Mayweather powers past Mitchell, wants the big names next

PORTLAND, Oregon – Floyd Mayweather continued his campaign along the way to greatness with a sixth round stoppage of Sharmba Mitchell in the odd setting of non-boxing town of Portland Saturday night in a non-title welterweight bout scheduled for 12. Mayweather, 35-0 (24 KOs), Las Vegas, Nev., 147, ripped Mitchell, 56-5 (30 KOs), Washington, D.C., 145, from the opening bell, setting a pace that Mitchell could not match and landing punches that he could not answer. Landing straight rights to the head and body of Mitchell, Mayweather patiently stalked the aging southpaw. It was clear from the outset that Mitchell could not settle into his usual outside fight plan. He also did not have the ability to wage the necessary punching war that it would take to pull Mayweather out of his routine of sizing up his prey before seizing and destroying it.
