LIPINETS WILTS BOOTH IN BROOKYLN
By Scott Shaffer @ ringside
Sergey Lipinets TKO7 Clarence Booth... Sergey Lipinets continued his climb up the junior welterweight ladder by stopping Florida's Clarence Booth in the seventh round. Lipinets knocked Booth down in the seventh and proceeded to back Booth into a corner. Lipinets rained in punches on the trapped Booth, but Booth kept his guard up and was doing his best to avoid Lipinets' punches when the referee stepped in, perhaps a bit prematurely. Booth protested and the crowd booed, but Lipinets was going to win anyway. Lipinets is now 12-0, while Booth drops to 14-2.
