Lipinets' Manager Prefers Porter or Abdukakhorov Next, Not Clayton

Alex Vaysfeld, the manager of former world champion Sergey Lipinets, is not in favor of a second fight with unbeaten Canadian Custio Clayton.

On Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun, Lipinets and Clayton fought to a close twelve round majority draw, with the IBF's interim-welterweight title remaining vacant.

Two judges scored 114-114 for the draw, with 115-113 for Clayton.

Clayton was a late replacement for Kudratillo Abdukakhorov, who was unable to move forward with the fight due to visa issues.

Weisfeld would rather see his boxer face other opponents, like Abdukakhorov or former IBF/WBC champion Shawn Porter. 

"I did not agree with the decision of the judges. The opponent ran away and he did not fight. Yes, this was not the best performance of Sergey. Still, this was coming off a long period downtime [of 15 months], a change of opponent ... We didn't know for sure who the opponent would be. Let's not look for an explanation, Sergey won this fight! And everyone is convinced of this, but Sergey was not given the victory," Vaysfeld told Vasiliy Konov. 

"There is no point in rematch with Clayton, so why talk about it? Who wants to see more of this running around? I think Sergei will hold the next fight in February. Kudratillo Abdukakhorov could be the opponent, and I also want Shawn Porter."

Lipinets was very surprised by the scores, as he was convinced of his victory over Clayton.

"I am very dissatisfied with myself - I did not fulfill the plan, I did not work as I should have, I did not carry out the combinations, I did not move well on my legs. For some reason, there was a feeling that my hands were stiff. But I think I won fight - about eight rounds were mine. I was very surprised by the scores. I was doing the fighting," Lipinets said. 

“Clayton surprised us with his speed, he is a smart guy, he has a quick jab. We thought he would be heavier and would come forward to fight, but he started running from me. I hope I will have another fight in three or four months. I had a long period of downtime, changing opponents, changing the dates.... it still affects the preparation. I hope that they will give me a good opponent."

Make Kadratillo vs Porter for the interim belt. Lipinets's manager should make him take the rematch, its a good chance to fix his weakness against this stylist.

Porter beats Lipinets. I just dont see Lipinets beating any of the top names at welterweight

I wouldn’t rematch Clayton either if I were as limited as Lipinets is.

Abdukakhorov should just get his shot at Spence ordered after the Garcia fight. He earned it and was bad luck/coronatime with the visa issues. If Spence wants to go in another direction and vacate then 4 man tourney for the…

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20839523]IBF will likely order Abdukakhorov - Lipinets, because they are ranked 1. and 2.[/QUOTE]IBF now has Porter #2, and Lipinets #3. Kudratillo (don't known his proper last name) is now #1! I don't understand the IBF rankings? They have Maurice…
