I live in Ottawa, Clayton trains at my gym. He was a tremendous amateur but won’t do much as a pro.

Lipinets should drop to 140

The BEST sleep aid around, Showtime Boxing and their commentating team, for sure to help get a full night of sleep. It's a D A M N SHAME Lipinets-Clayton qualify for Interim title!!!

Solid fight, but they are both gatekeepers at best, not a champion material at all, Shawn Porter beats them both.

I think it just makes you slow and robotic with all that muscle and your career will suffer due to it. Sergy will have some good fights but at welterweight ain’t nothing no one scared; of what?
