Lipinets: Me and Ortiz Went To War in Camp, He'll Beat Berto

LOS ANGELES, CA - Russia's undefeated super-lightweight prospect, Sergey Lipinets (9-0, 7 KOs), is adapting well to his surrounding here in the United States.  Born in Martuk, Kazakhstan but fighting out of Southern California where he now resides, Lipinets is getting great work with top notch fighters, one being Victor Ortiz.
 
Lipinets spent quality time in camp with Ortiz, helping him get ready for his highly publicized rematch with Andre Berto, taking place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California this Saturday.
 
"During his training camp for Berto, Victor and I went to war," said Sergey Lipinets. "Right now I feel Ortiz is fighting at a high level and I feel he's going to come out on top in the rematch.  I gave him some great looks that I know is going to be beneficial to his game plan.  Sparring with Ortiz was a great experience for me and I feel confident I can become a world champion in the near future."

In his last outing Lipinets scored an impressive fifth-round knockout against Levan Ghvamichava (16-2-1, 12 KOs), a 10-round main event that was nationally televised on FOX Sports 1.  With only nine fights under his belt, Lipinets is gaining much respect within the boxing community.
 
"After sparring sessions, coaches often come up to me and give me words of encouragement." Lipinets continued. "They tell me I have what it takes to become a world champion.  The respect I'm getting from the inner circles of the boxing community is very flattering.  I know with hard work...all my dreams will come true."
