Kevin Mitchell Targets Burns, Plans To KO Brandon Rios

Kevin Mitchell has promised to win a world title this year after a nightmare 2011.

The Dagenham Destroyer returns to action on Friday 10th February to defend his WBO Intercontinental Lightweight title at London's York Hall.

Unbeaten Irishman Stephen Ormond pulled out of the fight and promoter Frank Warren is looking at a new challenger for Mitchell.

The 28-year-old had well documented problems outside of the ring last year despite his sensational eighth round stoppage win over rival John Murray in July.

Mitchell said, "I was on a downward spiral and could have ended up in prison because of my drinking, but I've had a good kick up the backside and I realise that I want to become a world champion,"

"I lost it last year even though I had a great win over Murray, but I'm looking forward to returning to the York Hall with my home crowd behind me,"

"I'm not a playboy anymore and from now on I'm serious about winning the world title and making plenty of money to secure my future,"

Warren is aiming to get Kevin a world title shot that could see him in a Battle of Britain with Scottish WBO World Champion, possibly a return to West Ham United's ground where he lost to Michael Katsidis in 2010.

Also, Warren has spoken to American promoter Bob Arum about a possible fight with WBA title-holder Brandon Rios who beat Murray in December.

"The obvious fight would be Ricky Burns in the summer with West Ham's ground being an option," said Warren.

"My relationship with Kevin went off the rails towards the end of last year, but I'm delighted to say that we are back on track and we're both working towards the world title,"

"This is about Kevin going back to basics, his problems are behind him now and it's all about moving forward and achieving what I believe he can achieve."

"I'm really disappointed that Ormond pulled out of the fight for whatever reason, he was training for a fight in December that fell through and we lined him up with Kevin so he would have been ready."

Mitchell added, "I'd love Ricky Burns at West Ham which would be an absolute dream to return to the stadium again,"

"Although if Rios was offered to me I'd fancy doing a number on him, in fact I reckon I'd knock him out,"

"To me he's sluggish and one dimensional and if I got him in the ring it would be like a cat playing with a mouse."

What's the point of this guy talking all this crap, Brandon is done at 135 didn't he get a clue in his last fight? if he wants him that bad let him climb up right alone, other wise he needs to STFU and find some one else to fight....

Exactly and Mitchell has only recently came up from Superfeather.

Mitchell has skills to partly expose Rios although you know the juggernaut would get to him eventually.

Acosta could maybe do him in a rematch but I wouldn't put money on it
