  • Ring Announcer: Jimmy Lennon Jr.
  • Aired On: Showtime
  • Seth Mitchell 25-1-1 (19 KOs) vs. Johnathon Banks 29-1-1 (19 KOs)
  • Fight was on the undercard of Paul Malignaggi vs. Adrien Broner.
  • Mitchell entered as a slight even-money betting underdog. [1]
  • Seven months removed from their first fight, which Banks won by second-round TKO, Mitchell held better this time, used a jab strategy and was not baited into traps.
  • Banks won the punch count. Most of his punches landed in rounds he won.
  • Banks, who had Mitchell in trouble several times, failed to finish him. Without his counterpunch 'Plan A' winning again, Banks had no alternative game plan. Entire rounds passed with Banks hardly trying to throw a punch.
