3 division champion, WBC lightweight world champion, California based Mexican/American, Mikey Garcia, puts lightweight defences on hold to compete at light welterweight, and on this occasion, he takes on undefeated IBF world champion, Russia's Sergey Lipinets. The fight takes place at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, the venue, containing a supportive, mostly pro Garcia crowd of fans.

The champion is the one on the front foot, early, but Garcia, very mobile. Garcia scores with all the punches in the fight, takes a clear lead after 2 rounds, Lipinets lands his first decent punches in round 3, blood exits Garcia's nose. As Garcia's opponent takes more chances, he hits him with good, clean punches.

Lipinets makes Garcia uncomfortable in the mid rounds, but he is still countered often, as Garcia tags him consistently. Lipinets struggles for accuracy, but does land some good, hard shots. In round 7, Garcia sets a trap, and as Lipinets comes in, Garcia lands a counter left hook, puts Lipinets down heavily. The champion shows great recuperation in rounds 8 and 9, Lipinets is aggressive, able to land some good shots, and he overpowers Garcia, Garcia takes the punches, and responds with his own.

Lipinets continues to plough forward in the late rounds, but Garcia settles down, and out boxes the champion, Lipinets takes chance after chance, but struggles to find the target, and rather than coasting, Garcia raises his output.

Mikey Garcia is declared a wide winner by all three judges, wins the IBF belt, becoming a 4 weight champion.

Prediction,

This is a good match up.
Mikey Garcia is the favourite, it is about him, maybe more than it is about Lipinets, having said that, Garcia, favourite or not, is the opponent, the challenger, Lipinets is the champion, he deserves that recognition.

I think Lipinets is a good, solid all round fighter, but at this level, I think he is good, but just that, and to say Mikey Garcia is great, might even be an understatement. I might say this is a good fighter vs a great fighter, we don't know how good Lipinets is, we don't know his limitations, but against Garcia, I think he will be proven, not good enough.

Lipinets is undefeated, young, he has a title, he will be in shape, determined, skills, talent, power aside, based on these facts alone, we know this could be a tough fight for Garcia, it is certainly a project, could be a bit of a challenge.

I think Garcia, at his age, is not about taking his time, he wants to get a shift on, get the big fights as soon as possible, but if he can't, he knows he has to be consistent. Garcia will be put to make a statement, but like with his previous fight, he can do that, and also box within his game plan at the same time.

I think throughout, Garcia will simply do everything better than Lipinets, either nick the rounds, or outfight Lipinets, I think he will clearly the bigger puncher, and the counter puncher. I think Lipinets will give it his upmost effort, but will win few if any rounds, and Garcia will stop him at some late stage.

Garcia will win big. Lipinets is not bad from what I have seen, but he had some difficulty and even seemed to get hurt at one point versus Kondo who was essentially a cherry picked opponent, having never fought out of Japan. Garcia is a top pound for pound fighter in the sport and he will show it here, he just has too much depth and skill to his game for Lipinets. Garcia by KO/TKO

Prediction.
Mikey Garcia is mustard, so I see him winning a wide points decision on all the judges' cards.

Champion97's picture

Lipinets is better than I thought!
Garcia won wide, he is a class above I think, but that was harder fight for him than I expected.
I thought Mikey started very well, for 2 rounds, he looked to be doing what he did against Adrien Broner, he was taking his time, he was staying focused, he was mobile, his timing was phenomenal, he landed a scoring shot against Lipinets whenever necessary, but he didn't throw a single shot at the wrong time, and that is hard to do against a fighter like Lipinets, who makes you work.
I think from around about round 4, throughout the rest of the fight, it was very competitive, it wasn't close throughout that time, but for much of that time, it was, Garcia made a bih breakthrough with that fantastic knockdown, but Garcia struggled I think in some of those rounds, I think his nose was a factor, obviously, that restricts your breathing, and Garcia's nose looked broken to me, he certainly has a vulnerability with his nose, blood sparyed everywhere early, and it was just the jab I think.
I was slightly worried for Mikey at times, Lipinets did a great job of attacking the body, waiting for Mikey to be in a static position, he couldn't hurt Garcia, but he was having success. Lipinets should be proud of himself, he did great, certainly did better than I expected him to, he got up off the deck, kept the fight competitive, and only lost because of the calibre of his opponent, no shame in that whatsoever.
I don't think overall, that was the best from Mikey I've seen, I thought he was sloppy at times, I'm not sure if it was simply not his best performance, how much it was about Lipinets being very good, but I certainly think talks of 147 is ridiculous, and Robert will let Mikey nowhere near Spence and Thurman, because as it is, Garcia is competing above his weight class. Without doubt, Mikey's best option is 135, fighting at 147 would be a huge mistake. I hope Garcia's career remainder is at 135. At the right weight, I think Garcia has the talent and the dedication to do what Terence Crawford did at 140, and unify the division, win all the belts.

TheUndefeated's picture

High skill-level fight. I thought Garcia showed clever defense to subtly avoid/block many of Lipinets' punches. Noble effort by a clearly talented Sergey but Garcia on a different level.
