LaRon Mitchell vs. Scott Alexander Set For October 21

ORANGE, Calif. - Heavyweights LaRon Mitchell and Scott Alexander are scheduled to fight for a title (TBD) on Thompson Boxing Promotions' "Path to Glory" main event on Friday, Oct. 21.
 
The 10-round championship fight will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.
 
Mitchell (14-0, 13 KOs) is a rising talent in the heavyweight division. His first thirteen scores came by knockout and his latest win, a hard fought unanimous decision over Mario Heredia in August, was a solid test for the San Francisco native.

Mitchell faces another tough obstacle in Alexander (12-1-2, 6 KOs), who also fought in August on the same Thompson Boxing card as Mitchell. Alexander used his length and speed to side step Sergio Ramirez by technical decision.
 
"This fight pits two up-and-coming heavyweights against one another," said Alex Camponovo, matchmaker and general manager at Thompson Boxing. "Mitchell has power in either hand, and Alexander knows how to use his jab to control the fight."
 
"I'm looking forward to the challenge," said Mitchell, who trains in San Francisco under Jimmy Ford. "He's dangerous in a lot of ways, but so am I. That it's for a championship only adds to the intrigue. Fans are going to get an explosive fight."
 
"These are the types of fights that we want," said Alexander, who trains with Henry Ramirez in the Los Angeles area. "We are in the gym training non-stop to get ready for Mitchell."
 
Additional details on the "Path to Glory" fight card will be announced at a later date.

"Path to Glory" is presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions and sponsored by Lucas Oil, in association with Everlast.
