  1. Really good fight.
    Ending doesn’t tell the story. Without the cut I believe Mitchell would have won. Definite rematch worthy.

    1. What a fight! The 5th round was amazing.
      It was quite an upset until the stoppage!…
      Best fight of the weekend: 4-stars.

    1. You mean … taking a knockdown, being dominated for the 3/4 of the fight, and then, after a dozen of headbutts have destroyed his opponents face to a point that he can barely see, go for the knockout ? ;)

      1. Im guessing your a km fan lam 2 but in km’s last fight he dominated like if or not in this fight he ran out off gas in the 9th.
        Head butts..? Come on they looked like crisp rights to me, anyway l’ll wager you in the rematch if your up for it?

        1. Haha! I’m not a Kevin Mtchell’s fan at all, though I thought he fought really well until the 9th indeed. My point was that saying “champion did what champions do” is somewhat a false confimatory logic, like saying: “the winnner did what winners do, and that is to win”.

          1. And about the headbutts, you’re right, I exagerated. The clash of heads was acccidental and Linares landed many powerful punches after that. That’s part of boxing.

          2. Point taken, nice fight l’d like to see a rematch…
            I hope Keven gets a belt, he’s going to struggle to get this guys though…

  2. Good fight and good knock downs in the 5th and 10th rounds. The referee was right stopping the fight however I believe that Linares was able to put Mitchell down for good in the following round.
