Seth Mitchell def. Johnathon Banks by unanimous decision (115-112, 117-109, 114-112)
When Johnathon Banks and Seth Mitchell first met in a boxing ring, the result was a short, explosive fight, with Banks taking a 2nd round KO win. The rematch was not that fight.
Over the course of 12 increasingly dull rounds, Seth Mitchell managed to outland Banks and take a decision victory to even the series up 1-1. In the early rounds, there was indeed some good action. Round 2 saw the fight's lone knockdown, as Mitchell connected with an uppercut and a questionable punch to the back of the head that dropped Banks. Round 3 saw Banks come back strong, hurt Mitchell badly, and look to be on the verge of a KO win. But unlike the first fight, Mitchell managed to hold on and survive the round.
After that, things slowed down considerably. Banks had a few more moments of hurting Mitchell, but again, he was never able to capitalize, allowing Mitchell to stay in the fight and keep coming back.
In the end, this is the kind of fight where both men lose. Banks loses the momentum gained from the win over Mitchell, and while Mitchell gets back in the win column, this is not a fight that will make anyone eager to see the next Seth Mitchell fight.
