Broner vs Malignaggi to feature Banks-Mitchell rematch on undercard

Nadine Rupp

The June 22 Showtime boxing card headlined by Adrien Broner vs Paulie Malignaggi will also feature the heavyweight rematch between Johnathon Banks and Seth Mitchell.

Johnathon Banks and Seth Mitchell have a new date for their rematch, as the two heavyweights will collide again on June 22, as the Showtime co-feature to the Broner-Malignaggi main event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Richard Schaefer tells BoxingScene.com that there will be a third fight, but he's still working on that and can't announce anything just yet.

Banks (29-1-1, 19 KO) stopped Mitchell (25-1-1, 19 KO) last November on HBO, getting the hyped prospect and former college football player out in two rounds. Mitchell's team wanted the immediate rematch and exercised their contractual clause, which shows a lot of desire and guts on their part. Banks has been happy to get in there and try to do it again.

The rematch was originally scheduled for the Broner-Rees HBO broadcast in February, but Banks hurt his thumb and had to postpone the date. With Golden Boy now working only with Showtime, the fight has moved to a new network, with the stakes the same for both men.
