this would not be an upset. banks is a fringe contender & just vacated the NABF title recently. he's beat a couple decent journeymen at HW. mitchell has the edge but banks also works with the klitschko's on a consistant basis so he's gotten good sparring. mitchell has big power & he's a finisher so there won't be an early stoppage. this is a pretty good matchup but can banks take mitchell's power combinations? banks can crack too so if he catches mitchell like chazz witherspoon did, can he finish him off? this is an intriguing matchup.
