BATB has learned that the next bout for Brandywine, MD heavyweight Seth "Mayhem" Mitchell will be a 12-round contest against Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola of Escondido, CA on Friday, September 6 at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA. The bout will be shown on a special Friday edition of Showtime Championship Boxing.
No word on if Mitchell (26-1-1, 19 KO's) will defend his NABO or WBC International titles that he won in his last outing -- a 12-round unanimous decision win over Johnathon Banks on June 22 in Brooklyn, NY. Arreola (35-3, 30 KO's) will try to bounce back from his 12-round unanimous decision loss to Bermane Stiverne on April 27 in Ontario, CA. Arreola suffered a broken nose in that contest but says his nose is just fine now.
Mitchell is ranked number two by the WBC, Arreola is ranked third and lost to Stiverne who is ranked number one.
