As of today(30 Aug 2013) Seth Mitchell is the number one ranking heavyweight in USA by Boxrec.com but most people here think he will get easily beaten.???

Tark?!? Really?!? You are seriously gonna compare Wilder’s untested worry free fight chin to a tried and true Granite, best of the best, Vitali Klitschko beard? Bro, your reputation has plunged to new depths!

TARK

As far as Mitchell having a soft chin? All those helmet to helmet collisions with people weighing 250 don’t do your chin a lot of good.

American Football needs a better helmet design—to prevent all the damage to top defensive players—who have the speed and strength to smash through blockers and bring down the ball carrier—suffer. That was Seth’s forte so opponents put their fastest as strongest blockers on him. He got kneecapped a few times as well—that ended his football career.

Ken Norton had a weak chin. I saw 188-pound Jose Luis Garcia knock him cold with one shot. A weak chin can be overcome with a masterful defense. I used to tell novice boxers to practice defense 3 hours a day. The more punches you make your foes miss, the more frustrated they get, the more desperate they get to land something, the more opportunities you have to hit them with an easy counters. Having great weapons is a key—and it’s the sexy part of boxing—having a great defense is more difficult but wins fights.

What happens if Chris lands on Wilder??? About the same thing that happened when Chris landed on Vitali.

All 5 times.

Deontay Wilder will not fight Arreola. Tark, you say wilder will bust Arreola’s head like a cantelope….what happens if Cris lands clean on Wilder. Actually no need to answer as that was rhetorical. The answer is that we have NO IDEA because he hasn’t been clocked yet, let alone by a legit fighter with a pulse. I have heard through the grapevine though that there is a real good reason(on purpose) why he is being brought along so extremely slowly in terms of competition. Wanna take a guess?!?!?!?

If you want a laugh just youtube Wilder vs Dustin Nicholls.

Nicholls looks like a 350lb meatball someone rolled through a pile of pubes.
He`s like someone put a bicycle pump up an ewoks @rse and pumped it up to the size of a hippo.

And he is actually timing, and countering Wilder with left hooks. Beats him to the jab at times.
Wilder gets so scrappy he flails across the ring like an epileptic pigeon on a ice rink.

And this is against a guy who gets out of breath just lifting his eyelids.

Wilder has a right hand, and that’s it. He`d be fine if the sport was “Trade right hands till someone falls over”, but it isn`t. It`s called boxing.

And he can`t box.

He just tried to get a Chisora fight… Chisora is a recent title challenger… He settled for Sergie Liakhovich, who’s a former world champion, but I don’t think is going to do a lot for him — but good fighters are avoiding him … He’s trying to get Jennings too — which may be a mistake.

I think Jennings beats him.

A better matchup for Mitchell would have been someone like Malik Scott, who cant punch and wilts after 4 or 5 rounds. Tony Thompson is still the best heavy in the USA at 41. Wilder is likely to go the same way as Mitchell, Scott, Hanks, Hamer, Banks etc as soon as he fights someone who can take a shot and hit back. Arreola woyld almost certainly beat Wilder too, just for the fact he can take a shot and hit hard, and Wilder, like Mitchell, has poor skills and a poor defence.

Arreola would be so much more effective if he was allowed to actually eat the ring. Just chow down on that canvas so his opponent has nowhere to move to. His corner could throw Jalapenos and Tecate all over the ring and Chris would be in heaven. You`d have to electrify the ringposts to stop him eating them too.

The Banks Mitchell rematch was utterly pathetic and I like Banks. I picked him to win the first fight because it epitomized the massive misunderstanding of the division. Banks is better than Mitchell as a boxer period. Mitchell is nothing. He cried his eyes out after beating Witherspoon???? Nothing more needs to be said about his mental toughness and ability to be a champion. Banks was utterly awful in the rematch. Mitchell looked horrible also. Every single time he was touched he was nearly knocked out. HBO made a mockery of themselves in their coverage of this fighter. Was it their suggestion for Mitchell to wear trunks and shoes which looked like Iron Mike’s? Talk about going for aesthetics over substance. If only Arreola looked like Mitchell then you would have a fighter marketable around the world!

