Mitchell twins fighting mad

LAS VEGAS (February 8, 2006) – The battling Mitchell twins out of Philadelphia, Eric (“Murder”) and Aaron (“Homicide”), are looking for a few good fights in 2006 after recently receiving their promotional freedom. Eric (18-4-1, 9 KOs) is coming off of a sensational first-round knockout of previously unbeaten Rob Dula (15-0-1) a year ago in St. Louis, while Aaron’s (23-1-1, 18 KOs) last fight was a fifth-round stoppage of Carlton Holland 26 months ago in New York City..

“The Mitchell twins against anybody from welterweight to middleweight in the world is like a putting a Rotweiller in against a Poodle,” the Williams’ manager Jim Rider said.

Rated No. 26 by the World Boxing Council, as well as No. 5 by the North American Boxing Association, Eric has won six of his last seven fights, the exception a 10-round loss by decision as a last day replacement against now world junior middleweight champion Ricardo Mayorga. Eric’s most notable victory to date was a 12th round TKO of Ross Thompson (24-4-1) in 2001 for the NABA middleweight title.

Aaron, rated No. 5 by the NABA, is riding an 11-fight win streak, all by knockout, including victims such as Manning Galloway, Miguel Julio, Maurice Adams for the IBC middleweight belt, and Fidel Hernandez. A four-round loss to Keith Mullings in 1993 and controversial 1997 draw with Lloyd Joseph are the only blemishes on Mitchell’s otherwise perfect pro record.

Representatives of worthy opponents only for either of the Mitchell twins may contact Jim Rider (ridebox58@aol.com) or matchmaker John Beninati (match4346@aol.com).
