Making his fifth defence, Mitchell (128¾) took on an old rival in Rivera (129¼), who got off to a good start when he floored the champion with a big right hand in the second. However, unable to follow up his advantage, Rivera allowed Mitchell to take a grip of proceedings and the tough South African, punching solidly with both hands to head and body, went up a few gears to win handily.
