Photos: Banks Training Hard For The Seth Mitchell Rematch

JOHNATHON BANKS, NABO & WBC International Heavyweight Champion

"I'm very excited to get back in the ring against Seth on June 22.  Boxing is my life and you can see by my smile how I feel.

"The thumb is fine.  No problems at all with it for this camp.

"It's been an easy transition back to boxing from my role as a trainer of Wladimir Klitschko.

"I expect a smarter and very well prepared Seth Mitchell for this rematch.

"[On his birthday falling on June 22] I can't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than in the ring on June 22.

"[On the fan turnout at his open workout at Ecorse High School in Detroit] I'm very active here in a mentoring role at the school and they've been very supportive of me.  It's great to see so many members of the community, family and friends turn out."

Mitchell has one thing - bombs - and you can see that's pretty much it from round 1. Banks will probably take another round or two to catch Mitchell, but this won't end any different than the first time out.

Damn, he looks to be in way better shape for the rematch. Props to Mitchell for taking a rematch, but I think Banks stops him again.
