Last night, Mikey Garcia showed the boxing world why he is one of the very best in the sport. He used his systematic boxing game plan to blow away a really good Sergey Lipinets. Garcia has a great Boxing IQ and it was put on display in front of a favoring Freeman Coliseum boxing crowd. Garcia controlled the fight from start to finish as he kept himself in position to fire away on Lipinets at every turn in the fight.
Lipinets had success with his jab during the fight but just could not hit Garcia with anything significant. In the 7th round, Garcia landed a crisp left hook that sent Lipinets to the canvas for the first time in his professional boxing career. Lipinets got up from the left-hook and fought his way out of the 7th. As the fight moved on, Garcia continued to attack at angles and used his patient boxing skills to nullify any hope for Lipinets to get a victory.
The fight would go the scorecards, and Mikey Garcia was awarded the 12th round unanimous decision victory. With the win, Mikey Garcia has now captured professional boxing world titles in 4 different weight classes.
Mikey Garcia just keeps getting better and better. His boxing style is going to give any fighter trouble from 135 to 147. With his win over Sergey Lipinets, Garcia moves up the Potshot Boxing (PSB) Pound 4 Pound List. Boxing World, where is Mikey Garcia on your Pound 4 Pound List? Or has he made your Pound 4 Pound List?
