Heavyweight fighter Johnathon Banks (29-1-1, 19 KOs), who last November knocked out Seth Mitchell (25-1-1, 19 KOs) in the second round of a major upset, believes the rematch with Mitchell on the 16th of February can end by knockout in a similar fashion as the first fight. Banks stripped Mitchell of his undefeated record and now holds both the NABO title and WBC International crown.

"I'm not sure [how the rematch will play out] .. But I think this will end in the same way," expressed Banks to mrboxingtab.com/BoxingScene.com.

"Right now I'm focused 100% percent on this challenge, and then I will think about what I plan to do next. People ask me about a fight with Wladimir [Klitschko], but frankly it's hard for me to imagine that [Banks trains Wladimir]."

Banks vs. Mitchell II will be part of the HBO televised card featuring WBO lightweight champion Adrien Broner in Atlantic City.

Banks is also very interested in a rematch with Tomasz Adamek, who stopped Banks at the cruiserweight limit in 2009.

"I saw Adamek's fight with [Steve] Cunningham, it was very exciting, a good fight. I hope that someday we'll have a rematch with Tomasz, but at heavyweight," Banks said.

Seth cannot beat the likes of a johnathan banks - period ! Seth has done well for himself, but Banks has been boxing on a competitive level since Mitchell was beginning his football from sand box . Banks only lost to Adamek (very good boxer) and was winning the fight. Banks knows the philosophy ...

i like mitchell, but man i wouldn't have advised him on taking this immediate rematch. i remember him pointing out his flaws against witherspoon and saying we were going to see a more improved mitchell going into the first banks fight. that obviously wasn't the case. i honestly don't think he fix...

People are writing off Seth too quick IMO. Before he got hurt and knocked out, he was mounting a nice body attack for himself, and he was hurting Banks. His chin is definitely not sensational, but neither is Banks' chin. I think a more disciplined and focused Seth will knock Banks out in t...

I'm curious to see how Mitchell does in this rematch eventhough he'll lose again.
