This will be Mitchell's first outing as a 12-round HW contender.

Said Mitchell, I'm not worried about going the distance at all. I'm just excited about this fight. Again, I know Chazz is training hard, so it's just making me train harder. I'm excited. You all should be excited, too."

Of his must-win performance, Witherspoon said, "This is going to be a big night for both of us, but I am going to be the one with my hand raised at the end of the fight."