Posted August 4, 2013 11:45 pm 


TARK

The problem with Mitchell is he scored 10 quick KOs before he fought Banks.. You can’t go into a fight against a contender with a KO mentality. Contenders are ranked for a reason.. They’ve never been stopped for a reason.. They can usually defend a little and punch hard.

You have to be willing to go 12 hard ones, and Seth never adjusted to that idea until he fought Banks… Now he knows better than to try and run everyone over.

Posted August 4, 2013 11:09 pm

Banks lost the rematch by not punching, lucky for Mitchell. Seth is a good kid but his boxing days are numbered…

CA is much more sound agaisnt much better opposition. Seth has fought average fighters AT BEST. He freezes when e gets tagged, ever see Arreola do that? Arreola has been boxing since his eary teens. you’re telling me that my eyes and arreolas experience are decieving me? Besides, chin comparison can’t even be debated. Seth has little to no chance whatsoever of winning against Cris Arreola.

Posted August 4, 2013 10:39 pm 


BUSTAJAY

Bottom line here my brothers is Seth is doing a suicide mission with big Chris. He may be fat, he may be slow, but he has a chin like rock and hands of stone that Seth should avoid….HBO is retarded

Posted August 4, 2013 10:37 pm 


TARK

The1…. “Mitchell fights very raw in a tough man contest way.”

If Seth fought like that he would never be able to beat a 32-1 contender like Jonathon Banks… You never see anyone in a toughman contest fight with anywhere near the skills of Seth Mitchell. He has a nice jab already… He has pretty fair timing on his right counter… He definitely needs tons of work on his stance, footwork, clinching, and defense. He had a late start.

But he’s ahead of Arreola in a technical sense… Obviously if he allows the fight to become a brawl it won’t be cool. But he punches so hard with such little effort that Chris might just cooperate and box—like he did when he fought Adamek—who is obviously a better fighter than Seth at this point.

If it were me, I’d match Mitchell v Boytsov and Tua first — then Arreola.

Arreola might be fat…and sometimes don’t take his career like he should. On that note…He can bang and can take a very good shot. Unless Arreola is well past his prime, Seth is going to have to box him and move..or it will be a KO Night and a win for Arreola

I agree, that shot Chris was nailed with was huge. Seth is a good athlete, but Arreola is a good fighter. There is a difference and it will show on Sept 6…

Bill Patrice Jones

What the hell is Mitchell thinking? There aren’t a vast amount of big punchers in the division with good chins but Arreola is one of them. He is going to bulldoze Mitchell in double quick time. This will NOT be anything more than a cakewalk for the Nightmare. It will not be a particularly good indicator of where he’s at right now. That punch Arreola was hit with in round three against Stiverne would without doubt have badly knocked out almost anyone in the top 10. Chris got up and went the distance with a badly broken nose. He’s one tough and fearless warrior. He will steam right in against Mitchell. First combination that lands sees Mitchell hurt or down. They always seem to give Mitchell the benefit of the doubt way more than the average heavyweight when he gets tagged. So expect him to hit the canvas multiple times and be waved off within 3 rounds tops.

hookoffthejab: Name some major D-I or pro football players that went on to become champions in pro boxing. Name one bodybuilder or power-lifter than went on to become a champion in pro boxing.

Tyson is very poor example because he never played football, and didn’t lift super heavy weights for years on end, like a power-lifter or bodybuilder. I am almost the exact height and weight as prime Tyson, but have a much bigger chest, bigger arms, bigger calves, etc. And I also have a much smaller bone structure than Tyson.

Many people, including me, believe that Tyson actually hurt his career when he started spending too much time in the weight room doing heavy power-lifting type exercises. He lost range of motion, flexibility, fluidity, and some speed. Do you really think the Klitchskos of Lewis did much heavy weight-training? The answer to that question is: NO they didn’t.

It’s definitely true that too much muscle mass negatively impacts the ability to box effectively, stamina etc..

