Mitchell Plots His World Stage Comeback

Back in May, the East End fighter Kevin Mitchell came so close to becoming the WBC lightweight champion of the world.

Although Mitchell was stopped by Jorge Linares, in the 10th round, only a combination of bad cuts and a few accidental head-butts stopped 30-year-old Mitchell from achieving his dream.

Well now Mitchell is back on the trail of another shot at a world title and the boxer, ranked #4 by the WBC is looking at another world title fight in December.

But first the Mitchell camp are looking at an eliminator bout before Christmas.

Talking about his plans, Mitchell, who has a record that currently reads 39-3 with 29 of those wins coming via knockout, has remarked, via Sky Sports,

“I’m going to be back here on December 12. I’d like to fight a world-class fighter.

“My last three fights have been world class, so I want to stay at world class. I’m hoping for an eliminator and then to fight for a world title in February.”


Now some people may suggest that Mitchell is jumping the queue but like we said earlier he came so close last time out in a fight that not many thought he stood a chance but perhaps it is that defeat that continues to spur him on with Mitchell also remarking,

“I feel like I should have the belt.

“It got stopped for cuts from loads of head-butts. It’s probably the most gutting fight I’ve had in my 20-year career.”


At 30 years of age Mitchell is young enough to come again and we’re hoping that his plans come to fruition.
