IBF Junior Welterweight Champion Sergey Lipinets is very grateful to be fighting ‘the best of the best’ when he faces Mikey Garcia at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday.
Speaking at the final press conference at the Omni La Mansion in San Antonio on Thursday, Lipinets said: “I’m very happy for this opportunity. If you’ve followed my career you’ve seen that I never take a shortcut. It meant a lot to win a world title but I’ve really always wanted to fight the best of the best. Mikey gave me that chance and I was eager to take it.
“I’m young, I’m hungry and I have a great team behind me. I’m fast, strong and I have all the confidence I need heading into this fight.”
