IBF Light Welterweight Championship
Last night at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas, undefeated Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 Kos) captured his 4th World Title in the Light Welterweight Division by successfully defeating Sergey Lipinets (13-1, 10 Kos) by unanimous decision for his IBF Title.
Listen, unanimous decision aside your Boy Mikey had himself a real challenger in Sergey Lipnets. This Dude did not go down without a fight. He came out and dished out just as much as he was taking. The Kid got heart and he proved it last night. Although he came up short Lipnets left a great impression of himself inside that squared circle.
That being said congratulations are in order here for Mikey moving up in weight once again and capturing yet another Title. To me this bout was entertaining from start to finish. The betting odds had Mikey as the favorite but truth be told this bout was a lot closer than what the Judges had it. Real Talk! This was by far one of Mikey’s toughest bouts that I’ve seen him in to date.
Mikey is pushing real hard for that No. 1 spot on that Pound-for-Pound list and the way he’s been going at it since his comeback to the Boxing Game, Dude has been making a legitimate claim as to why he should be mentioned on that list. Real Talk!
Mikey is a proven young warrior with a mission of being mentioned as one of the greatest to ever do it. He is determined to take on the best while still remaining undefeated when it’s all said and done.
As it stands right now if he plays his cards right and stays focus at the plan at hand he has a very good chance of fulfilling his destiny.
Can’t wait to see what your next move will be Champ.
