Sergey Lipinets Vs Custio Clayton: Fight Prediction, Card, Preview As You...

A change of opponents and a postponed fight date have not dampened the hopes of former 140-pound champion Sergey Lipinets of winning a world title in a second weight class.

After the undefeated Kudratillo Abdukakhorov was forced to postpone his original date against Lipinets (16-1, 12 KOs) due to constant visa problems and finally retired, the Kazakh all-action player will now face Canada’s Custio Clayton (18 -0, 12 KOs). on Saturday in the main event of a Showtime Boxing: Special Edition card (9 pm ET) von der Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The IBF tentative welterweight title fight makes the winner the mandatory challenger for the title of Errol Spence Jr .. Spence, who has been sidelined for more than a year due to the coronavirus pandemic and a frightening car accident, returns in a pay per-view conflict with former champion Danny Garcia.

The 31-year-old Lipinets is driving a three-fight winning streak that includes a bout against Lamont Peterson after losing his IBF junior welterweight solo career to Mikey Garcia in 2018.

The opponent’s change didn’t come as a complete shock to Lipinets, who, after being made aware of Abdukakhorov’s potential problems, was given Clayton’s name as a potential replacement. So Lipinets and trainer Joe Goossen had enough time to change their schedule for this weekend.

“It was really just about Joe putting pieces together for my style, no matter who we were confronted with,” Lipinets said during the virtual press conference on Thursday. “People might not think so, but I can box well and move around the ring. Joe added elements that made him a more fluid style. ”

Clayton, a 33-year-old former Olympic gold medalist nicknamed “War Machine,” said he benefited greatly from the five-week announcement that combat was a possibility and believes he has the style to perfectly contrast the Lipinets’ aggression .

“Most people see me as an aggressive fighter too. I always like to hit, but I think you will see another side of me, “said Clayton. “I think my boxing ability will be the biggest factor in this fight. It’s just that no one has seen it before. That will be the big key. People don’t understand how smart I am. I don’t look at the size. I am prepared for anything. ”

Regardless of what is at stake, should he win, Lipinets vows to give Clayton the full respect he deserves the moment they step in the ring.

“I’m not looking past Clayton. I have to win this fight and I am 100% focused on it, ”said Lipinets. “But I think I’m on par with Errol Spence Jr. and the other elite world champions. I think I’ve shown this all my career. Before I can watch a fight against Spence or Danny Garcia, I have to win on Saturday. ”

Battle card

  • Sergey Lipinets versus Custio Clayton, world weights
  • Xavier Martinez versus Claudio Marrero, great featherweights
  • Malik Hawkins versus Subriel Matias, Junior World Weights

forecast

The most noticeable difference between the two fighters is Clayton’s lack of experience against the elite competition. Not only has Clayton never fought professionally outside of his native Canada, but he has never presented anyone with the combination of skill and intransigence that has become Lipinets’ calling card.

Expect Lipinet’s pressure to swallow Clayton over the course of the rounds. He lands precise and powerful combinations close by and has a chin to withstand the firepower in return, even as a smaller welterweight.
