Both Gyms are located in the Bronx, New York.Mitchell began his career in 1981 and in 1989 captured the Newly Created and vacant WBO super bantamweight title with a win over Julio Gervacio by decision. He defended the belt once before losing it to Valerio Nati in later in 1989 by disqualification. In the bout, Mitchell was DQ'ed for illegal use of his head. The result was initially listed as a technical decision for Nati amidst a lot of controversy, but finally ended up being ruled a DQ. Mitchell retired in 1995 after being knocked out by Erik Morales.
