This is a much anticipated Super Middleweight unification bout between IBF champ Sven Ottke and WBA champ Byron Mitchell. Many critics have long complained that Ottke sits over in Europe and doesn't fight the top competition, well Ottke will try to silence those critics Saturday night. Ottke, a skilled boxer with a soft punch, has been a world champion for over 4 years and has successfully defended his title an amazing 16 times. Mitchell, known for his power, has been inactive as of late only fighting once in the past 18 months. Taking that into account, plus the fact the fight is taking place in Ottke's hometown, BoxingGurus.com see Ottke unifying the titles and coming out victorious. Ottke will use his much superior boxing skills to frustrate Mitchell and use his slick defense to stay away from Mitchell's power shots. Ottke might get knocked to the canvas, but he will be able to build up enough points, that if he is able to make it through the fight, he should win an easy decision.

BoxingGurus.com Prediction:             Ottke by unanimous decision
