BRIAN MITCHELL
Brian   Mitchell   turned   pro   in   1981   and   captured   the   WBA   and   Lineal   Junior   Lightweight   Title   in 1986   with   a   10th-round   KO   over Alfredo   Layne.   He   defended   the   title   a   record   12   times,   and   never lost   a   title   fight.   In   1991   he   also   captured   the   IBF   Junior   Lightweight   Title   with   a   decision   win   over Tony Lopez (who he'd previously fought to a draw). He   retired   after   the   fight,   and   came   back   briefly   in   1994   for   two   local   bouts,   retiring   completely   in 1995   with   a   professional   record   of   45-1-3,   avenging   his   loss   and   three   draws   in   rematches   and therefore being one of the few champions to beat everyone they faced. Due   to   South   Africa's   apartheid   policy   during   those   times,   the   WBA   ruled   that   Mitchell's   title defences   were   not   to   be   held   in   South Africa.   Mitchell   then   became   a   true   'road   warrior',   defending his title 12 times abroad. He   finished   his   career   with   45   wins,   a   solitary   loss   and   three   draws.   His   12   successful   defences   of the junior–lightweight title remain the record in that division to this day.
