BUSH OR KERRY? WHO CARES? IT'S ALL ABOUT MITCHELL vs. TSZYU! WHO GETS YOUR VOTE?
Election Day on November 2 may determine who will be President of the United States, but November 6 will be the day IBF interim champion SHARMBA MITCHELL and IBF champion KOSTYA TSZYU finally duke it out in their SHOWTIME-televised rematch to determine the TRUE junior welterweight champion of the world!
Tszyu, 30-1 (24 KOs), six years into his second reign as world champion, is riding a seven-year, 12-bout winning streak, with 10 of those victories coming by knockout. Twice, the long-awaited rematch against Mitchell has been postponed by injury. Can the 35-year-old world champion who last fought on January 19, 2003, come back and successfully defend his title?
Mitchell, 55-3 (30 KOs), who held the WBA super lightweight title from 1998-2001, before losing it via a knee injury to Tszyu, has reeled off eight straight victories since returning to the ring in 2002. Activity seems to agree with Mitchell, this will be his fourth fight of the year, the most he has fought since 1995. But has he learned the lessons required to beat the last man to hold the undisputed world title?
So who gets your vote?