Tavoris Cloud, bodybuilder physique, horrible punching technique and stamina, bodybuilder types also seem to always have chin issues. Jeff Lacy, bodybuilder physique, horrible technique and stamina., poor chin etc…

ALL the above is a load of POOP your telling me by looking at a person and their build you can tell that they will be slow etc ..? Mike Tyson comes to mind … (horrible punching technique and stamina, bodybuilder types also seem to always have chin issues) <<<This has nothing to with athlete preparation ..(horrible punching technique and stamina)<<< This is all related to SKILLS and the training that pertains too learning and developing motor engrams IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH STRENGTH or the development of that condition ….Just more ignorance form someone who has never been there or played a role in getting someone to the top of there profession

I fully understand Mitchell’s limitations because I had the exact same limitations in the ring. Accept I had a much better chin than Seth — which is actually going to turn out to be his biggest problem.

You’ll see after he gets stopped by Arreola and just about anyone else in the top ten. And I will remember you’re name and make you eat your words.

You posted those exact words before … Do you have that saved somewhere ? Ready to be copy & pasted ………( about his muscles and that is incorrect anyhow )”As a former college football player (Linebacker) he’s carrying too much muscle mass, which restricts his punching range-of-motion and fluidity; limits the speed of overall movement; and undermined his stamina. (The heart has to work so much harder to supply O2 to all that muscle, so he’s likely to really slow down and gas-out in the middle and late rounds. He looked like he was wearing “lead shoes” in the late rounds vs. Banks.)” How does his muscle restrict his range of motion ? And how does it limit his overall speed ?The heart is a MUSCLE train it correctly and you will have the “necessary” fitness ..All that stuff you refer to are MYTHS ….If Mitchell trains for 12 or 10 rounds he should be ok The training needss to be specific to the task …

Posted August 4, 2013 2:13 am 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

Mitchell has a few different serious problems that will prevent him from becoming a real contender at HW:

1) He has a weak chin and can’t take many hard shots without getting wobbled, hurt and/or stopped.

2) As a former college football player (Linebacker) he’s carrying too much muscle mass, which restricts his punching range-of-motion and fluidity; limits the speed of overall movement; and undermined his stamina. (The heart has to work so much harder to supply O2 to all that muscle, so he’s likely to really slow down and gas-out in the middle and late rounds. He looked like he was wearing “lead shoes” in the late rounds vs. Banks.)

3) He got a LATE start in boxing and is still learning basic fundamentals and technique. Because of his age (31) his trainers have probably been moving him along quicker and pitting him vs. stiffer competition that he’s ready for. Banks beat him the first time, and could’ve and should’ve beat him again.

Although Arreola is never going to be top contender — especially after that loss to Stiverne, he’s still too much for Seth. Cristobal has a good chin, a lot of heart and some decent power. Even an out-of-shape, fat Arreola will more than likely knock Mitchell out. There’s just nothing that can be done to fix his fragile jaw. And if he get KO’d in this fight, fans are gonna start calling it a “glass jaw.” Real talk.

Arreola??? He was pretty much satisified with banking a few million after his Vitali fight. It’s pretty tough to get up at 5AM and run five miles when you don’t have to. Something more than money has to be your chief motivation and drive. Winning at all costs must be your guiding principle. Winning has to be a deeply embedded attitude and Chris never quite got there.

How many fights does Mitchell have and how many years has he been conscientiously learning how to box??? 6 or 7 years??? Seth certainly knows more about Boxing by now than he ever learned about football.

But it’s not just the years you put in.. It’s who’s teaching you.. A boxing coach can only teach you what he knows. If you have 27 professional fights you should have learned how to clinch a long time ago.. That’s so basic.. However Wladimir didn’t learn how to clinch effectively until he had like 45 fights and had been with Steward for a couple years.

Most boxers teach themselves how to fight through trial and error, because they don’t have a real knowledgeable trainer.

If arreola would ever dedicate himself to conditioning he could potentially be world champ. He has an iron chin, big heart, and great power. But he will gas out when forced to fight a fast pace. He needs a conditioning coach and nutritionalist asap! Even w that said ill take him over Mitchell

Ridiculous… Mitchell is missing a couple skills. So is Amir Khan. That’s why you fight somebody like Arreola before you fight a Klitschko or David Haye. They will definitelykill you because they have every skill there is. You can’t tie them up very easily. Seth just needs to learn how to grab correctly and he needs another poorly skilled guy.

