Well, our crawler script (running in loop) validates that each mirror is
reachable and also having actual content (for repodata as an example).
So I verified for that host, and was able to connect to that mirror (and
fetch the repodata file) from multiple locations in .US and .EU (even if
it's slow)

The fact that you have "connection refused" is something else and not
related to the mirror not being up2date/current :  we don't know if :
- you have firewall rules in place between your node and that mirror
restricting outbound access
- there are firewall rules on that mirror node/network that prevent some
subnets to reach it
