Kevin Mitchell stepped into the ring against Daniel Estrada looking like he had been injected with a new lease of life. He boxed better than any other time of his life and showed outstanding upper body movement as well as calculated combinations between footwork that Fred Astaire would be proud of.
Mitchell was not troubled once in the first two rounds, and was throwing punches from all angles, while slipping all the returning shots from Estrada who had significant reach advantage.
In the third round Mitchell floored Estrada with a right hook following a combination, but Estrada fought back bravely catching Mitchell, but not causing him any real concern. It then looked like Mitchell was going to finish business in the third, but Estrada survived the round only to enter the 4th on the back foot with Mitchell continuing to evade any meaningful swinging crosses by Estrada.
