Banks Feels He Will KO Mitchell Again, Eyes Adamek

By Giancarlo Oquendo & Rafal Kyc

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…

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…

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