Can Seth Mitchell Survive Chris Arreola’s Power?

Seth Mitchell managed to cautiously labor his way to a tentative 12 round points win during his June rematch with Johnathon Banks. There were a few shaky moments for Mitchell early when it looked like Banks had him ready to go again, but a repeat of the upset KO from their first match was not to be this time around.

Can Mitchell employ similar tactics this Saturday to be successful when he faces Chris Arreola?

Probably not. Continue reading

Canelo is more famous for being famous than for having accomplished anything special during his career. Continue reading