It should be like Jimmy Young outboxing George Foreman. Young was stopped a couple times in his early career because he didn’t know what the Hell he was doing in there. Arreola is slow enough, crude enough, big enough, and easy enough to pop with jabs — and hard punching enough, and tough enough, and intimidating enough to be a great test.

If Seth can’t whip this big, slow, dumb ox … back to the drawing board… Too bad Manny Steward isn’t around.

Arreola would flatten Mitchell, that’s what you get when you put a half decent fighter against an NFL guy.

No way this fight is fight of the year candidate. This fight will not go 3. Arreola will KO Mitcgell unless Mitchell back pedals all night. Mitchel does not have a good enough chin to be in any fight of the year fights

This is a great action heavywieght slamfest. I think both guys are flawed enough to make it one of the FOY candidates, at least among heavyweight bouts. Mitchell’s chin isn’t strong enough to last the full bout though.

Good job Tark on not committing to a solid prediction. I will be looking for your post after the bout to say you knew the exact outcome as usual…

Arrelola past his best and Mitchell is not very good, just hyped up. Arreola wins this by KO as Seth will struggle with the power

Arreola in a round or two. Mitchell has zero skill and a china chin. Banks was pathetic in the rematch and almost took Mitchell out. Mitchell’s brains trust musy be looking to cash in before he gets ko’d by some bum.

Tark, I just can’t see Mitchell outboxing Arreola. He fights very raw in a tough man contest way. Arreola has better technical skills as well. Mitchell throws heavy punches and loses his balance leaving himself wide open. Literally a “nightmare” (no pun intended) for Mitchell. Arreola has a better chin, more experience professionally and overall and had been in with better opposition including champions. No way Mitchell gets out of the first two rounds and that may even be generous.

If Mitchell wants to be taken seriously then he has to fight guys like arreola. Arreloa may not be the best but he’s an all rounder and can take a punch as well as he can revive one so he is a fighter with no weakness which is bad news for Mitchell as he needs opponents either soft hitting or glass jawed so he can win. However Mitchell is a tremendous athlete and boxing is his second sport and has achieved so much compared to the average boxer ( seeing he is highly ranked in America and world). He has a launchers chance of course but arrelola has nothing that Mitchell can take advantage from so early tko for arreloa. But will be a fun fight well worth watching

Mitchell should out-box Arreola with ease… It should be a one-sided affair… Mitchell could get knocked out if he fought as lamely as he did vs Banks in their first fight.

This is heavyweight Boxing. You either learn how to clinch, which Seth still has a few problems with, as seen in Mitchell-Banks II, or you get KO’d a 2nd time. Wladimir got KO’d 3 times before he went on a 10-year undefeated run with Emmanuel Steward coaching him. Sometimes it takes more than one lesson — and some guys NEVER learn. Joe Frazier couldn’t clinch when he fought George Foreman either time. George was the only 6’3″ X 217 pound puncher Frazier ever fought so it was a brand new experience.

You fight big, tall, powerful punchers without a strong defense and they WILL smack you. You either clinch or get stopped.

Mitchell’s camp is making a huge mistake. He’s about to get beat up, stopped and ruined.

Assyrian is spot on. Mitchell doesn’t have a bad chin, he has no chin. Feather fisted Chaz’s Witherspoon had him on wobbly legs but couldn’t finish h off in the second round. This guy’s only hope is the “puncher’s chance” and Arreola has proven he’s got at the very least a good beard.

A bad match for Mitchell. His team should know this.

Easy KO for Chris, too fast for Seth…

Definately a bad match for Mitchell. Arreola is crude, and only really a second teir heavy, however he had a good chin and a big punch. Cant see Mitchell stopping him, or having the chin, skills or defence to stop Arreola landing at some point. As for Banks, he has no stamina, and often fades out of fights, even those he has won.
