ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — In the co-feature Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., Detroit heavyweight Jonathan Banks (29-1-1, 19 KOs) stopped Brandywine, Md., native Seth ‘Mayhem’ Mitchell (25-1-1, 19 KOs) in the second round. Banks dropped the former Michigan State linebacker three times in the second, prompting referee Eddie Cotton to stop the fight at 2:38.

“I could’ve gotten through the round, but the ref did what he had to do,” Mitchell said, according to the The Press of Atlantic City. “I feel OK, he just caught me with a good shot. “I’m really upset, but this won’t spoil my dreams. It will set me back a little, but don’t feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for my next opponent.”
