Sergey Lipinets To Return on Thurman vs. Garcia Undercard

By Steve Kim

According to manager Alex Vaysfeld, who handles the career of junior welterweight contender Sergey Lipinets, his boxer will be returning to the ring in a couple of weeks.

The dangerous puncher will return on March 4th, as part of the undercard to the big welterweight unification between Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"He's fighting March 4th on the undercard of Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia. He's fighting Clarence Booth," said Vaysfeld to


The hard-hitting Lipinets (11-0, 9KO's) last fought on December 10th at the Galen Center on the campus of USC where he stopped the rugged Lenny Zappavigna in eight.

Currently Lipinets is the top rated challenger in the IBF, who's belt is held by Julius Idongo. In April, Indongo - who also holds the IBO title - will collide with WBA champion Ricky Burns in a unification clash. The winner will be obligated to fight Lipinets next or face the possibility of being stripped.

Vaysfeld confirmed the IBF's position to - "He's the mandatory for the winner of Indongo and Burns."

But first things first, Lipinents has to get past Booth.

"We're not looking past anybody," promised Vaysfeld.

[QUOTE=Clegg;17439979]I hope you're wrong but most likely that happens especially if Burns wins. Lipinets is quality.[/QUOTE] Lipinets would absolutely obliterate Burns.
