to Mitchell's manager, Sharif Salim this evening.  The Mitchell camp is looking at possible high-profile opponents to stay on the February 16th card.

"Seth is in great shape and we don't want all the hard work to go for naught," Salim told BATB.  "We are still looking at possible challenges for the 16th."
