Its Showtime folks, literally!
Undefeated heavyweight boxer, Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell, will return to the ring at Buffalo Bill’s Star of the Desert Arena, located within Terrible’s Primm Valley Casino Resorts, in Primm, Nevada. Mitchell will fight May 13th on the televised portion of Showtime’s boxing series, “ShoBox: The New Generation.” The Star of the Desert Arena holds 6,500 seats and is approximately forty miles from downtown Las Vegas. The fight card is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and DeWalt Tools.
Seth Mitchell (Brandywine, Maryland, 21-0-1, 15 KOs) is scheduled to fight against the Nicaraguan boxer, Evans “The Sandman” Quinn (Miami, Florida, 20-5-1, 18 KOs), in a 10-round bout.
Mitchell, a former Maryland high school football All-American and Michigan State University football standout, has knocked out eight of his last nine opponents. On March 5, 2011, he defeated Charles Davis by TKO in 1:02 of Round 2. Mitchell dominated Davis in the scheduled 10-round bout, sending his opponent to the canvas four times, before referee Wayne Hedgepeth stopped the fight.
Mitchell said, “I feel I am well-prepared for this fight. I am in great shape and can box ten rounds if I need to. My opponent’s record shows he has good punching power, so I know I will need to have good defense and be ready for anything. This is my first time fighting on Showtime, so I am ready to put on a good show for the fans.”
Mitchell’s boxing trainer, Andre Hunter said, “For this fight, we worked on being prepared for any style that his opponent may bring. This fight is like every other fight, because you have to put the work in for any opponent they put in front of you. I’m excited that a large television audience will tune in for the fight.”
Mitchell’s boxing manager, Sharif Salim, said, “Evans Quinn is a very credible and formidable opponent. He has 20 wins, with 18 of them coming by knockout. After viewing him, I was impressed with his athleticism, movement and hand speed. The styles of both fighters will create an exciting fight on Showtime. If styles make fights, then this is one fight you will want to see.”
