Fight Pick & Preview - Arreola vs. Mitchell:
On September 6, heavyweight contenders Chris Arreola and Seth Mitchell meet in a pivotal 12-rounder. Simply put, the winner stays viable and the loser gets dirt shoveled on him. It’s an interesting fight with a pair of fighters with a long and contrasting list of strengths and weaknesses. Arreola is coming off an upset defeat at the hands of Bermane Stiverne, while Mitchell was able to avenge his only career defeat with a unanimous decision over Johnathon Banks.
To Mitchell’s credit, he was able to reverse an emphatic result, though his win over Banks in June was as boring as it gets. Whatever mojo Banks carried with him into the ring for their first fight had whooshed out of him by the time the rematch happened. Mitchell did what he needed to do, which was “win today and look good tomorrow.”
