Mitchell not deterred by loss!

35-year-old former two-time world champion Byron “Gator” Mitchell (27-5-1, 20 KOs) says his comeback won’t be derailed by one setback. Mitchell took a short-notice chance at a quick bump in the world ratings and paid for it over the weekend by suffering his fifth career loss to undefeated Kazakhstan native Beibut Shumenov at the Stadium Khadjimukan in Chimkent, Kazakhstan, via TKO 4. “We weren’t really in the gym, but we got the call and decided to give it a shot,” explained the disappointed Mitchell, who took the Shumenov matchup on 48 hours notice, flew 27 hours and landed on the day of the fight at 9 am. Mitchell was then forced to drop some weight pre-fight. “I take nothing away from this kid Shumenov, he fought well. But that wasn’t the real Gator in there. I’d like to face him again under more even circumstances.”
