Evaluating Whether Seth Mitchell is Ready to Face Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko
Seth Mitchell is considered by many to be the USA’s most viable heavyweight contender. He is at the very least its most visible heavyweight, having already twice appeared on HBO Boxing After Dark telecasts. He is 6’2” with a reach of 76-inches and 30 years of age. He only took up boxing in 2006 and had a brief 10-fight amateur career.
Before taking up boxing, “Mayhem” was a star linebacker for Michigan State until injuries brought an end to a promising career. Now 25-0-1 (19 KOs), Mitchell is moving toward bigger things. A sign that he is committed is his weight. The well-conditioned and athletic Mitchell has been 240-245 for the last 13 fights.
