September 29th, 1990. Highly skilled albeit highly underrated South African boxing legend Brian Mitchell aka “Road Warrior” makes the 11th defense of his WBA World Super Featherweight Championship against undefeated Frankie Mitchell, who was fighting in his 1st world title shot as well as in his 1st bout outside of the United States.

At this time, Frankie Mitchell was a top contender ranked No. 7 by the IBF, No. 5 by the WBA & No. 4 by the WBC.

Brian Mitchell is one of the Greatest South African Fighters of All Time along the likes of Baby Jake Matlala, Dingaan Thobela, Harold Volbrecht, Welcome Ncita, Willie Toweel, Vic Toweel, Vuyangi Bungu, Gerrie Coetzee, Zolani Tete, Hekkie Budler etc.

Prefight records; Brian Mitchell 41(20)-1-2, Frankie Mitchell 25(10)-0.

Brian Mitchell’s solitary defeat was a UD10 to Jacob Marake in his 7th pro fight, a loss which he would avenged 3 times. In their 4th encounter, Marake tragically died from injuries sustained from the fight at only 30 years of age.

Back in September 1987, Mitchell scored a sensational TKO10 win over Alfredo Layne to bag the WBA 126 pound title. After that he remarkably defended his title 10 times successfully, going 9(5)-0-1 between March 1987 and 1990.

For his 11th defense, undefeated 31 year old contender Frankie Mitchell was up next.

Going into the fight, Brian Mitchell had notable victories over Mitchell notable wins; Alfredo Layne, Daniel Londas, Danilo Cabrera, Irving Mitchell, Jim McDonnell, Jose Rivera & Jackie Beard (2x).

Both Mitchells put up a highly skilled and competitive bout throughout 36 minutes of action; Frankie did better in the first half while Brian came back stronger in the second, and showed better overall effectiveness to retain his WBA World Super Featherweight Title via UD12 with scores of 117-113 & 116-113 (2x).

Frankie Mitchell was the toughest title defense for the reigning South African World Champion at that time, as he certainly gave a good account of himself.
