Undefeated NABO heavyweight Champion Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell held an open workout at The Dream Team Boxing Gym in Clinton, Maryland this past week in preparation for his clash with top contender Johnathon Banks this Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
Mitchell stated to the press: “It would mean a lot to become heavyweight world champion. It remains to be seen, but I am definitely working hard toward that goal. I’m not trying to underestimate anybody, but I am just trying to stay focused and have tunnel vision toward that goal.
Mitchell on his confidence: “A lot of people don’t believe me that the day I decided to box, I knew I was going to be successful in this sport. I believe in myself. I believe that athletics is my gift. The only thing that has surprised me during my career is how quickly I signed with Golden Boy Promotions.
Mitchell on his timetable to fight for the title: “Every fight from here on out is a really big fight for me. I truly believe in the latter part of 2013, I will be ready for my opportunity to fight for the heavyweight world title.
Mitchell on being a contender: “It feels good to be recognized as an American heavyweight. I know why everyone is saying it and it is because of what I am doing in the ring.”
The Seth Mitchell vs. Johnathon Banks showdown is the co-main event for the Adrian Broner vs. Antonio DeMarco WBC lightweight championship bout. Both bouts will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10p ET/PT.. The event is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and R & R Promotions in association with Gary Shaw Productions.
