Just wanted to chat about Seth Mitchell and the American heavyweight scene..
This would be my American heavyweight rankings.
#1. Eddie Chambers [38-3, 18 KO wins, 1 KO loss]
#2. Chris Arreola [35-2, 30 KO wins, 1 KO loss]
#3. Steve Cunningham [24-4, 12 KO wins]
#4. Johnathon Banks [28-1-1, 18 KO wins, 1 KO loss]
#5. Seth Mitchell [25-0-1, 19 KO wins]
RE: two missing fighters.. I think Tony Thompson and Michael Grant should retire. Thompson is 40 and Grant is 39.. nothing left to prove and if you stick around at heavyweight you will get hurt.
I think that Chambers won the fight against Adamek and he did it with 1 hand. 'Beating' Adamek is better than anything Arreola has done in 2 years.. also since Steve's next fight will be at Heavyweight, I would rank him below Arreola but above Banks..
So, how do you think Mitchell would do against any of the guys ranked #1-#4?
Any American heavyweight fights with Mitchell you'd like to see that I missed? How do you think they'd go?
I think Seth Mitchell will be the 'next great American heavyweight.' I see some people high on Bryant Jennings or Deontay Wilder. I dunno, I guess I'm not sold yet. I've seen Joe Hanks mentioned occasionally.
PS: Not particularly relevant to Seth Mitchell, but Cunningham, Chambers, and Jennings have all said on Twitter 'we all live in Philadelphia, we all go to the same gyms, we're all friends, we are NEVER fighting each other.'
