With only 13 fights, he was able to capture the vacant IBF title against Akihiro Kondo in November, he’s considered an inexperienced professional and although he owns the belt he is a live underdog fighting the challenger.
Will the power of Mikey Garcia prevail as he climbs up yet another weight class or will 140 pounds be too much and the natural junior welterweight Lipinets stops Garcia from achieving his dream of being a 4 weight class champion.

Lipinets doesn’t have the experience at the pro or amateur level that would suggest that he can win this fight. That doesn’t mean Lipinets can’t use his natural size and power to beat Garcia, but it won’t be easy. Lipinets will need to walk through a lot of big shots to cut off the ring on Garcia and wear him down.
Garcia will stay on the move and make it difficult for Lipinets to catch up to him. The 5’7” Lipinets will have a 1-inch height advantage over the 5’6” Garcia, and likely a weight advantage by the time he finishes rehydrating for the fight on Saturday. The size advantage could help Lipinets walk Mikey down and beat him.
The fight takes place at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas and will feature undefeated Cuban boxer Rances Barthelemy fighting Kiryl Relikh of Belarus for the vacant WBA light welterweight title as the co-main event.
