MIKEY GARCIA EARNS WORLD TITLE IN FOURTH DIVISION
By G. Leon

Mikey Garcia UD12 Sergey Lipinets: Mikey Garcia and Sergey Lipinets gave boxing fans a sensational junior welterweight bout tonight. Lipinets, the previously undefeated IBF champion gave everything he had, but fell short against a superb talent in Mikey Garcia. Garcia, 38-0 (30), was in control for the first three rounds, but Lipinets, 13-1 (10) fought with the pride and determination of a world champion and bounced back in rounds four through six, winning at least two of those rounds. In round seven Garcia dropped Lipinets with a brilliant counter left hook second after Lipinets landed his best right hand of the night. Lipinets beat the count and responded surprisingly well in rounds eight and nine. The championship rounds were, for the most part, fought at very close range with both boxers landing powerful counter shots. With the win Garcia has now become a four division world champion and despite the loss Lipinets remains a world class junior welterweight. Official scores were 116-111, 117-110 twice. Boxingtalk scored it 116-111. Source: Showtime
