Our conversation with Johnathon Banks who trains Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir Klitschko fights
2012 - Banks stopped undefeated top contender Seth Mitchell, 25-1-1 (19KO’s), on Saturday, November 17, 2012 in the second round at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on HBO World Championship Boxing.
Dropping Mitchell three times in the second round, referee Eddie Cotton called a halt to the destruction at the 2:37 mark of the second stanza.
Wrote ESPN’s Dan Rafael, “Maybe some things are just meant to be. The script couldn’t have been better written for Banks in his major upset if a screenwriter had taken on the task.
He was supposed to fight Mitchell in July, but the fight was postponed when Mitchell suffered a hand injury in his exciting third-round knockout win against Chazz Witherspoon in April and couldn’t be ready in time.
It was around the time that the fight was postponed that the late Emanuel Steward, the Hall of Fame trainer and HBO announcer, first became ill.
Steward had taken Banks under his wing when he was a 15-year-old amateur. Banks learned to box from Steward, spent time living with him and considered him a father figure. When Steward died in late October, his No. 1 fighter, heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, needed a trainer for his Sept. 10 title defense against Mariusz Wach and he turned to Banks, who had been in Klitschko’s training camps for years with Steward.”
“So Banks was training Klitschko for his eventual win against Wach at the same time that he was preparing to fight Mitchell. While in Klitschko’s camp in Austria, Banks, 30, of Detroit, was doing four training sessions ...
Wladimir Klitschko has successfully defended his undisputed heavyweight championship of the world tonight in Hamburg, Germany. After a tense and entertaining fight, Klitschko knocked Kubrat Pulev out in the fifth round with a sensational left hook.
The fight turned out to be completely different than the usual Klitschko fight. While there was some holding, it didn’t overshadow the fight. Pulev was able to have more success offensively in the fight than most of the champion’s former opponents had. But his offensive style and his unwillingness to keep his hands up played right into Klitschko’s hands.
Pulev started strong. He did a lot of work on the inside and it looked like he stunned the 38-year old Ukranian halfway through the first round. Just as we were figuring out whether Klitschko was hurt or not, the champion landed a crushing left hook sending Pulev to the canvas.

In the main event of the evening, the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Champion of the world. Wladimir Klitschko (63-3 with 54 KOs) entered the ring to one of the loudest roars from a crowd you may ever hear to face the undefeated Bryant Jennings (19-0 with 10 KOs). Over 17 thousand filled the World’s Most Famous Arena at Madison Square Garden to watch Klitschko fight his 1st fight in the US in over seven year.
The biggest fight on the Wladimir Klitschko vs Bryant Jennings card was a battle between two welterweights as Brooklyn’s own Sadam Ali (21-0 with 13 KOs) squared off against Francisco Santana (22-3-1 with 11 KOs) of Santa Barbara, California. It was a non-title bout of two skilled fighters that had average pop, and it was scheduled to go 10 rounds. Anthony Dirrell and Badou Jack headlined tonight’s “PBC” on Spike live from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. Dirrell was defending his WBC super-middleweight title in his 2015 debut against Jack, who was entering the ring two wins removed from his first loss.Tonight’s “PBC” series broadcast came to us live from the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois, and it was aired on Spike TV, their second showing of Al Haymon’s brain child. The co-feature offered up Danny Jacobs defending his paper championship against Caleb Truax, a fighter whose only claim to fame is a scored knockdown against Jermain Taylor in a losing effort and a win against Don George.
